Beatons Tearooms & Bookshop is a small and friendly tearoom based in the beautiful village of Tisbury (just 19 minutes by train from Salisbury) and inspired by the style and elegance of Cecil Beaton. It is a relaxing place to meet, relax and enjoy a perfect cup of tea, have breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, or browse the specially selected range of books for sale.
Taking pride of place at Beatons is a range of over 25 loose leaf teas, brewed to perfection and elegantly served, or for the coffee drinker a carefully selected range of freshly ground regional coffees. Beatons is also becoming renowned for its range of homemade and specially sourced cakes.
At Beatons we also sell a small but carefully selected range of books. From local country pursuits, speciality cooking, kids books and travel journals through to a range of local authors and those quirky and amusing titles people just can’t put down.
