The History of Hands Georgian Tearooms

When Hands Georgian Tearoom first opened its doors in 1860, it was just as its founder, Charles Hands, had visualised.

The popularity grew as initially, a successful dairy delivering clotted cream, milk and cheeses to the people of Bath, the Tearooms then evolved.

The legacy of Charles Hands is still apparent on the external wall sign. 

The tearoom is set in a Grade Two listed Georgian Building and has been maintained accordingly.  Decorated in true Georgian style with beautiful chandeliers and period portraits, we are pleased to present our gallery to you.

The Hands Georgian Tearoom is very much a family affair.  Since 1860, just one other family, since the Hands family, has kept the legacy going until the current proprietors took over ownership 23 years ago.

The tearoom is very much an independent business and where possible seeks all its produce from other local independent suppliers.
