As a proud member of the Tea Guild, Ginger and Pickles (remember the Beatrix Potter tale?) is firmly focused on tea of the very best kind. When owner Andy set up in the old office of the Nantwich Chronicle newspaper his mind was set on creating a tea room where people could drop by and relax.
It’s defined by excellent food and local produce, served on blue-and-white Burleigh china. Breakfast on hearty fry ups or halloumi stacks, lunch on quiches and generous salads, or drop by for tea and cake. There’s a dinky courtyard garden to enjoy on fine days.
If you’re dashing to get to your final destination, picnics are available to order via the website. But it’s well worth stopping for longer to have a look round the town with its medieval timbered buildings and enthusiastic floral displays.
