“ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS CREAM TEA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I went for a cream tea today for 2 with my friend. The experience was truly wonderful. the shop is quaint and full of quirky items. Wendi could not be more accommodating. The cream tea portion was so large I missed breakfast and lunch. The scones were freshly baked and the jams were home made and wendi offered us an extra option of apricot or pineapple jam. This place is a hidden treasure and I will be sure to return for a full afternoon tea. The atmosphere is relaxed and non commercialised like most places so you feel you can sit for a long period. would highly recommend this place. It is also very good value for money.

“You've just got to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Had another excellent afternoon tea, twice within the space of one week. First time was with my sister in law and my niece, had a fantastic time, variety, amount and flavour of all the food is just out of this world. Atmosphere is so relaxed, both Wendi and Audrey can't do enough to ensure you have a good time. Then this afternoon was yet again afternoon tea this time with friends, place was much busier today yet the quality if the food and service didn't diminish. Can't think of any other place I'd go to now for a great cuppa/cake and atmosphere to spend time catching up with friends. And their cupcakes are simply fabulous!

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

My daughter and I went here after purchasing a voucher for an afternoon tea....it was delicious. Wendi was welcoming and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. It was Sunday and we had the place to ourselves. After bringing us a pot of coffee and a pot of tea we were presented with a cake stand full of sandwiches and cakes galore. On a separate plate was pate and crackers with salad and as we tucked in Wendi came over with our heated scones served with a choice of raspberry or strawberry jam and cream. A glass of bubbly topped it of. We were offered as much tea/coffee as we wanted and spent a relaxing afternoon . We travelled all the way from Ayrshire and would like to return at some point in the future for a cream tea...the scones were yummy.
Oh and by the way we managed to find our way home...eventually Wendi!

“Out of this world and more!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Cupcakes for you provided an excellent and outstanding service for our wedding. We had a variety of hundreds of cupcakes shaped as roses in our colour scheme and all different flavours! Our guests still talk about these delicious cakes and what a fabulous display they were. Wendi and Wullie are amazing people who truely provide an excellent service and more. I had bought(off another company) mini people resembling our family to go on top of our display. When openening the package I broke the leg off 1 of our sons :-o Wendi calmed me down and took the challage on board to fix the leg. Im sure this isnt in her job description but what an amazing job she done. I still pop through to the shop and grab plenty of cupcakes and more. I recommend you pop down and see and taste for your self. Just out of this world. Xxx

“Cosy and friendly tea and cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

"Compact and Bijou" would certainly describe this tea and cakes establishment as it only has about four tables. The cosy and friendly environment adds to the personal charm of the tearoom. It has a 1940's 'retro' feel with genuine radiograms playing music from the Ratpack and others. There are even 1940's /50's magazines to read! We have been twice now and plan to go again next week and I am sure there will be many trips to follow. You always get personal attention from Wendi, the owner, and she adapts her offerings to suit your taste. There is a great variety of cupcakes and other home baking, all made by hand by Wendi. Everything we had with our afternoon tea tasted beautiful, including the home-made tablet. There is also a wide variety of tea on offer, with as many pots as you like. You can even try out a variety of different teas. They are now running a loyalty card service and if you provide your email address, Wendi will send you details of her latest special offers. Well worth a visit - and you may become a fan, like me!
