The tea room looked so inviting that we couldn't go by without calling in! Decor and atmosphere lovely. Waitresses very smart, professional and friendly! The tea room is spotless. Seating downstairs and upstairs. We had morning coffee - black filter coffee and 2 medium lattes cost around £6.00. We didn't have anything to eat but I am sure the food... More

My wife and I visited this cafe a few days ago and were disappointed by the very average food (frozen baguette squashed and toasted doesn't really cut it as a panini, massed of roughly chopped lettuce and badly cleaned crockery, we expected China cups etc but alas we only got a cheap pottery version.
