Great Places for a Cuppa in Cannock

Cup of tea

There’s some truly British about a cup of tea. Of course, it’s a drink that we have countries such as China and India to thank for, but this is a country that seemed to adopt it and claim it as its own. Wherever you may roam in the UK, you can be sure that you’ll come across an array of places that offer a great cuppa. The great news is that Cannock is no different.

Sometimes, it’s not just about the tea itself. What you need is somewhere to sit back and enjoy it. It may be the views that make it special, or it could be the atmosphere. Perhaps you’re more interested in what else is on offer besides the tea. No matter what you’re looking for, we’re sure that Cannock will have something to suit. Here’s a look at our top 5 places to enjoy with a cup of tea to hand.

Springslade Lodge

If you’re someone who is looking to enjoy some of the amazing walks that Cannock has to offer, then Springslade Lodge could well be your perfect starting point. Situated on Cannock Chase, it is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and provides the perfect starting point for walkers and ramblers. If you’re looking to enjoy your cuppa while enjoying the great outdoors, there is the option to place your order through a serving hatch. This is a great option for those sunnier days where heading indoors would just be such a waste.

If you choose to enjoy your tea indoors, you’ll find a traditional tearoom setting with comfortable seating. The log burner ensures that it’s kept warm even during the winter months. You can also choose to make use of the benches in the private garden. This is a picturesque area where you can sit back, rest, and enjoy your refreshments. If you’re looking for more than just a cup of tea then you’ll find that there’s some great food available here too.

Hannah’s Artisan Café

If you’re looking to get back to basics then that’s just what you’ll find at Hannah’s Artisan Café. This isn’t an establishment that’s looking to dazzle you with a fancy interior. It’s not going out of its way to even impress you with the exterior. What it does impress with are a fantastic cup of tea and some great value food. This tea spot is located in the Market Place in Cannock and is close to the war memorial. It has often been described as a great find as people have stumbled across it on their travels. Of course, the locals know it exists and they certainly take advantage of it. Now you know that it exists too!

Alongside a great cuppa, you can expect to be able to enjoy some decent coffee too. There’s also a menu that contains the likes of sandwiches, casseroles, and even pork pies. You’ll find that the prices are more than reasonable (another reason to love this place) and that the staff are polite and friendly too.
