Cream tea was awesome!

I've never had cream tea before, but this was an excellent first experience! The scones were delightful, and there was a nice selection of teas. The clotted cream was amazing (as usual) and the jam was perfect. Pop in if you're nearby!!

The salads are fresh & deliciously prepared & you can add plenty of protein sources. The breads & pastries are unbelievably good! Only down side is they close late afternoon.

We went three times for lunch during the literature festival and it was perfect. Cosy seating, delightful staff and yummy food. The Honey Pot is ahead of the game in catering for dietary requirements as there is always one soup that is gluten free and dairy free and they are able to provide a vegan spread and gluten-free bread if...

We would definitely go here more but so many times we walk by and it's packed - and for good reason. The food is priced affordably and it's fresh and delicious. My favourite being the dhal. The cakes are lovely and the staff are friendly.

We come here everytime we're in pz. The curries are to die for. Everything is beautifully cooked and presented. Priced reasonably, and above average portion sizes. The veggie options are incredible!

Tea and cakes at The Honey Pot was quite enjoyable. Great variety of very eye-catching cakes. I had the walnut coffee iced cake. Large slice, very intense flavor, tasty! The place is cute as bug. Service, not so great. But definitely worth a visit.

Such a surprising & delicious treat! So hard to decide for a quick lunch, but ordered the crisp bacon, Brie, & cranberry sandwich on whole wheat..large enough for 2. My husband had the mozzarella, sun dried tomato sandwich & we each tried the other half of our sandwiches. Came with wonderfully fresh small salad. Bought some freshly made chocolate (one... More
