Tucked away at the back of the Jack in the box emporium, this little tea room is great for cuppa and Homemade cake after browsing the extensive contents of the shop. Well worth a visit

Really scrummy chocolate and orange cake and a pot of lapsang - heaven! Friendly service and an interesting shop to browse too.

Spent a fabulous five hours at this lovely tearoom with some of our friends from Doncaster! On a previous visit (we're Ripley locals) I'd noticed that they had an updated version of 'Hotel', a game that my friend and I used to play together as kids and it's tricky to get your hands on! As a surprise, we got them to Jack-in-a-box and then asked for the game. (One of many games they have set aside to play in the tearoom). My friend was so excited, we had a lovely early lunch first and then got the game ready, having drinks (and beautiful cake) throughout. The staff are friendly and helpful and are running a fabulously quirky place! My friend had an ace day to remember - oh and the girls beat the boys!

Fascinating shop with vintage childrens and adults gifts, antiques, cards, jewellery and furniture with a lovely little café set right in the back. Served on vintage china, there is a selection of delicious cakes, panninis and toasted sandwiches. The beverages are scrumptious-tea,coffee and if you aren't on a diet- the most sinful,delicious hot chocolate! Facilities are clean, card games available to use and friendly staff. Try it- next to the interesting Depledge and Woods, down the cobbled courtyard .
