Exactly what you want from a tea room in a lovely village. The decor is very pretty and the crockery is delicate. We had lunch and it was lovely,I had a large cheese scone with chutney and it was delicious. Worth a visit after a country walk

This tea room is small but charming in the old fashion way. It serves breakfast, lunch and "fab" afternoon teas. In the summer you can sit in the garden. the menu is small and the food is freshly prepared for you and the home made cakes are delicious. This tea room is a step back in time.

We dropped in for a cup of tea on the afternoon of Valentine's day, and noted that they also did scones. I don't expect to be offered a choice of five different types of scone.... I don't expect one of them to be cheese (as a diabetic, this is very welcome), and I certainly didn't expect their idea of "with... More

Really pleasant place to have a tea or coffee in china cups and saucers. Nice cakes too. Also has gifts you can buy and a small shop for groceries. Not very big inside.

I recently visited the tea rooms on recommendation and was not disappointed at all. My friend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch in this country tearoom setting. The staff were so welcoming and friendly, the food was delicious, we will visit again soon.

These tearooms were recommended by previous visitors to a cottage we were staying in so we thought we would give them a go - boy oh boy were they worth the walk! The cream tea was delicious with a very generous scone and more than enough cream and jam. My son was particularly enamored with the chocolate cake. The pots... More

Visited the tea room on a quiet Sunday and it was lovely! All of the staff were so friendly polite. The chocolate cake I had was delicious and will defiantly venture back out with lots of friends soon! Love the look of the room as well, along with the shop!

I have been here numerous times in the past few weeks after a friends recommendation. The tearoom has a lovely country kitchen feel with proper table clothes and China cups and saucers. The service is always efficient and friendly. There is plently to choose from such as sandwiches, bacon/sausage/egg cobs, jacket potatoes, soups, toasted teacakes, toast, scones and cakes. As...
