Thomas Oken Tea Rooms

Set against the castle wall, this beautiful old building was built over 500 years ago for its namesake, a wealthy and philanthropic merchant. Thomas Oken died on 29th July 1573 and left most of his money in trust to aid the poor and to fund education and housing in Warwick. The house is still maintained by the charitable trust he set up in his will, but is now a charming Tea Rooms that can be enjoyed by everyone visiting and living in Warwick, whose proprietors Jo and Mike - always ensure a warm welcome and friendly service from their team.

On the ground floor there are 2 cosy seating areas and a shop selling gifts, teas and fine bone china, some of which is made in Warwick. Upstairs is an elegant drawing room style space with comfortable armchairs and coffee tables which can also be hired for private functions. We serve over twenty different kinds of loose leaf teas, ethically sourced from all around the world, as well as gourmet fresh coffees. Our extensive menu offers hot and cold savouries (such as traditional favourites like Welsh Rarebit and Lamb Hotpot), as well as sweet treats including our Warwick Cream Teas, Oken Afternoon Teas and a range of delicious home-baked cakes. All are served on fine bone china in a traditional setting, and where possible, produce is sourced locally or is homemade.
