Good quality food and drink at very reasonable prices with a touch of small friendly service, we enjoyed their home made sausage rolls and apple strudel.

Met a friend here for coffee. Friendly staff and a cosy, welcoming atmosphere; coffee was good and the cakes looked delicious ( we didn't sample them ,though) but the high spot for the dog was the cheesy ( yum) doggy ice-cream!

A good place to have a coffee or afternoon tea and then enjoy a walk in the gardens or on the downs. Good selection of drinks and food. A bit cramped inside, and tables outside are in demand when the weather is fine.

we stayed at the hotel and had lunch in the tea rooms, you soon realise that it is set up for dog walkers and as long as you are happy with that you cannot fault the food in this establishment, we will use again.
