Tucked Away in a Little Courtyard
We are open everyday except Monday throughout the year from 10 o’clock in the morning, our little tearoom has its own little courtyard seating area, perfect for better weather days.
A Delightful Meeting Place
You will find us just opposite the market area in the High Street, in The Little Barn Courtyard. We are a bit tucked away, out of sight, but that’s why our customers often refer to us as “A Hidden Gem”.
“A family run Tea Room where everything is a treat!”
The Chiltern’s in Summer
The Chiltern countryside has so much to enjoy on these late spring into warm summer days, there are quiet country lanes, shady footpaths, wonderful rural views and delightful places to visit.
The little town of Wendover attracts visitors from all over the world, who come to see its little antique shops, or set off on a Ridgeway walk or cycle ride.
Just a short distance from The Lady Grey you will find the woodlend footpath that gently climbs to the top of nearby Coombe Hill, from which you will find unbroken views of the Vale of Aylesbury.
Alternatively a short walk to the Wendover arm of The Grand Union canal, offers a very different experience. Under the shade of the trees the canal is home to a wide range of wildfowl.
Getting back to nature is good for the soul, so take a break from the rush of every day life and enjoy the peace and relaxation of a Chiltern walk, there’s nothing quite like a cream tea to reward you at the end.
Thank You All So Much!
Two years ago our customers helped us to achieve our Fifth Consecutive Annual Tripadvisor Excellence Award which has meant that we joined the TripAdvisor “Hall of Fame”.
Last year we were awarded the 2021 Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice Award, denoting that our little tearoom was considered to be amongst the top 10% of restaurants worldwide.
The Lady Grey is always in the top few ‘restaurants’ in Wendover, which is a delightful recognition for a little tearoom. We constantly strive to produce the best possible experience for our customers and it gives us great pleasure to be rewarded for those efforts.
When you receive recognition by your clientele there is no better accolade, so thank you all so much for your support!
A great way to experience The Chilterns is off road with an All Terrain Electric Bike. Our friends at Banging Bikes rent out state of the art top specification machines.

"Wendover's best kept secret !"
Was looking for a place to have a really classic afternoon tea experience where they serve tea in a bone china cup and saucer ! This tea room did not let us down . It is tucked away in a courtyard and looks like a shed from the outside ! Inside really tasteful vintage decoration. Lovely homemade cakes and about 23 types of tea to drink.
The only downside was that it was small and you could not book , unless going for the full cream tea . However we were lucky and got a table just as people were leaving. I am reluctant to review this as I don’t want it to be so busy that next time I won’t get a seat !
“Fabulous gluten free cakes”
I’m writing to recommend this delightful cafe to everyone but especially coeliacs and those intolerant to gluten. There were a number of gluten free cake options and you can also order gluten free scones for a cream tea. For those who are lactose or dairy intolerant, the kind and smile staff also had soya milk for me for my tea. A charming spot to rest from our cycling. Many thanks to the Lady Grey staff.
“Small But perfectly Formed”
A heavy shower helped my wife and I make the decision to find refuge for a well earned refreshment break. Found this quirky little cafe located in a alley off the main road through Wendover. Interesting and original internal decoration and objects on display, we had a couple of cappuccinos with a slice of cake each served by friendly and efficient staff. All tasted delicious. Highly recommended.
“Afternoon coffee and cake”
My husband and I Enjoyed a visit to this quaint little tea room today, I have to say it didn’t disappoint. They had an excellent range of home cooked cakes, I choose carrot and it was gorgeous! Staff were friendly and the prices were very reasonable. Will definitely be visiting again very soon!
"Thanks for lightening up our afternoon!!"
Came here for tea with my wife to this lovely cute tea rooms. They have a lunch menu until about 2:30/3 after which they do cakes and scones only.
We tried the plain scones with clotted cream (was homemade) and jam. They were delicious so we ended up having an extra one and took two more take away! The tea was lovely and they use loose tea rather than tea bags.
The staff are friendly and approachable. I would recommend anyone passing through the town to visit this place.
“What a find!”
I was out with my sister and a couple of friends last Friday, and we set about finding a tea room for a late morning tea and cake. We regularly try different places for a catch up, but we will be looking no further now- this place is the best! Cute décor, most friendly and personable staff, and (most importantly) delicious cakes!
“Lovely service and amazing cakes”
My Granny and I have been to Lady Grey three times in the past month for a spot of lunch over the weekend and have been bowled over each time.
On all occasions we’ve been served quickly with a smile, and we’ve enjoyed everything we have managed to try so far — delicious sweet and savoury scones, best quiche I’ve ever had, and really special cakes.
So pleased we’ve found it – we will be back, hopefully very soon! Thank you!
“Wonderful tearoom full of charm”
Went with husband for a quick cup of tea……..saw the cakes and decided to stay longer! Huge selection of ‘proper’ teas, lovely home-made cakes and happy, enthusiastic staff.
