After having been for a long walk, spotted this place on the way home. We were given a warm welcome. The soup was lovely followed by crumble and custard. My other half had the Welsh. How he had room for a scone after I don't know. We really enjoyed the food and the staff were lovely too. I thought it... More

Afternoon tea here was a seriously unpleasant experience. We were served a very tired scone, overly sweet banana cake, not so much moist as soggy, both accompanied by clotted cream which was most definitely "on the turn". A pot of tea for two, clearly made with cheap teabags, was weak beyond redemption despite vigorous "mashing". Both our cups were chipped.... More

We stopped here as it suddenly appeared at the side of the road, at an opportune time, and you know how difficult it is in the UK to find quality roadside refreshment. We were greeted and seated in a very friendly manner and ordered coffees and fruit bread. Everything was excellent and the owner was very friendly. Accommodation is fairly... More

Visited here on Tuesday this week, meeting someone for lunch. I had read the reviews & was slightly worried that we would meet rudeness - this was not the case. We were welcomed warmly, given a good table & chose a ploughman lunch & a toasty sandwich with one cold drink & one hot. THE BILL CAME TO £19. Lovely... More

Visited today with my husband, was very busy but we were greated warmly and seated within 5 minutes. We had a cream tea which was delicious. Decorated beautifully and the music playing was perfect. We will be returning very soon.
