We had one of the best cream teas we'd ever had here and a view too .. bonus. If you ever visit this beautiful village the tea shop is a must. The staff are also lovely.

Great selection of cakes - have made it a 'must' stop whenever I am near the Square. Beautiful views of the Castle. A slice of Dorset Cake goes down a treat with a cup of tea.
