Re Polly Tea Rooms ... I think they are also now in Salisbury and Wilton. Another one of note is the tea room (can't recall the name) at the top of Gold Hill in Shaftesbury. You can sit outside and admire the old cottages lining the steep street - such a classic English scene, with the beautiful Dorset countryside in the background. We took our daughter there when she was little and she loved walking up and down the hill (I was knackered as it is very steep)! It is famous for the Hovis ads and also the film Far From the Madding Crowd (where Sgt Troy rides up the hill with his soldiers). Can't remember the quality of the food, but the setting is wonderful.
