The perfect combo:
cream tea and deer
Why locals love it
This is a real local gem where you can enjoy deliciously homemade cream tea inside a quintessentially British Georgian mansion, surrounded by nature and a jolly bunch of local deer. Summer is the season for a trip to this serene spot in Richmond Park, but any time of the year will offer new perspectives.
Why you should visit it
Pembroke Lodge tea rooms is charming inside and out. Despite high ceilings and decorative friezes, with its mahogany floors, its fireplaces, and its communal atmosphere, it feels as homely as stepping into somebody's home. The scones are big, crunchy and moist all at the same time - a true delight!
The tea room is located close to Richmond Gate, not far from Richmond Hill, a scenic outlook of idyllic cow pastures and the river Thames.
