I am a regular visitor to Flynn's, and decided to pop in this afternoon 22/5/15. We decided to have a cream tea and sit outside. It was so beautiful, to be sitting there in the lovely warm sunshine, it was so peaceful with just the sound of the birds singing. I had to force myself to leave. Such a lovely... More

Had a cream tea this afternoon. Fantastic light, moist scones with clotted cream and some very tasty honey. Tried both ginger honey and cinnamon honey, very tasty and morish! Stopped off at their little shop and bought some honey to bring home, Sudi was very helpful and friendly, as were the waitress and chef. Can't wait to go back

We had a visit to the bee farm and tea room. Was so quaint and tea was served in bone china. Service was really slow. We waited 30 minutes for cake and crumpets. But wouldnt have been too much of an issue if we didnt have a three year old with us. We all know 3 year olds, bone china... More

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
