Having chosen the cream tea, I hadn't realised just how big the scones were and was unable to finish it - however the birds appreaciated the leftover scone! The staff were so... More

Nice setting, clean and the tables were well set out and laid with bone china crockery. A varied menu with a selection of home baked cakes, The cream was extremely nice, we needed more cream and jam and this was freely given. Looking forward to having Sunday lunch soon.

What an amazing discovery. We had enjoyed the Brecon steam railway and were driving to the nearby waterfalls. This gem of a place really is in the middle of nowhere. The cream teas were just the best we have ever had and served with proper tea, lovely to have a tea taht required a strainer! Julie and Linda were so... More
