Duchess Tea Rooms

The Duchess Tea Rooms is an oasis in the busy town of Bandon. And a comfortable one at that, with sofas scattered around the room, where you may enjoy your tea or coffee with a tempting pastry or a well-baked scone with lashings of cream and jam.


Sophie Atkinson-Hall and her friendly staff will help you make the right choice whether you want just a cuppa or a coffee (supplied by Java Republic and it’s great coffee, although their ware is a little out of place here) or you’re here for the full afternoon tea treatment.


That afternoon tea is a feature here. Take your time and linger on that sofa as you work your way through the treats, both savoury and sweet. You’ll have dozens of loose leaf teas to choose from including the popular Tiger Lily and well known Earl Grey, even a Rainy Day Remedy Tea, all served in pretty china cups. Look out for Bandon Cream, a unique blend of tea made especially for the Duchess Tea rooms that contains roasted coffee beans and jasmine flowers has a creamy, faint coffee taste.


The tea rooms are open all day from Monday to Saturday so you may also indulge in breakfast, brunch and lunch. Try the popular pan fried spring onion & herb potato cake with honey baked ham, fried or poached egg, relish & rocket for example, or perhaps their Spanish omelette with free range eggs. And there’s always a soup on offer - watch out for the gorgeous tomato chickpea and chorizo soup.


A great little spot to know about.
