Visited for afternoon tea (Voucher used/xmas present).

This eatery needs decorating throughout, disappointed.

Never been before mixed reviews her but for us it was excellent. Lovely staff great cakes, sandwiches and scones. We had a voucher for two which with just an extra £1 allowed us to take home 4 huge cakes! Marvellous. Lovely server too.

I ordered a Mango & Blackcurrant mousse cake for a party at work, it turned out to be an absolute hit, everyone loved it, as it was very fresh and fruity, and with the right balance of sweet and sour flavours. The service was excellent,...More
