Crooked House Tearooms

Located in Windsor, the crooked house was built in 1718 as part of the butchers’ shambles. It leans as it was built with green, unseasoned timber!  It stands between the Guildhall and Queen Charlotte Street, which is the shortest street in England – just 52ft long.  A local legend claims that there is a secret passage in the basement, which was used by Nell Gwynn, to gain entry to the Windsor Castle kitchens for her secret meetings with Charles II.  We show it as the quintessential English Tea room, the table in the downstairs window laid with blue & white china and ready for tea! We launched this ceramic with a Collectors’ tea in the building in 2004. Available in two colorways, as shown and with green in place of burgundy edge brickwork.  Please email after ordering if you have a colour preference.

The Crooked Tea Room stands 16.5cm tall (8 & 1/2″) to the top of the chimney, and 7.5cm (3″) wide at the widest point.
