Having visited the excellent Baggins Bookshop and finding a great copy of Saki’s short stories, I was in need of a cup of tea, so followed the sign up some narrow stairs. There was a caution sign on the gents toilets about being for customers only, then I was in Peggoty’s Parlour. The parlour is a large room with sash windows overlooking the wonderful High Street and Cathedral, with tables for two or four. I ordered a cream tea, which was one of the best I have ever enjoyed - the fruit scones were deliciously warm and the cream was in a generous supply, along with some great strawberry jam (jelly for you colonials). The waitress was very polite and efficient- from ordering to delivery took 2 minutes! You pay at the table in cash and then I had to use the gents as a paying customer! The lack of space means you have to try your luck, but if you are lucky, enjoy a slice of ye olde England for a very reasonable price : I paid £5 for the exemplary cream tea.

Went to pegerty's sun 22nd oct for a celebrationary afternoon tea with 21 other ladies, there were 3 or 4 to a table. The food was very very good, 1st we had a whole stand of lovely fresh sandwiches for each table with unlimited hot & cold drinks, then a whole stand of lovely warm scones with cream & jam plus other cakes, simply delicious, we couldn't eat all the cakes so we were given a paper bag each to take then home, I would definitely recommend the afternoon tea for £12. Well done also to all of the waitress's, we had a lovely time thank you. I will definitely be visiting again for another 'afternoon tea'.

Lovely quaint tea room that can be easily missed if not paying attention. Very popular for a reason, good choice of breakfast, lunch, brunch, afternoon tea and cake selection, scones and cakes homemade and delicious. Great friendly service, willing to be flexible with food options. Fair price and on the first floor, so if sitting by a window you look out onto the street. A hidden little gem and well worth a visit. Would highly recommend.

In need of sustenance,having had an early start and spent many hours on the road and waiting at the airport arrivals gate we hit the road and found 'Peggoty's' the service was excellent friendly, helpful and accommodating of our personal preferences, the surroundings peaceful, light and blissfully relaxed, we truly wished we had more time to stay and sample more of the menu and the mouthwatering cake and dessert selection, we did however have all day breakfasts with tea and oodles of hot buttered toast, poached eggs cooked to perfection runny as asked for and bacon that we all agreed will remain in our memory as the best,till we next visit 'Peggoty's', we wish we lived closer, thank you for a perfect break.(easy parking close by)
