Great views

This is s popular place for a snack or a meal. It can get very busy at weekends and in the summer. Situated in a colourful with great views across the bay, this is a good place to stop and rest. The cake portions are generous and packed with sugar ,,, great to share but easy to over do it!

Warming up on a cool May lunchtime, we headed here for lunch and a famous slice of cake. What did we get? A lovely lunch and service that went above and beyond. We ordered four toasted sandwiches and a kids fish and chips. When the food arrived it was delicious but a mix up in the kitchen left two people... More

Situated amongst the delightful fragrance of award winning border plants these tea rooms offer a wonderful range of home cooked style foods.

The place was very busy on a weekday in May and tables outside or in the conservatory were not to be had. I suggest you choose what you want before you go to the counter as there is a wide choice from sandwiches through to main courses at £14. We ordered at the counter but others seemed to order from...

Whether you have coffee on a table close to the Arch or upstairs above the tearooms the views are spectacular. We had our first coffee upstairs and my wife didn't fancy taking the coffee up the twisting staircase but the waitress immediately offered to carry the tray. Very helpful, cheerful and efficient staff. Why did I repeat Location three times... More

Hot food stops at 2.30 but tables can be booked before this. Food is excellent and service was reasonably fast. Never seen cakes like it and although it's value for money the portions are a little overwhelming.

Good coffee but the various cakes were exceptional. Our sticky flapjack must be worth a second visit on its own.

I can honestly say this was the best Ploughmans we have ever had, the plates were the size of a tea tray and filled with food. Coleslaw was divine. Looking at all the other food that was being brought out I would say that no matter what you chose form the menu ( which was extensive) you will enjoy it.... More

How this little place manages to create such good hot food and cakes is incredible. The staff are always so helpful. The menu is vast. It does get busy at weekends and on sunny days, because it's so good- so I suggest booking ahead- rather than writing a grumpy review here!
