Cecil Beaton Elegance at Beatons Tisbury

As the proud Manager of Beatons Tearooms and Bookshp Tisbury, it's an honour to look after our flagship home Tisbury, Wiltshire.  'Elegance' is the quality we most like when it comes to Beatons' underlying qualities - unsurprising given that society fashion photographer Cecil Beaton inspired our name and interior styling. Elegance was critical to the mix when our founder Patrick Duffy first opened in 2011 and remains so as we expand nationally.

Come in and enjoy our house blend 'Cherry Sencha' -the most elegant loose leaf tea on our menu. We're open 7 days a week, 364 days of the year!

We are also the only Beatons so far to boast a Beatons Breakfast Stand Up Service from Tisbury Station where you can enjoy all our fine quality Italian coffees and a bacon roll to take with you on your commute to London!

This really is 'Cecil Beaton country' - he had two homes in the area. And Tisbury is also home to 'Beatons Central' - our main office HQ - and quite a few famous writers too [link to our Wiltshire Authors Page].

Beatons, with its pretty Terrace, nestling in the Market Square has become the hub of the village. It's the perfect starting place for lunch, tea or a slice of homemade cake (or all three!) - and one of the first places you'll encounter if you travel to Tisbury by train.

Press play, close your eyes and enjoy a virtual cup of tea while we conjure up a picture of Tisbury Beatons for you ...

Around the Square are a cluster of independent shops with a focus on the arts and home that would make Cecil Beaton smile. Directly opposite our Terrace you'll find Ted Martin's - a beautiful Florist.

For the fashion conscious, a few doors down you'll discover designer clothing boutique, Amorrio, along with Polly at Casco who reclaims furniture and turns it into bespoke painted objects of desire.

Up the High Street you'll find the village delicatessen and a little further Kate Good's working studio and pottery shop while over the road Marie's Gifts has children in mind as well as adults. And 'Elisabeth Rose' has recently settled towards the top - selling gorgeous home furnishings and other treasures. We also hear that 'The Stitching Witch' who creates bespoke corsetry has flown in to Tisbury! We can't mention everyone, although osteopaths 'Not Just Backs' have come in useful in the past. Tisbury Business Association's has a useful Directory - link here.

Countryside and Culture?  Of course, the Nadder Valley boasts some of the county's most varied and richly diverse country, and Wiltshire is still home to a veritable army of writers, journalists, artists and historians. Tisbury sits within Cranborne Chase AONB.

We're brewing up a little 'keep it local' flavour this Summer...

Right through August, if your teeth have an appointment with Tisbury Dental Centre, your car has an appointment with Tisbury Motors, your aches and pains have need of 'Not Just Backs' or your itchy feet fancy a change of home and you're visiting Arundell James you can enjoy a touch of 'gracious hospitality' from us, on their behalf...

What exactly is our 'Tisbury Appointments Offer'?

Bring in receipt or proof of your appointment with any of the businesses above on the day and we'd be delighted to give you 25% off your order.
