Myself and my partner arrived for a pre booked afternoon tea,as a treat because she loves Alice in wonder land.The overall experience was excellent and well worth a visit.I would recommend pre booking as three groups of people were waiting to be seated.

My wife and I visited for an afternoon cup of tea and a cake. The range of cakes wasn't extensive with either cup cakes or tray bakes to choose from. However the cup cake and Rocky Road slice we had were excellent and none too small either. Service was good and the place was clean and welcoming.

Enjoyed home made soup and other delights in this really pleasant cafe. Service was good and themed decor well thought out. Particularly good for Alice in Wonderland fans. Nice collection of gifts for sale too.

Alice in wonderland themed tearoom. Beautiful decor and food, and amazing cakes! Nothing was to much for the staff who were very friendly and welcoming. A great little find!

Local establishment . That caters to locals with good local food. Hatter themed throughout with lots of little details and careful and thoughtful staff, with a yummy kippers breakfast and gingerbread coffee.

Great atmosphere and decor that hold the Alice in Wonderland theme really well. Really great food - soup and a sandwich for £6.50 I think and tea and scones for £6. Really good portion sizes and sell teas, tea pots etc.

We went here for a spot of lunch, only problem was we did not book and had a 10 to 15 minute wait for a table so I would recommend you book a table if you don't want to wait at busy times. We were seated the menu is very good some lovely teas. I had soup and a sandwich... More
