It's all about the timing!

What a pleasant little place this is. We love the old fashioned post war theme right down to the chipped metal teapots. Having been once in the past, we took my mum who uses a wheelchair there for tea and cake. Our timing was perfect, no one else was waiting to be seated and there was plenty of... read more

We placed an order 10 days ago for 3 whole cakes and were quoted £65 - I've seen it written in their order book. Have gone to collect them tonight only to be told that the price was £95. Obviously this is a noticeable difference. I'm then told that my options are to either pay it or have 1 less... More

A very traditional cake-shop-come-cafe that takes its name from the 9 hole golf course it backs on to. Always has a large selection of cakes that appear to be home made or at least baked on the premise, some of which are very good. The drawback is that the prime seafront location and its decent fair is that there is... More

We finally made it to the tenth hole today for lunch. You are taken to your seats from the gate and we decided to sit outside. I ordered the chilli chicken sandwich and an iced coffee (nice and strong), the drinks arrived quickly. The sandwiches arrived shortly after and were made with doorstep crusty fresh bread, lovely. We will return... More

It was very busy on the Saturday lunch time we came, but the queue to get a table moved very quickly and the service was efficient. The food was all great, the coffee excellent and the cakes extremely tempting! A very nice, popular, family friendly place that I'll come back to, especially to try their breakfast.

We often visit this little gem with our 2 dogs who are always made to feel very welcome ( dog treats and bowls are provided ) The waiting staff and very polite young ladies / men . Cake is about £4 but totally worth it. Never been disappointed!

I visited with my family one Sunday for brunch, we were seated quickly even though it was busy. The girl who seated us was friendly and helpful and offered to bring a high chair over for my son. I was very pleased to find they had a vegan cake option! There is so much variety and really something for everyone,... More

Delicious cakes! Im a repeat customer and I always look to go back when I'm in the area. You get great value and great service. Only issue is it gets very busy so it's hard to get a table but that just shows how good it is :)

This place used to be amazing so I'm not sure what's happened to it. Patronising staff. Luke warm tea. Cold bacon sandwich & cheap frozen fish fingers for the fish finger sandwich. Very disappointing indeed. Also there was a young chap walking round refilling cutlery buckets which you might think is good but not when he's leaning over people trying... More
