We called in for a snack and wasn't disappointed. Staff were friendly and cheerful on what was a dull and overcast day. The Hut itself was warm and welcoming. Food was freshly prepared and tasty. We each indulged in a slice of cake and were very impressed with the quality. The orange and almond cake was particularly good. All round... More

It's about 100 yards to the river and set next to the boating pond. The tea and coffee are superb as are the different types of pastries and sandwiches. It's a beautiful location... More

Mid-week afternoon visit for coffee and cake. Friendly staff, but the cake was a bit dry and the coffee was okay rather than great. Good location close to the river, although not with river views. We sat outside on the deck. So, okay overall, and there are a lot worse around, but perhaps did not match expectation of #1 rated... More

A very pleasant place to have a break and a coffee, especially on a nice day on the outside deck. Unfortunately the coffee was very weak indeed. I hope this failing is rectified ASAP.
