scones are gorgeous

Beautifully located in the people's park, very nice old time feel to it and nice airy space to sit down with the family and have a treat. Good selections of cakes and biscuits, the scones are gorgeous well worth the money.

Visited the lodge for breakfast with my son. Surroundings are very nice and they have the most incredible display of cakes and buns that you will find anywhere. Lovely atmosphere for a chilled out morning.

Goes to show this is a simple, straight forward, efficient, well... More

Hi Mary,for many years we did serve our wraps with a side salad & dressing. We found a lot of people don't eat this salad even though it was prepared fresh each time. When you are in the next time tell the staff that you would prefer a side salad as we already do this for customers for the same... More

Good quality coffee and cakes. Cramped space for indoor seating makes it difficult to relax over lunch.
