Good sized group had high tea just around lunchtime. We felt comfortable and well catered and cared for. A busy little business with lovely old china and wonderful choices of tea in tea pots with cosies and hot water refills if desired. Little nibble bits...More

Had a light lunch here recently. Food delicious, service prompt, ambiance awesome and if you are lucky you will get in their free car park.

Just passing on the way to the War Memorial and couldn't resist popping in to this quaint little cafe. All bone china teacups and mugs, tasty looking sweets & cakes. Coffee was excellent. A change down from the usual buzz, like popping over to Grandma's!
