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!

My family and I decided to visit for afternoon tea. We were also celebrating my fathers 82nd birthday. Although the weather outside was miserable and raining and we could not appreciate the lovely gardens, however the ambience inside was warm and welcoming. We were served with an array of warm cheese scones, fruit scones with jam and cream, sandwiches and... More

Absolutely delicious coffee, cakes and shortbread, looking forward to returning to try out the rest of the menu. We sat outside but the inside looked very inviting and had some lovely locally made gifts for sale.
