Ye Olde, er, Japanese tearooms … in the middle of the English countryside!?

Looking for a quirky twist in the middle of the English countryside? Well, East meets West right here in the middle of Cotswolds Life with the Japanese family-run English tea rooms, The Olde Bakery Tea Shoppe, named Les Routiers Café of the Year 2005, Wales & The Marches.

Owned and run by the Miyawaki family, and housed in a Grade II listed building, award winning cream tea, afternoon tea, cakes and pastries are served up in a traditional English setting in the beautiful town of Winchcombe.

Juri Miyawaki, after graduating from University of St. Andrews, trained at Le Cordon Bleu London receiving a Grand Diplôme;  interned at Raymond Blanc’s 2 Michelin Star Hotel Restaurant, Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons; and has written two books, ‘The Blue Skies of Cordon Bleu’ (コルドン・ブルーの青い空. Kodansha Bunko Collection, 2001) and ‘A Tearoom in the Cotswolds’ (コッツウォルズでティールーム. Bunka Shuppan Kyoku, 2008). In April 2008 Juri won the Tea Council’s prestigious UK Top Tea Place 2008 , and then appeared in BBC 1’s Country File (Sun, 18.05.08).
