The South’s Best Tea Rooms Pt III


We have so many amazing places to visit here on the south coast. How about visiting some of the south coast’s best independent tea and coffee rooms!

Laneway Coffee, Lee-on-the-Solent




This cute and cosy little coffee house is full of character serving up a choice of locally roasted coffee and homemade cakes including gluten free Honeybuns!

Lunch and snacks are available and dairy free of you wish.





Hallmark Jewellers, Titchfield village


Few coffee shops are found in jewellery shop! Hallmark in Titchfield village offer something unique.

Set in an award-winning garden, this wonderful little Coffee Shop serves as a real hub of the community. Enjoy locally selected coffee or their very own special blend of ‘Village Gem’ loose-leaf tea.

Cakes, tray bakes and treats, which are all hand made and with a large range of freshly prepared light lunches and fortnightly specials, you will be sure to find something yummy to eat in or take home to enjoy. And you can go gluten-free.


The Cork & Cheese, Park Gate

Cork and cheese




There seems to be a theme here; buy a shop and put in a coffee shop. The C&C, based in Park Gate, near Fareham, not only offer the finest tea/coffee but set in their deli selling local produce. From wine to ales and Hampshire born cheese, you can mull over your shopping list whilst supping in a big mug of the hot stuff.





Mettricks, Woolston,


If we are going to go uber cool with the coffee then Mettricks is the one. Set on what used to be a ship builders this trendy coffee joint is dead centre to the fastest growing apartment development in Southampton.

And they like to keep it in the family:

‘Family because it is our Great Grandparents, George & Margaret Mettrick, who’s name sits over our doors. Margaret was a baker, a homemaker, a Mother, Grandma & Grandma Great. It is to the memory of her hospitality, her baking, her stovetop kettle (whistling) that the team at Mettricks welcomes you.

George was a carpenter, publican & pianist, a Father, Grandad & Grandad Great. It is with a nod to his love of a pint of mild that we serve local real ales. His piano playing antics at pubs & parties that sparked the idea for our live music nights. 

Mettricks – taking inspiration from the timeless ideas of great food & drink, warm welcomes & the best of hospitality.

Other house locations include Guildhall square and and The Old Town, Southampton all within walking distance of our serviced apartments.
