Ah, I love a team room.

All doilies and little pots of jam and fat elderly cats snoozing in the corner in front of the fire.....Lovely.

What about 'coffe house' - any better? Or 'opium den' mayhap?

JANEITEisntErudite Thu 12-Nov-09 22:37:07

'Steak house' or 'Pizza parlour' ? None of them make much sense, do they?!

how can you hate tea rooms???

They have tea and coffee and cakes. What's not to like?

Well, not entirely, I don't like tea, but they do sell cake, which is a huge plus. IMHO.

No problem here with tea rooms here. Not sure what the problem is? There's loads of villages near me and it's nice to round off the day in a tea room with a pot of tea and a big massive slice of cake. Fantastic. What's there not to like?

I love tea rooms. My dream job is inspector for the National Guild of Tea Rooms.

YABU; it is not the most unreasonable thing I have heard. Someone recently told me they didn't like the Beatles. You are nearing that level of unreasonableness though.

Marymother.... Xpost there!! Same last sentence.

Praps SEA means this kind of tearoom?

I bet Starbucks won't do you a lovely slab of battenburg.

God, tea rooms are ACE. What's wrong with you, for heavens sakes?

upahill Thu 12-Nov-09 22:42:09

Do tell! What is the issue with tea rooms?

Lilymaid Thu 12-Nov-09 22:43:23

Tea rooms, tea shop ... love them all.
My latest favourite!

JANEITEisntErudite Thu 12-Nov-09 22:45:47

I like tea rooms much more than The Beatles - can't stand The Beatles.

MillyR Thu 12-Nov-09 22:46:50

The tearoom in Ambleside is the best tea room I have been in so far.

I had my wedding reception in a tea room.

MillyR Thu 12-Nov-09 22:48:19

I really feel personally offended over the Beatles thing; it must be my weak point.

southeastastra Thu 12-Nov-09 22:54:40

oh i worked in a tea room for a while, have a weird perspective on it grin

MaryMotherOfCheeses Thu 12-Nov-09 22:59:10
