The Sandwich came with Salad & crisps, the soup with a Bread Roll & Butter. The Sandwich was very tasty, on lovely brown bread. The soup I was told was excellent, & the Butter the best... More

I must recommend the scrambled egg on toast! It is the best I've had! It's always a pleasure to visit this café as the staff are pleasant and the food excellent. Whoever does the baking, top marks!

The food is very good, a limited range as a tea room should have. This is not a fast food joint nor a cafe. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back as it would have been in the Victorian age. Proper crockery and proper top quality tea and coffee, if you like cakes you will like it here. If you... More

This remains a traditional tea room despite the modern music backdrop! ( It would be much more in keeping, in my view, to have music such as Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to give it the proper atmosphere.) That apart, the coffee is very nice and there several varieties to choose from and the cakes are delicious and there are a... More

After speaking to the blonde mid 40's lady, I found that she and her mother make all the food themselves. I was very impressed and when we... More

My wife and I pop in for a traditional tea and cake, what we experienced was sour faced staff who would not be out of place in a TV soap. They looked like they did not want to serve us and looked totally uninterested. We will not be returning.
