Oxford, England

Jane’s Enchanted Tea Garden

Tucked away on Mill Lane and alongside the Oxford canal, Jane’s Enchanted Tea Garden is one of Oxford’s treasures where one can enjoy a classic Afternoon Tea, scones and all.

Tea in a garden

The brainchild of Jane Fanner, the Tea Garden gives visitors a chance to enjoy the rustic beauty of Oxford and enjoy one of England’s quintessential culinary experiences – the Afternoon Tea.

Open during weekends and in the summer months of April through September (not that anyone’s looking to have tea in snowy weather!), the Tea Garden has pretty tables set out in the open and within canopies dotted with fairy lights. The Garden hosts hundreds of visitors who come here for the inimitable English ambience and warm hospitality.

Scones and cakes

The menu at the Tea Garden uses locally produced ingredients and boasts delectable homemade cakes and delicious sandwiches. Even the clotted cream and the tea uses pasteurized milk from the Jersey cows on the farm nearby. The menu is not complicated either – you can choose from the essential Cream Tea or the modest Big High Tea or the extravagant Full Jeeves.

Do remember, it is a garden by a canal – you might want to leave your fancy shoes behind.

Handy tips:

  • Reservation is highly recommended if you’re part of a large group or even otherwise. Walk-ins are always welcome though.
  • Hand sanitizers are provided too – it is a garden after all!
