Lovely staff, excellent fresh food, wonderful-looking homemade cakes and a 5-star hygiene rating - the place was spotlessly clean. The tearoom itself is a modern building but the interior decor is country style and a... read more

Upon entering the tea room, we were welcomed by the most charming gentleman. Two pots of tea, a panini and jacket potatoe later I am delighted to confirm that the food was... More

This little gem of a place is all too easy to pass by, but when you do decide to go down the lane off the main road - well what a find! We were recommended to this tea room by a friend and decided to go there for a Bank Holiday light lunch. The people are so friendly and the... More

We go to this tearoom quite frequently. The food is all home made and very good value. After a light lunch we always have one Carol's delicious cakes. An altogether enjoyable experience.

This is a wonderful, friendly tearoom. The service is outstanding and the food is all homemade and delicious - the cheese scones in particular are absolutely divine! They are very kind to all and nothing is too much trouble. It's well worth a visit - we keep going back.

Stopped here for tea and cake and it was superb. Cakes were once and fresh, service prompt and polite. Couldn't ask for more from such a small place!

Lovely little place, beautiful surroundings, food was lovely and fresh, the owners were do friendly as was the member of staff nothing was too much trouble. Well worth a visit, take extra money as they have some lovely things to buy too.
