I have visited twice to attend workshops run at the back of the establishment. On both occasions there was a warm welcome from the cafe owner, within a few minutes of entering (at 9.30) other customers (not on the workshops) came in, may have been school drop off mums, at lunch time the cafe was buzzing, on the first occasion...

I often ran past Lillypie when I was training for the marathon last year and wanted to go. Today, I have finally got around to visiting. The cake and coffee alone was enough to make you want to come back! My parents are extremely hard to please as they love their coffee and like to cook however, they commented on... More

What a shame. Last time I came was bustling and had crafts and beautiful furniture paint- all gone. Agree with previous reviewer in that deathly quiet. Extremely slow service and all staff were concerned with was the group booking for afternoon tea-get more staff or set up earlier as tables reserved!!. Plain white cups used (despite having a cabinet full... More

Staff member seemed very negative taking telephone calls whilst we ate responding to them negatively and was heard to mutter negatively under her breath after one... More

After wanting to visit the cafe for a while, myself and my family popped in. Staff were friendly and welcoming, however not as attentive as we'd expect. We were given menus quickly and had our drinks order taken swiftly, but were a while with our lunch orders. Menu is limited but good value. Food was tasty, but the paninis would... More

Lovely little cafe, came here to do one of the many craft courses that are available. Warm welcome from all the staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the soap making course which was followed by a cream tea. A great morning out, with good company & delicious homemade cakes. Would definitely recommend the cafe if you fancy a coffee & cake or if... More

Me and my mother went here after visiting the local farmers market for a light lunch. We arrived and was looking forward to a simple sandwich and a pot of tea. There was not a lot of option to choose from in fact it was cheese toastie or well not a lot else fresh. We thought a cheese toastie would... More

We opened Lilypie under new management on September 7th so I cannot comment on your experience in May but nonetheless it is saddening to see anything less than a positive review. We'd love you to come back, meet the new team and let us show you what WE do. All the best. Claire More

This is a quaint tearoom serving light bites. Quiches, soup, salads etc and homemade cakes! Very pleasant with a drinks licence. There are various trinkets for sale too. The staff are friendly and service good.
