Description: This is a cafe combined with an art gallery, shopfront for local artists and swcond hand book shop. The food is simple but well prepared with a huge range of teas. The art is reasonably priced and good quality second handbooks very cheap. Lovely setting as it is a converted old house so each room is a themed sitting area for the cafe.

My husband and I enjoyed a great cuppa here one morning. With outdoor tables & chairs set under a few large trees.... it was a lovely place to watch the world pass by, while having a coffee. Friendly staff added to the experience

For good food and service with a smile you can't go past The Tea Tree Gallery. So many interesting rooms to sit in and they all have had an update. The service counter is straight down the hall and to the right, so easy to order. The food is delightful and different. And the coffee, most importantly, is fantastic!

This was our first time at the Cafe. We loved it so much we went back everyday whilst on holidays. The coffee is great and the breakfasts even better. They know how to cook poached eggs...runny yolk. The cafe is situated in an old house and is a gallery. Really quaint and lots of rooms to discover. There are tables... More

Walked in the front door and got confused as to where I had to go to make an order. The place is set out like a house with seperate rooms and the service counter is at the back. There were hardly any tables that had been cleared from previous customers. I stood at counter and waited over 15 minutes before... More

My friends & I often visit-or rather, revisit, this local homely "tea rooms/art gallery" as it is so nice (with such friendly hosts) we just keep coming back! The menu is simple (not too many items that you get confused trying to order!) but not plain by any means. If you are looking for something a little unusual/different from the... More

Quaint eateries... service not so good... two very young staff, more interested in discussing their weekend exploits than service.... Perhaps some barista lessons would be an advantage as well as customer service....
