We arrived at 10.00 as the tea room opened, we were made to feel very welcome. The service was great and so was the tea cakes we had. There was no rush for us to leave we stayed about 1 1/2 hours without any issues from the staff. Would strongly recommend a visit

You have to know it's here as you'd never ever pass by it.... It's in the Viables Craft Centre and is worth a visit if you're nearby. The cakes are all home made, really scrummy, seats outside and in, and run by lovely friendly ladies.

Visited with the family and had an assortment of tea, scones, sandwiches and cakes. Everyone enjoyed their homemade food and we left full and relaxed. Well worth a visit.

I can only eat wheat free food and the parlour tea room caters for that not only in sandwiches but also cakes. The atmosphere is a cosy tea room with amazing customer service from all the staff. I would highly recommend it for a place to take the family or to meet up with a friend.

Met up with a friend to have some tasty treats and a chat. We booked for 11am and all the cakes and everything was being made as we drank tea and chatted. Lovely atmosphere and great service. My husband and I have been a few times and Carole always treats us like friends. Gradually the tables were filled but we... More

Discovered this delightful little vintage tearoom, set in the lovely location of a craft centre and we were lucky enough to find a table at 1030am. We hadn't booked, so the waitress explained that we would need to be on our way by about mid-day which was fine. Resisted the almost irresistible salted caramel cupcakes (tried to save a few...

The first couple of times we tried to get in, we were turned away as we hadn't booked. Now we book and eat here regularly and I have to say that the food is very pleasant, especially the roasted vegetable and hummus sandwich! It gets very busy at lunchtimes so I would always suggest you book, although sitting outside if... More
