I visited here with a few friends half of whom wanted cream teas and the other half wanted savoury snacks. We were disappointed to learn that you are only allowed to order sandwiches and other savoury menu items at lunch times and that other points in the day, even if the cafe is dead they are not prepared to make a sandwich from the menu for you. Having said that, none of the sandwiches on the menu were actually suitable for vegetarians, even the cheese sandwich was offered as a cheese and ham sandwich. I am sure they will make a vegetarian sandwich if you asked them to, but really, should vegetarians in this day and age have to make special requests because they are offered nothing? Being forced down the sweet route I opted for a chocolate fudge cake and thought it best to check that it wouldn't contain gelatine. The waitress was very friendly and went off to check, telling us on her return that it didn't say gelatine on the packet. I was glad that the cake was suitable for vegetarians but not glad to be eating cakes that were not homemade. The scones that my friends had did look homemade but were slightly burnt on top and they had tried to disguise this by sprinkling icing sugar on to them. Overall, a rather disappointing visit.
