Thank you for your kind review, and so sorry that you had to wait half an hour for your order. Unfortunately you came in at the same time as two birthday teas, both were big orders, they had booked, and they had to take priority over your order, because you had not booked. There were some crayons and colouring sheets... More

Arrived today at 11.15 for a cream tea with bottomless tea. My friend and I put the work to rights and before we knew it, it was 13.50. Ordered lunch which was beef casserole. Food lovely, location beautiful, completely relaxed atmosphere with no rushing us out of the door. Thank you

We found this place on TripAdvisor whilst wandering around Sheppey and were pleasantly surprised. Kind of set up to eat outside really, so ideal in good weather. I had a cinnamon and honey latte, which was delicious. You should definitely go there if you've ever on the island!
