The perfect place for Afternoon Tea in Northamptonshire.



Iona and her team would like to welcome you to The Water Mill Tearooms. 

Nestled in the village of Ringstead on The River Nene, our Tearoom offers a cosy place for you to unwind and enjoy our homemade treats. 

Service is at the heart of our beautiful tearoom; you can always be sure to recieve a warm welcome and geniune smile from our fantastic team.

We welcome well behaved dogs in our garden and cosy lounge area of the tearoom. We only ask you not to take them through to the main dining room. 

We source our ingredients locally; our meat comes from an award winning butcher in the next village, our eggs are all free range from a nearby farm and our dairy and vegetables come from our neighbouring village.  The quality of our products are of utmost importance to us and we also really believe in supporting local businesses.

Breakfast is served from 9-11:30 am and lunch from 12-2:30 pm every day we are open.
We also serve a scrummy afternoon tea comprising of a selection of cakes, scones, sandwiches and savory tarts all homemade specially to order so we do ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice (based on availibility)


We sell gift vouchers for afternoon tea- these are valid for six months so you have plenty of time to pick a date to enjoy your gift! If you are unable to pop into the tearoom to collect these, we can happily sort payment via email invoice and post out vouchers for £2.99. 

As if homemade food and delicious beverages weren't enough, our Tearoom is set in a beautiful, historic mill; the original water wheels are still in working order and now turn to generate electricity for the building so come on in and experience all we have to offer!
