We came here for lunch and had a sandwich each and shared a cream tea. The food was delicious but the home made scones were out of this world. Excellent host and value for money. We will return.

I stumbled across this place and had a lovely welcome as I walked in, the courtyard is lovely and service was Tres Bon! Food quality was great, just the area I needed to do a few emails and chill out.

Sorry I have been away on holiday. The Tearooms do a lovely take away service, cakes, scones and just about anything else that you may like to order. Including lunch.

Hi. We have gluten free brownies and sometimes a second cake too. Also gluten free crumpets, fruited tea loaf, and gluten free bread. We do not have gluten free scones. We look forward to your visit.
