Audrey and I visited Martha’s Coffee House in March 2018. I paid £7.50 for a cream tea.

Martha’s Coffee House is in a beautiful location right at the heart of Moreton-in-Marsh, in The Cotswolds. It is a mere stroll from The Manor House Hotel where I was staying with Audrey. They have a well-earned reputation for their scones and I was keen to try them for myself. In addition to scones (both sweet and savoury) they serve a breakfast and lunch menu with all the expected items, as well as roasts on Sundays. Of course, they have a lovely range of cakes and sweet treats on offer. There is a courtyard at the back with additional outdoor seating.
Dog Friendly Score
Dogs are allowed in both the indoor and outdoor seating areas. Audrey was welcomed with 2 gravy bones, served on her own little plate, and got a further treat as we left. (I’m going to ignore the fact that Audrey had plonked her bum down and wasn’t going to leave until our kind waitress gave her another treat!). I sat indoors by the lovely window, and my table had plenty of space around it so Audrey was not squashed in at all. I didn’t see a dog bowl for water, so if there is one they would do well to position it more prominently.
Food and Drinks at Martha’s Coffee House
My week long trip to The Cotswolds was coming to an end, and I still hadn’t had a cream tea! This aberration of mine obviously needed rectifying. So even though Martha’s has some fabulous sounding scone specials (eg. blueberry scone with melted brie) I decided to have a traditional cream tea. Like most cream teas this was 2 scones served with clotted cream and jam, and a pot of tea. My scones were served warm with generous servings of jam and cream (don’t you hate it when they serve you a tiny amount of cream!). The china (plates, tea pots, cups etc) was so nice that it is worth mentioning here. I would have been delighted to take a tea set home with me.
I spent a lovely hour at Martha’s. Even though it wasn’t busy there was still a nice atmosphere. The service was attentive and welcoming without being overwhelming. They don’t have a website but are engaged on social media. I fully recommend a trip to Martha’s Coffee House if you are ever in Moreton-in-Marsh.
There is a well stocked pet shop directly opposite called Pet Necessities that is worth popping into. Be aware though, they don’t accept card payments for purchases under £10.
Moreton-in-Marsh hosts the largest open air street market in The Cotswolds every Tuesday. I would expect the town to be considerably busier on Tuesdays so bear that in mind when planning your trip.
