Poppies Vintage Tearoom St Neots 

A trip down memory lane...

For 35 years, the market town of St Neots was without a tea room. However, in 2013, Poppy's Vintage Tearoom opened, and with the passion, hard work and personal service of owner, Alison Gardner and her team, has become a thriving little business, filled to the brim with charm, warmth and of course, mouth-watering food!

In fact, as one customer recently said, “Goodbye diet!” And it's true – if you are trying to be 'good', a trip to Poppy's Vintage Tearoom will be torture, with a huge array of homemade cakes, biscuits, savoury dishes and of course, its highly popular Afternoon Tea.


“The idea to open my own cafe or tea room had always been there,” Alison explained. “Having worked as a Tourist Information Officer in St Neots for eleven years, I knew all too well that there was a need for a tea room in town, just by the amount of people who came into the centre asking if I could recommend one! So in June 2013 Poppy's opened its doors"
