Friendly little tea room, with a tasty, if simple, lunch menu. Yummy cakes. Also sell tasteful gifts and cards. Delightful little garden and friendly quick service.

Excellent kids club pottery group, with the added bonus of wonderful cinnamon latte and delicious cakes served in the cafe, Very inspiring for children, there's virtually no limits to what they can make, My 6 year old absolutely loves going to Pottery
