Welcome to Lily’s

Lily’s is a small, family-run tearoom situated in the pretty village of Dorchester-on-Thames, often used as a location for Midsommer Murders.

The shop was originally opened as a greengrocer by my grandfather in the 1950s.

We serve hearty breakfasts, coffees and cakes, delicious lunches, and homemade cream teas served on mismatched, vintage china.

We have a good range of gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Take a look at our menu!

We stock a selection of local produce, including honey from the nearby village of Britwell, apple juice from Waterperry Gardens, and locally-made preserves. We  also sell gifts, souvenirs and gift vouchers.

Historic Dorchester Abbey and Wittenham Clumps, with their stunning views, are just a short walk away.

Children and wellies welcome!


Coronavirus/COVID-19 – Open again!

During the current pandemic and ongoing social distancing measures, so that we can ensure the safety of our customers and staff, Lily’s will be opening with a Reduced menu, Reduced Hours and Limited Seating – plus Takeaways!

However, we still want to provide the usual Lily’s experience as much as possible. We can also provide takeaway Lunches, Cakes and Drinks for anyone who would like to eat at home or in the outdoors.

Please see the left-hand panel for more details on our new opening times.
