Stopped here yesterday for a cuppa, was able to sit outside with the dogs, plenty of room and nice in the sunshine. Reasonable priced very busy and service quick.

Had a lunch here but actually was a sneaky cake. Nice service, lovely tea and the cakes are so good - full of cream and bursting with flavour. Good pies on offer and all looked lovely but the Victoria sponge was great.

We popped in here for a cup of tea and slice of cake. Staff is professional and atmosphere is traditional. Large choice of sweet treats (not all of them look extraordinary). We had the carrot cake and pear flan, nice and tasty.

Outside seating not accessible for wheelchair users due to a large "A" frame notice board blocking access to the seating and entrance door to the shop. A member of staff grudgingly moved the board when asked and was very impolite. This is not the first...More
