Delightful place and a very good cream tea, with choice of either plain or fruit scones. We sat outside though, partly because of a large vanilla scented candle (blurgh), partly it was full of families with kids and buggies.

Went in last Sunday for Church cafe and a Flutter Nutter Brownie hadn't long been put out, so of course I had to try a piece. It was amazing! Delicious brownie with peanut butter and marshmallows on top covered with chocolate. Great atmosphere and lovely staff.

Cosy café in the park and friendly staff. Just had coffee but the food looked nice. Only downside, we had a couple of screaming children on a Sunday afternoon so maybe not the best option if you want to avoid them. I would still go back to try some of the food!

Encouraged by very good reviews and recommendations. Reception was slightly unwelcoming. We were then a little confused if there was a menu or just blackboard list. Blackboard stated our preferred dish was unavailable! Having got off to a poor start, Ordering at the counter was then a little prolonged as the 'computer tab' found amendments to menu difficult to handle.... More

We only went in for coffee and cake. The coffee was very good, but the cake was excellent. Firstly, it was really delicious and still warm from the oven! Even the best cafe's often buy in their cakes, but here they make them themselves. In fact the girl who had just baked it came out to ask our opinion of... More

Had the most wonderful cream tea after helping out with the beach clean in that area and discovered this place prior to going down - it was busy being a pleasant warm day at the end of October - surroundings were great and I imagine this place would be wonderful in the summer when you can use the tables outside...

Well worth a visit, not just for the cream teas but also the variety of home made cakes. They also do a good selection of sandwiches and specials. My favourite scone is honey and lavender but they also do a selection of others. They don't skimp with the cream and jam, like some!

I met a friend for coffee. The staff are friendly. The coffee was good, and a reasonable price. The place is small, but you can sit outside if you wish, in the delightful Manor Gardens.

Thank Chris F
