Really nice and relaxing environment. Lovely food and drink at the tea room with friendly and helpful staff. Be patient if they get busy as there is only one chef in a small kitchen, but it's worth the wait. Staff pointed us in the direction of a nice public footpath walk by the river.

Just back from the loveliest time! The Steam Pump Tea Rooms are in such a beautiful setting. My friend and I sat outside, where I had a delicious cooked veggie breakfast and coffee. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her American pancakes. Later, I had a slice of the Victoria sponge made by Sam, the owner/manager. The piece was huge - but so light, I managed it all! Yummy! Sam is so friendly and the atmosphere is lovely. Highly recommended.

not just your average tea room ...

Situated within a former steam pumping station (now the Museum of Power) The Steam Pump Tea Room provides a unique and charming setting to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or just a pot of tea and cake. 
There's plenty to see here too during your visit - the Museum of Power has lots to offer inside and also provides great scenery and space to wander around the grounds outside.  It takes just 25 minutes to walk along the River Blackwater into the center of Maldon, and with close proximity to Beeleigh Falls  - it's the perfect place to stop in for a well-earned rest.
