The Drawing Room, Cafe/Coffee Shop, Tea Room & Restaurant
2010 Winners of
Retford's "Most Loved Business"
Transport yourself back in time at one of the finest, most individual cafes, tea rooms and restaurants in the Retford area.
Situated in what was once the Mayor's house, The Drawing Room takes inspiration from Agatha Christie's England, with beautiful chandeliers, traditional, antique furniture and Georgian windows, through which to gaze over Retford's main square.
As well as its classical decor, The Drawing Room harks back to the traditional values of quality, presentation and service.
Owned and run by Martin and Jane, The Drawing Room coffee shop/tea room & restaurant is one of Retford's hidden gems. Martin was previously an executive chef for one of the UK's leading 4 and 5* hotel chains, and has years of experience at a number of quality restaurants.
Their ethos is simple: to provide quality, restaurant standard food at cafe prices.
Reviewed by the Worksop Guardian, The Drawing Room was proud to receive 5 stars from the local paper:
"This place, tucked away behind the town's main square, is a real treat for the discerning luncher... the place was full with people, from elderly couples to families with small children.
"The place scores highly on all levels; it has great ambience and it's different - it serves up fabulous food of high quality and freshness; its staff are warm and friendly; and it offers great value for money."
