We came here on Trip Advisor reviews. We were certainly not disappointed.
Great cakes and enormous scones with jam and cream enjoyed. However the scones are bulk cellophane wrapped and finished off in the oven. This I noticed whilst waiting for the loo. The jam is chefs larder spooned out of a tub. Not quite what I expected from such a pretty establishment. A bit of locally made would have tasted better.
The setting is delightful and the pianist really sets the tone. My mother and I were the only ones to applaud and were amazed to see no one else joined us in appreciation of him!
One note to the short haired mature blonde lady behind the counter.. As a customer it's usually better to be greeted with a smile before demanding my table number! She practically barked at me before taking my order! I'm sure you know your job and need efficiency but manners please.
It's very clean and the setting is lovely but a lot of the atmosphere comes from the pianist. We came back twice just for this. A most enjoyable hour but counter lady rather miserable.
