Mallard Tea Shop

About Mallard Tea Shop

The Mallard is a unique teashop on the theme of the colourful ducks that regularly waddle from the nearby river Eea in search of crumbs. Established in 1995 by Alison Oliver, the sole proprietor and with the help of her sister Heather, the teashop opens every day throughout the year.

Specialising in delicious cakes & puddings, all baked on the premises, The Mallard also offers a choice of homemade soups, a wide range of sandwiches, toasties and jacket potatoes with tasty fillings. The menu also includes a wide selection of teas & coffees, from a blueberry tea to a skinny latte.

Popular with locals, visitors, walkers and cyclists, a friendly welcome awaits with room for twenty-four inside and further seating directly outside. Alternatively, purchases from The Mallard can be enjoyed in the adjacent Unsworth’s Yard courtyard.
