I had the Coronation Chicken Baked Potato and it was delicious and freshly cooked. To follow I had Victoria sponge which also was very tasty. It was busy, but service was good and quick in the circumstances. I will go again.

With its high ceiling and large windows, this tea room and gallery still looks like the Victorian school building it originally was. Although I'd not been there before, most of my companions had, and they recommended the scones with our afternoon tea. Mine was still...More
