Traditional English Afternoon tea!

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.

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.

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.

With a wonderful position alongside the canal side this little cafe has a great location. With the weather not being great for our visit we chose to sit indoors and it really is quite a cute place. The young staff provide really good service and a most excellent breakfast was consumed with great pleasure. Very sensible prices and great for... More

The staff here are really friendly and aren't fazed by our complicated gluten-free and dairy-free needs. The vintage China and wide tea selection makes a visit a real treat. Situated on the edge of the canal no trip is complete without feeding the swans. (Food can now be bought by the cup) We love the open salmon sandwich and American... More
