Call In and Pause for a Cup of Tea and a Cake at an Oasis of Peace and Quiet.

Well, it looks as though everyone is having loads of fun in the shops today! If, however, shopping in the UK on the weekend before Christmas is getting a little bit too much for the nerves, why not call in to Oakford Cottage Tea Rooms. We have special offers at the moment to help you unwind after a trip to the town.

                                                      Mug of Tea/Coffee and Mince Pie        £1.00
                                                      Soup and Roll                                        £2.50

Come and sit in front of the fire and enjoy.

As we will not be away over Christmas please note that we will therefore be OPEN AS USUAL for our Christmas Day Morning Coffee and Mince Pies event. ALL the proceeds will go to this years charity which is Derbyshire Air Ambulance. Come and listen to Carols being sung, or even join in! There will be the usual Saxophone and Flute accompaniment!

Coming Soon-----New look Tea Room/Dining Room!!

It may be quiet, but we are still busy! There is decorating to be done as well as the normal maintenance outside. Also our Tea Room/Dining Room is undergoing a facelift! Dogs are now welcome inside providing their owners are well behaved and clean. Also we are hopefully getting a new floor covering soon that will be better suited to wellies and walking boots.

No Hols this year!

Well it has certainly gone a bit quiet at the moment, however this is always a bit of a quiet time of year for us. That's why we normally go on our hols around Xmas/New Year. However this year as Jacky is still suffering with her foot, we can't fly so here we stay, for this year anyway. However we are really missing our trip to India and our friends in Cavelossim, Javed Jalla, Mark and Anil.

Cold Day = Tacos Soup

          The cure for miserable wet weather is either to pontificate about how we should embrace the seasons OR take measures to ensure that embrace is kind to you! What better way to do this than to have a bowl of hot home made soup, with home made roll and butter, in front of a roaring log fire. Jacky's special soup for tomorrow is the ever popular TACOS, a meal in its self!
