Fantastic home made cakes

This was our first visit to the tea rooms, but certainly won't be our last! We had the Farmers Tea and it was exceptional value for money. The home made cakes were to die for. We found the hardest part of our experience was choosing which cake to have. The service was excellent and the staff very... read more

Came for cup of coffee. The only words coming out of the staff were "Business is good, you have to make a reservation". Wasnt sure if they are serious. Sadly they were. Wont put up with that kind of rudeness. If you dont know how to treat polite customers, go clean toilets. Then you dont have to deal with people.... More

Yet another spur of the moment visit, this time to celebrate some GCSE results. Great paninis all round (very tasty) followed by coffee cake (scrumptious) and plenty of tea. If you want really well cooked tea room fair, then look no further. We#ll be back again soon.

Came for the first time one day this week only to find out the place was closed. Thought it was highly unprofessional. Should have stayed away. Gave it another chance the day after. What followed was substandard, unthinkable and inadequate. There were free tables outside, I only had 15 - 20 mins to spare and just wanted a coffee. Old... More

Visited this place last Saturday as a birthday treat, we managed to get a table straight away although they do recommend phoning and booking as they get very busy. We had farmers cream tea for about £10.50 each. This included sandwiches of your choice, freshly baked scones with clotted cream & jam & a slice of cake with plenty to... More

Top place very nice staff and very friendly. The tea was excellent. And the cakes were very nice and fresh. Carol who served me I believe she owns the tearoom was very perlite and a nice lady. I will be coming back soon spot on 5stars.
