Announcement from Mackintosh at the Willow.


We’re happy to update you, that in line with government guidance and further clarification, our tearooms is still open to the public. We are closely monitoring the ongoing situation and will continue to act according to government guidelines.

Our tearooms opening hours remain the same, 12noon until 5pm.


We’ll continue to serve up delicious cakes, coffees and teas to anyone who wants to catch up safely with one other household (of up to 6 people) in a beautiful spacious environment. For now, we are not serving alcohol in the tearooms, much like Catherine Cranston in 1903 – who was a firm follower of the temperance movement!

If you don’t feel comfortable visiting, but still want to treat yourself to a delicious afternoon tea, keep an eye on further updates as our takeaway afternoon tea’s and celebration cakes are launching very, very soon.

As always, we have stringent measures in place to help protect you and our staff and you can view on our bookings page.
