Found this totally by chance, but so glad we did. The location, atmosphere, food and service are all delightful. Can thoroughly recommend the sandwiches, and was pleased to have such wide choice.

It is out of the way but a traditional tea room with great tea and scones and cakes you could fall into, it is a lovely place to have a rest and refuel before searching out more things in... More
