This is a rather beautifully laid out tea room with a lovely walled garden to sit in. Large variety of teas and coffees.

Visited with 2 young children and had a brilliant time, 2 staff members couldn't be more helpful. Lovely setting, boys painted their plates then played in the play area. Good value and the chocolate cake was yummy!
