Tea for Two at Huffkins Tearoom

It seems a while since we went out as a family to eat lunch together at a tearooms or similar eatery. In fact I may go as far as saying that we've not been out since having our youngest. Ok we did have the geocaching picnic last weekend but we all brought our own food and shared with one another.


On Sunday we decided to try out the family music festival in Charlbury to the west of the county. Unfortunately, there looked to be little room to park in the area and as we arrived so did the rain so a lot of people seemed to be leaving.

Instead of deciding to head home straight away we travelled further west to a place called Burford. There we browsed the various shops before heading to Huffkins for a bite to eat. I've always loved the lovely food they do there particularly the cakes.



On browsing the menu we decided to plump for the BBQ pulled pork on a bap which came with chips and a side dish (ramekin) of coleslaw. I'm rather fussy regards food preferring my food to be rather plain so I was pleased to see that you have the option of putting it on yourself or leaving it free from the dressing. For drinks we opted for one tea, a strawberry milkshake and they also brought us some water.  

If you have a meal in the tearoom you get a discount off of their cakes. Something we would have loved to have taken advantage of. Unfortunately we didn't have time for cake browsing at the end of our meal.
The tearoom staff were very friendly and made us feel at ease while we juggled our girls. We did have a moment when one of the bottles went flying and the littlest has taken to chirping for attention but on the whole they were really well behaved.


The tearoom itself appears to be very accommodating of families. Our eldest soon discovered a hamper full of toys available to play with. There are high chairs and bumbos ready to use and the changing facilities were found to be clean and non-gender biased. The only thing I would change is the steps going into the premises that also make it difficult for those with a disability not just babies who can’t walk.

So if you are in the Cotswolds why not check out Huffkins when you visit. They truly are a delight.

Where have you eaten out lately?

  7. "No time for cakes" *sobs* I would have been devastated! In fact no. Scrap that. I would have cancelled my order for a main and just ordered cake and lots of it! Although to be fair pulled pork does sound nice. With a side of cake obvs. Great review lovely. Thanks for linking with #fartglitter x

    1. The pulled pork was delicious. In hindsight I think I should have sent hubby next door to choose some cake while we waited for our meal.

  8. I love cafes with a box of toys for kids. It really helps their mums and dads enjoy a few sips of coffee or tea in peace. On of our favourite places to eat out with our girls is a leisure centre near us. There's soft play in the cafe area. Genius! #triedtested

  13. I love little cafe's and tea rooms that have toys for the little ones, it makes a visit so much less stressful when you have restless children! It sounds a great little place to eat :)
