Living in the heart of the Potteries, Staffordshire, I’m lucky to have a number of lovely tea rooms nearby. Perfectly placed in Froghall Wharf in the Staffordshire Moorlands, Hetty’s Tea Room is a dream of cosy interiors, homemade scones and incredible oatcakes.
Where to Find Hetty’s Tea Room
You’ll find Hetty’s Tea Room in the lovely Froghall, Staffordshire. Head down Foxt Road and you’ll find this lovely canal-side café perched along the water’s edge, surrounded by greenery.
Being on a number of walking routes, as well as close to holiday homes and canal boat rides, Hetty’s Tea Room is always popular. You’ll find a large car park next to the café but don’t worry if this is full, walkers use the car park as a base so you might still get a table inside!
Inside Hetty’s Tea Shop
From the rustic brick walls to the fireplace offering a refuge on winter days, the cosy interiors of Hetty’s Froghall tea room are just the ticket for relaxing with a cuppa after a stroll around the surrounding nature. The tea-related quotes and decor set the scene perfectly for your tea time treats.
Step outside and you’ll find a scattering of picnic benches perfectly placed close to the canal-side and ideal if you have brought your furry friend along.
Afternoon Tea & Freshly-Made Scones
From warming soups to afternoon teas and everything in between the menu at Hetty’s Tea Shop doesn’t fail to disappoint. Those who are after some delicious Staffordshire dishes will find a choice of oatcakes on the menu with your choice of filling (or fillings) as well as a wide variety of traditional tea room menu options.
If it is afternoon tea you are looking for, check out Hetty’s Platter. Pick your choice of delicious filled sandwich, an incredible home-made scone in a ton of fantastic flavours and wash it down with a pot of tea. The afternoon tea-type fare is priced at around £8.50 making it a bargain.
They even do breakfasts, with fluffy pancakes dowsed in yummy syrup and a whole selection of brunches and more.
… Did I mention they have a cakeaway menu option?

Tea Room Walks
Whilst sampling the menu at Hetty’s, it would be a shame if you missed out on the lovely surrounding nature. Having sampled the freshly-made scones we were keen on stretching our legs and found a wide choice of walks.
From easy walks to difficult, the surrounding routes wander along the Cauldon Canal and the beautiful Churnet Valley. You’ll also find the Churnet Valley railway nearby where you can jump onboard a restored steam train. They even do themed days such as 1940’s days so watch out for them whilst you are in the area.
