Quarr Abbey Tea Rooms, Isle of Wight
Located in Quarr Abbey’s serene and beautiful surroundings of the walled gardens, you will discover the popular licensed teashop.
The teashop is making the most of their organically grown produce, that is freshly hand-picked every day, by creating it into their new mouth-watering sharer boards. With daily changing choices of meat platters, fish platters and ploughman’s for two the new sharer boards use the freshly picked salads and produce taken from Abbey’s own allotments to create a delicious lunch for two. Each board has a selection of the Abbey’s tempting chutneys and preserved pears which are selected by the chef to compliment the beautiful meat, fish and local cheeses that are used to create them.
Perfect to share with a friend or loved one with a chilled glass of wine or a refreshing glass of Quarr Abbey apple juice or cider; you can make the most of the sunshine and while away the hours in the tranquillity of the tea garden. The tea shop also offers a wide range of sandwiches, soup, paninis and daily specials so there is something to suit everyone’s taste. Or for those with a sweet tooth then there is a large selection of scrumptious cakes and cream teas available every day. Perfect to accompany a speciality coffee made using Quarr’s own special blend of roasted coffee beans.
The farm shop offers a variety of local Island products along with Quarr Abbey’s own unique range of goodies.
New to the teashop and farm shop this year is Quarr Abbey Ale which is brewed on the Island. It has been brewed to capture the essence of traditional Abbey beers as they were many years ago.
Still and sparkling cider and apple juice are also available to purchase. The apples for the cider came exclusively from the Quarr Abbey orchard.
Jams and chutneys are made on site, using the fresh allotment produce that is organically grown in the gardens. Varieties include raspberry jam, spiced apple jelly, ratatouille chutney and many more.
All the fresh fruit and vegetables, used in the dishes from the teashop menu are available to buy. Organically grown on site, and delivered to the farm shop daily, there is always a pleasing variety of fresh fruit and vegetables to choose from. Also new this year is a unique range craft items which help to support a local charity.
The delicious clear and soft set honey, available throughout the year, is harvested from Quarr Abbey’s very own beehives.
Another favourite for families visiting is Quarr abbey’s own resident Pigs. Bags of pig food (cake) are available to buy in the farm shop for anyone who wants to give them a treat.
