“My favourite place for a cream tea!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Cannot believe the bad comments about this cafe! My fiance and I visit this cafe whenever we have a spare afternoon. Lovely pot of tea and the best scones I have ever had. We are always welcomed in by the very pleasant owner to sit infront of the real fire. Actually he couldnt be nicer, very friendly, very polite, and always has a spare ice cream cone to give to my dog!! ( dogs allowed in the cafe- brilliant! ) ignore the negative comments, this cafe is well worth a visit!

“spot on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

i visit this tea room/craft shop on a regular basis, its nice not to be cluttered with push chairs and screaming out of control unruly kids. Well behaved dogs are wellcome.
As for the food, you will not get a better bacon sandwich its well presented and very tasty.
The owner and staff are more than wellcoming and always have time to chat.
Its a wonderfull place but please keep those parambulators in the car park and the kids on a leash.

“Aggressive and rather nasty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Went in here recently with some relatives who were on holiday - I have never encountered such hostility to pensioners and pushchairs. We were spending £60 between the 5 of us but we were told we were not welcome as we were taking up too much room.We objected to his nasty manner and he just became more abusive. We asked for a refund and left. It completely spoilt our day and left us feeling very upset and also mystified - why would someone with such a bad attitude want to run a cafe?

Aggressive and rather nasty ? Well, I suppose that sums up my response too.

“Awful. Aggressive manager!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Please do not eat here if you have children. The Manager is incredibly rude and aggressive and obviously does not want customers with little ones - even if they are very well behaved!Stay clear!

“A reliable stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We always stop here for refreshments when we are walking around Monsal Head at weekends. Pricey but friendly, very clean and good food and drinks.
