Between 1803 and 1806 the architects John White & Sons drew plans for improvements of Buxton which included The Square - designed as a group of lodging houses.
No. 6 is most notable as the house occupied by Buxton's most eminent medical specialist, Dr. William Henry Robertson (1810-1897) who lived and had consulting rooms here for more than 35 years. He lived in 3 different houses in The Square but by 1861 was living and practising at No. 6 where he remained until his death in 1897.
Whilst you are enjoying refreshment at No. 6 try to cast your mind back to those slower days of the Regency and later Victorian Spa.
Louise Potter has owned the tearooms since 2001.
