lovely alternate tea shop

Loved the choice of teas and cakes ! It was so busy, its popular with locals and visitors. There's more seating upstairs and outside right on the edge of the canal which is nice in the summer.

It could not have been the more perfect stop for three of us who had cycled from Southampton. We arrived on a sunny Sunday in March, and could place our orders at the counter promptly. Excellent food: not only the main fare (club sandwiches, scrambled eggs on a muffin) but also the side salad: fresh, tasty, and full of variety... More

Stopped by this place as we stumbled by it while out walking along the canal, so it is not in the town centre, we had Afternoon tea, great sandwiches and scones were just lovely. It was nice to sit outside and watch the barges on the canal go bye. We will definitely come back again.

The sandwiches here are delicious and drinks served 'properly' Great service and perfect place for people watching. The huge milkshakes looked good.

I run a coffee lounge in Newbury but when I need time off, I head here. It's a lovely location, the staff are fantastic and the prices are reasonable.

This cafe has a god selection of food and drinks, and they are always fresh and tasty. If you can go on a sunny day, and sit outside it is a delight. The service is a bit slow, but they are usually very busy, so you can forgive it. We visit a lot, because it is a favourite.

Great setting right by the canal overlooking a park but the service is so slow! And the cream tea I had was mediocre, saying that I'd probably come back for a coffee when passing simply because of the relaxing setting.

Absolutely love this place! Love the quaint tea cups and pots. Really great breakfast and lunch menus. Lots of cake selection. Best cream tea in town! A very varied selection of teas too. Don't miss the eggs royale for breakfast too :) Babies are made very welcome too which means the world to new mums who want a decent cuppa... More
