Summer Menu

You may have noticed we’ve made some subtle changes to our menu in July to fully take advantage of the great summer produce we now have available. From our Crushed Avocado on Sourdough toast or our slightly more heavy Avocado Medley, to our classic Poached eggs on Toast, we have healthy, yet deliciously filling options for you to have at breakfast.

Enjoy our daily quiche served with a  generous side salad. You’ll get to experience the delicious flavours of Red Pepper and Feta, or Smoked Salmon and Watercress while enjoying some quality time with a friend.  For a lighter option enjoy our Chicken Caesar Salad - Chicken and Smoked Bacon served on a bed of crisp bed of Gem Lettuce; perfect for those warmer days when a larger meal feels like a bit to much.

Finally finish off your meal with one of our delectable fruit or chocolate sundaes. A juicy combination of summer fruits, strawberry and vanilla ice cream topped with almonds, syrup and whipped cream or Chocolate Decadence with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, home-made brownie, chocolate sauce, whipped cream topped off with Maltesers; items every member of the family will enjoy.

Book Events

After the success of ‘Boredom Busting at Beatons’ during the summer last year, this year it returns with a passion. Throughout the summer we will be hosting many book events in the tearooms for all ages, but especially children to well and truly bust the boredom during the summer holidays.

We’ve recently had some great book events take place; including Richard Issac’s signings at Blandford, Tisbury and New Milton, Fanny Charles and Gay Pirrie—Weir’s talk and signing in Tisbury and Chris Oswald’s very recent signing in Blandford. We very much look forward to hosting more authors this summer! To find out what events are taking place in your local tearoom, keep an eye on our blog, in our ‘Dates for your Diary’ section of the Bulletin and on our social media; or simply ask a member of the team!

Tea of The Month - Iron Goddess Oolong

Our tea of the month is always a little easier on your purse and usually has great health benefits.

Can we can tempt you to try something a bit different today?

What is it?
Iron Goddess Oolong

Ti Kuan Yin Oolong tea is grown in the Fujian province in  China and has a number of wonderful, mythological tales surrounding its origin to be known as Iron Goddess of Mercy. As an Oolong, there are a number of grades and this premium Ti Kuan Yin yields a sweet taste with a fragrant  finish which makes it a very popular choice.

A light bodied tea with a slightly sweet and floral taste, Iron Goddess would go perfectly with one of our breakfast items as a great way to start the day.
