Stopped off for tea and coffee whilst driving through the area on a wet day. Fast service, good cream teas, large car park. All in all a good place to stop.

Lovely place nothing too much trouble but how do you mess up a basic like a medium rare steak. Grey all the way through and chewy. Admitted they took it back and had another go but I think they should change their meat supplier as that one was very chewy too but I ate the middle. The peppercorn sauce was... More

Very overrated, service dreadful, all young inexperienced girls who don't know how to make a cup of tea, overpriced too. Tea like dish water, scones like cheap shop bought rubbish. The whole place in need of redecorating and some money investing. The picnic tables wobbled so much they felt unsafe and the sun brolly looked very old and tired too.... More

We always have cream teas while on holiday, especially in New Forest. This place was ok but nothing special. Scones were larger than usual but I don't think they were better than the ones you can buy in the shop. Clotted cream was lovely but we didn't have enough. Most of my coffee was served on the cup's plate due... More

Having whizzed down to the forest to visit a relative, we were really looking forward to a lovely lunch. We ordered the special of salmon fish cakes chips and salad. At nearly £9 we would of expected much better. All was frozen food. A big let down. On the plus side good service and a lovely courtyard garden to sit... More

We always try to find a cream tea when we are away so we visited Burley & were not disappointed with our find. Good value for money, two huge scones either plain, fruit or one of each, large dollop of clotted cream & two types of jam served in mini glass jars. Absolutely delicious & great value for money. Noticed... More

Ponies can be seen munching away on the grass verge beside the car park next to this characterful cafe/restaurant.! Excellent with friendly staff and tasty food. Loos are clean and tidy. A small garden attached where you can enjoy delicious cream teas. Was surprised to find it closed at 5.00pm on a Friday in May though, as there were still... More

We popped in for cream tea to end our wedding weekend. We dint have to wait very long for a table and the service was very prompt. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced. The setting is lovely and cosy with a quaint feel to it.
