March 20th, 2020

Mother’s Day will certainly be different this year, and we completely understand if you are trying to avoid large crowds, gatherings, and restaurants. Nevertheless, there are still great places you can take your mum this year, which will make her day extra special.

Fancy treating your mum to a traditional high tea, but want to stay at home?

Once Upon a Tea Room in Cheltenham are only operating as a takeaway via Deliveroo or by collection. On Deliveroo, you can select a delicious Afternoon/High Tea or go A La Carte and pick a selection of lovely treats like scones, crepes, cakes and more.
