God’s Providence House, Newport

Date visited: Monday 21st September 2020

God’s Providence House has a history going back to the plague in the 16th century.

Newport in the Isle of Wight appears to be graced with only one tearoom. God’s Providence House is claimed to have been the only residence in the town where nobody died during the plague of the 16th century.

The establishment has two ground floor and one first floor room for those wishing to take tea, as well as tables outside in St Thomas’ Square.

As an establishment describing itself as ‘Tea Rooms & Licensed Restaurant’, it has quite an extensive food menu, as well as a reasonable, though not extensive, range of tea. A bacon, lettuce and tomato baguette, a rock cake and a pot of peppermint green tea with a pot of extra water came to £10.75.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, a one way system is operating inside.
