“Permanent closure”
Review of Sonning Tea Room

Very disappointed to hear that this very popular tea room is closing. Apparently the cost to fix the issue with the toilets at the lock is beyond the Environment Agency budget. Such a shame as the tea room raises a lot for Macmillan.

We often stop here whilst walking our dog along the river.
Nice and relaxed, quite busy at times when the sun is shining. Service ok sandwiches and cakes are lovely.
One negative point, there is a toilet but always seems to be out of order?

I love this place its so pretty and the tea rooms have great views of the weir.
However, the toilets have been out of action for weeks which makes it very akward if you want to go before a walk aling the Canal.
Not sure whos responsibility it is to het them fixed but would recommend that they put pressure on someone to do it soon!

Lovely place to have lunch or a snack in a pretty garden adjacent Sonning Lock on the River.
They serve a range of sandwiches, wraps,and homemade cakes, love they're bread pudding, also tea, coffee, and ice creams.
Great to sit and relax and watch the boats pass by.
It is idyllic on a sunny day, but you do need the weather, with most seating outside.
They also give great value for money Very reasonable
The tea room also generates money for good cause charities with various functions.
Only downside its a longish walk from the road to the lock and the outside toilets at the lock are in need of refurbishment.
Over all though on a good day i recommend this tea garden.

We were so happy to find this tea room when we couldn't get into the restaurant coppa club after a friends wedding. We had some lovely tea cakes and a filter coffee. Would have been great to have had something savoury but they weren't ready to do sandwiches at 11am. Very reasonably priced.
