I took 3 friends there for high tea. The soup and sandwiches were very good, but the Devon shire Clotted Cream was out of a small container. I thought $130 was a little pricey for what was served.

The food is really amazing. The owner grows her own herbs and makes everything fresh. I had the tomato soup and it was delicious. It's really hard to find a place that actually makes everything from scratch. The owner was happy to give us a...More
