We went as part of a gift for my mum. For the most part it was brilliant. The girls serving us were polite and helpful. The food was amazing and the cake was incredible! It's just a shame that one member member of staff let them down a tiny bit by being a bit short with us. We had a... More

It was the first time I had heard of it - often the case when it is within 20 minutes walk from home on the other side of town, Parking was full on the hard surface but plenty of room on the grass extension...

I know that you should realy book to eat in this wonderful place, but I popped in on the off chance of getting a table, and lucky me they had one. The service was wonderful. Sandwich and cakes delicious. Fist time I had taken my cousin and she was very impressed. Keep up the great work.

First visit today after admiring via Facebook for some time - amazing! Had the farmers tea and it was lovely, I had a simple cheese and chutney sandwich on wholemeal but it was lovely, freshly made and filled to perfection. The lemon drizzle cake was yummy, so light and tasty. There was copious amounts of tea and excellent service. Now... More
