Odette’s Tea Rooms, Wellington, Somerset
If vintage tea rooms are your thing you are going to love Odette’s Tea Rooms in Wellington; it’s all very pretty inside and out with a lovely atmosphere and lashings of rustic Somerset charm, mixed with a little French chic. Out the back is a gorgeous and secluded garden where you can sit amongst the herbs and salad vegetables that are grown to use in the food that’s served here.
For lunch you might opt for a sandwich, a giant crumpet or a baked potato; maybe a platter of pate, cheese or cold meat, or Baked Camembert, a French tartine, or Smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. And then there’s the cake, all homemade, all absolutely delicious. Go for afternoon tea and you’re in for a treat – they even do a Chocoholics Cream Tea and a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea, all served on real china plates of course.
A lovely bit of history is that the inspiration for Odette’s Tea Rooms comes from a local World War II heroine, Odette Hallows who was a British Secret Agent during World War II. Remarkably, Odette survived months of torture in a German prison camp and there is a display of her possessions in the Imperial War Museum in London.
