Stopped in here after a family visit to the Wildlife Park, which is five minutes walk away. The garden at the back was a nice spot for lunch with a toddler. Tea and sandwiches were freshly prepared to order, and the cakes were tasty too....More

Always a nice cake , normally a couple of gluten free choices! If you want a soya coffee, they can oblige, you just pay for a small carton and take it home... Perfect

Always good to read that the gluten free cakes are appreciated. Out of interest, our range of sandwiches are also available with gluten free bread. Thank you for promoting our business.

I am sorry to say that Teacake is housed in a very old listed building and we do not have a disabled toilet.
