Nice cup of tea with a generous slice of Dorset Apple Cake made next door by hand. No airmiles or fancy packaging, just honest to goodness flavour!

Being a bit of a scone connoisseur, we have just had 4 lovely cream teas, the scones were fresh out of the oven and slightly warm we delicious. Looking at the homemade meals going out to the customers it all looks rather nice, and lovely polite staff

We visited here last week for a breakfast. Clean and tidy with welcoming and friendly staff. The breakfast was yummy and the staff were accommodating to my switching of items! Reasonable prices too. Will visit again when we return to Weymouth.

This place looks really nice from the outside, but don't be deceived as it is more like a canteen on the inside and not a 'tea room'. Got in and seated and then realised that although they have waitresses you have to go to the back of the rooms and queue up to order at the 'bar'...What is that all... More

Stopped for tea and a Portland Crab sandwich. All very good and the staff were efficient and friendly. Only irritation is that you have to queue at bar at the back to order and pay for food uofront. The man taking the orders also serves cake to those that want it. It can add up to a fair old wait.... More

Had breakfast, egg on toast - the toast was soggy and unpleasant - this is not a cheap place so felt it was poor value for money.

We stopped here to have lunch on a lovely early spring Sunday - we opted for the vegetarian lasagne which was one of the nicest we have ever tasted! The café was clean and well furnished, with a lovely outside area which will be nice when the weather is warmer! The service is excellent with very friendly staff, and a... More
