This is a really sweet little place, with lots of character and perfect for a place like the New Forest. In some ways, just what you're looking for. Service wasn't great, they took a while to notice us, which led us to believe we ordered at the till. This probably would have been a better system as when it came... More

We found this place, and as the weather so good sat outside in garden and it was rather lovely. We had tea and cheesy scones. It is set out like it is indoors with a fake fireplace and easy chairs.

We dropped in for a cream tea on a sunny afternoon. The setting is a lovely, secluded garden and the food was good, but it's let down by the service. Our table still had the previous customers' crumbs on it. Staff were slow to take our order. The tea then arrived, but no scones and we had to remind them.... More

We went on a sunny Sunday afternoon at 4.45pm after some delay we did get served the pot of tea was lovely, however the cake was over sweet and jam and icing not good for the money.

Absolutely loved the uniqueness of this place. Lovely setting and ambience and a great place to enjoy a cream tea and relax, very Cath Kidston eque and good, friendly service. We had cream teas and they were delicious, great fun and very pleasant place to relax and slip back in time a little bit.

This is a secret garden - quirky, fun and ideal for our lunch. Huge doorstop sandwiches, lovely cider and cake to finish it off. Friendly and efficient staff. Lovely atmosphere in the heart of the village, but tucked away and private. Really lovely lunch time - fresh ingredients and excellent service - what more could you ask for? Will be... More

We visited recently for lunch. The setting is charming, a lovely garden with a large marquee, quirkily decorated. The waiting staff are very nice and very friendly but let themselves and the venue down with very basic errors in service. I ordered a whole lobster served with asparagus, samphire, salad and new potatoes. My daughter and I were going to... More
