Not disappointed

Stopped off at Southill for a late "elevenses" whilst out for a cycle ride today and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my "breakfast in a bun" and the very generous slice of Lemon Drizzle cake (with buttercream filling).. Well done ladies!

I bought my mum for afternoon tea for the second time and it was not disappointing. It is the perfect vintage tea room with mismatched furniture and China. The selection of tea is good and it is always served in a pot. The afternoon tea itself was lovely, a selection of sandwiches - tuna mayo & cucumber, cheese & pickle,... More

Lovely breakfast and coffee served here today - yes is bit squashed inside but worth it. Also they stock very reasonably priced and unusual cards and gifts - definitely worth a visit. If I go with larger group will definitely book.

Lovely little spot .... and unbelievable it is best to book! Good value, tucked away and I love it! Just loses one dot as the tables are tight and everybody has to move to let someone out!

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Cute and cosy are part the charm that makes us so popular. We are sorry there has to be some shifting but if we were any bigger we would lose our cuteness. More

We had booked a table but arrived slightly early but were able to sit in a window area which was like a snug! We were offered a drink and shortly afterwards our afternoon tea arrived. The sandwiches were very fresh and the scones were lovely, we could not find room for the cakes and took them home in paper bags... More

We visited here for afternoon tea to celebrate my Mother in Law's birthday with afternoon tea. One of the party wanted a gluten free option - which was available by pre booking (in fact, afternoon tea has to be pre booked). Let me start by saying something positive! The location is nice - out in the countryside. The gardens looked... More

Yummy! We will definitely be back. We turned up after reading reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. A number of tables had been booked so I would suggest booking if you know you are going in advance. Large garden out the front with plenty of tables. Good selection of sandwiches that were delicious as were the scones and... More
