Nice place and friendly staff but quiche was cold and soggy, tea bisquit spongy and it tasted like yesterday's lettuce in the salad. Coffee was very nice and wide selection of teas. Server tried way too hard to sell dessert. Not going back.

Good wholesome ingredients and attention to details. Great flavours at a reasonable price. The selection of teas is wonderful, and dessert is divine.

This is one of the most charming venues in Peterborough; several eating areas in a lovely old house. Tables are adorned with traditional linens and Grandma's bone china cups and saucers. The tea menu is awesome and tea is seved in a china teapot complete with infusion timer and individual cup strainer. The lunch menu is incredible and mouth-wateringly delish!... More

We went here for lunch the other day. It's like a house made into resturant. Very nice. Lots of different really good teas. The food was also very good. The cheesecake was awesome as was the service. Can't wait unitil I have the opportunity to return.
