Bantam Tea Rooms take great pride in selecting only the finest locally sourced produce available within the Cotswolds.  From start to finish their bakers lovingly handcraft a wide selection or sweets & treats for your satisfaction.

They want you to not only enjoy the Bantam on your visit but to be able to take a piece of it home with you – whether it be cake, jam or chutney. You can enjoy the taste of the Bantam wherever and whenever you please.

All food is home-baked, made or prepared fresh on the premises.  Food & drink is available to take away and if you have enjoyed the homemade Jams & Chutneys please ask the staff as these are also available to purchase.  All food is cooked fresh and to order. This allows them to provide the quality you expect.

The Bantam building is over 300 years old and has a long and interesting history.  It was built in 1693 in the time of the Stuarts, William III and Mary II, when it was known as the Guild House.  Little is known about the place for the next 200 years but by the early 1900s it had become Grandfather Izod’s Dairy.  In 1919 it became a butchers shop run by Thomas William Hopkins, a beef and pork butcher.  It continued as a butchers shop until the Second World War and the old butcher’s rail can still be seen in the tea room.  In 1947 the Stansfield family arrived, setting up an antique shop on the premises.  The Stansfields moved on at the end of 1949 and by the early 1950s the first eating place had been established in the building.

The name ‘Bantam’ was derived from a hotel across the road known as ‘The Golden Cockerel’, which was instrumental in establishing the first Bantam Tea Rooms here – hence the golden cockerel perched on top of the Bantam Tea Rooms sign.  The 1960s was a famous era for The Bantam when it was run by Miss Betty Brock and her waitresses known as The Bantam Babes.

There is some confusion over the date that the name became “The Lygon Arms”, However, in 1837 an old document refers to “The Hare and Hounds, now called the Lygon” – the hotel is proud to continue providing contemporary and stylish 4-star accommodation.
