Update May 2017: Since this cake exploration, No.6 Tea Room has now changed to Chestnut Cafe.

Nestled amongst the picturesque Cheshire countryside is a rather pleasant find, stocked the to brim with delicious teas, pretty patisserie, and scrumptious cake. With a vintage inspired flair, and delicious cakes, you'll certainly be glad that you made the journey!


No 6 tea room has been gracing Tarporley with it's delicious treats for the past few years, a picturesque setting, with a quaint look, that combines a traditional tea room, with a vintage flair. If their pretty floral decor outside doesn't tempt you in, then their intriguing turquoise decor will.


A delightful tea room inside, you'll find the bakes of the day nestled at the counter to tempt you. Never the same selection of choices, so you'll certainly be surprised with what patisserie and cakes are available on the day. With treats varying from roulades, to sticky ginger cake, fruit tarts, and carrot cakes, something for everyone.
The bright and airy decor inside certainly makes for a relaxing setting, with a lovely view of the pretty high street and floral seating area outside.

On my visit there was plenty of tasty treats to tempt, from ginger cake, to gateaux's, and scones, I decided to try the carrot and pistachio cake, a lovely twist on the traditional carrot cake. A very moist and sweet bake, the pistachio's adding an extra bit of crunch and flavour to the cake that was simply delicious, and a very hearty portion size too.

To accompany the bake I went for a pot of traditional tea alongside, this came accompanied with a pretty vintage tea strainer for a delightful cuppa. You'll find a full menu of teas, coffees and hot chocolates to accompany your cake.

A rather lovely tea room to visit, certainly worth the drive out to the country to take in a spot of tea, if it's a lovely day out why not try taking tea in the outside seating area for a pleasant outing.
