Allium Brasserie

Independently owned and uniquely stylish. The promenade of North Parade was undoubtedly visited by Miss Austen. Follow in her footsteps and take tea on our terrace, lunch, dinner and cocktails would be good too. Why not try the Northangover Abbey Cocktail or the special lunchtime deal on the Terrace on 11th September. Special discount for Festival attendees and those in costume throughout the Festival.

Bea’s Vintage Tea Rooms

Step back in time when you enter Bea’s charming Vintage Tea Rooms next to the Assembly Rooms and Fashion Museum on Saville Row in Bath. Decorated in authentic 1930s/1940s style from the dainty china tea sets and embroidered tablecloths to the ceiling lampshades, bevelled mirrors and wartime posters. It offers a blissful retreat from the hustle and bustle of this popular historic city.

Jane Austen Centre Regency Tea Rooms

Situated on the 2nd Floor of the Jane Austen Centre is the very popular Regency Tea Room, with the most delicious cakes and of course excellent afternoon tea –  ‘Tea with Mr Darcy’! Rest your reticule, meet up with other Festival enthusiasts and come and soak up the atmosphere whilst savouring a pot of real leaf tea – Assam or Jane Austen blends are particularly good or for a more delicate flavour why not try Earl Grey?
