We were very lucky to get a table as we didn't book but a family left shortly after we arrived. The staff were very friendly and in the sun the garden had a lovely peaceful atmosphere.

Lovely meal in the garden - birds singing - flowers blooming. Waited a while to get served then realised you have to order inside. No problem though as service etc was good.

Please what is the price for afternoon tea?

Response from DAHopper | Reviewed this property |
I think it was about £13.50 per person but not completely sure. You have to pre-order it too so maybe worth ringing them.

The tea room used to be the Southill Post Office until it was closed down a few years ago. It is a jewel. We pride ourselves on home baked cakes and scones and hope that you enjoy them just as much as we do.
