Add Tastebuds to your Itinerary


The popular tea room and restaurant is situated in the beautiful village of Rufford, serving hearty, traditional, British cuisine alongside delicious contemporary dishes, in a charming and cosy atmosphere. Tastebuds use, where possible, fresh and locally sourced ingredients supplied by local farmers/producers and support small nearby businesses.

Tastebuds at Fettlers Wharf Marina caters for all; whether it’s a catch up with friends over a coffee, refuelling, post cycle or walk, or enjoying wholesome food with family. The extensive menu includes favourites such as lasagne, steak and ale pie, a selection of sandwiches, toasties and paninis, as well as daily specials and gluten free options.

Cakes are available to takeaway if you don’t quite have room after your meal and the deli selection also includes a range of pies, biscuits, jams and chutneys, as well as frozen homemade pies.

Tastebuds is also renowned for their afternoon tea trays, as shown in the pictures above, which include a large selection of miniature sweet and savoury snacks. Afternoon tea trays require a booking at least 24 hours in advance.
