“Idyllic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Sitting in the sunshine looking over at the village green and church, enjoying tea and lemon and gooseberry bakewell tart, life doesn't get much better. Very good choice of cakes. Attentive service - menu even includes the offer of sun cream if sitting outside! Last summer when we visited the tea room Alan Bennett, the playwright, was on the next table (he was appearing at the Holt Festival), and he was polite enough to move over to a bench on the village green when he wanted to make a call on his mobile phone. I can't guarantee you will meet anybody famous but the tea room experience is very worthwhile.

“Exceptional Tea room in a beautiful village setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is a very special 'Old English' Tea room with an exceptional choice of cakes and light lunches. The service was very helpful and friendly and the room itself was quaint and interesting. All topped off with the wonderful view across the green of this really pretty village. Can't wait to return!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Great tea shop, serves a great selection of home made cakes, soups and sandwiches along with a number of daily specials. The setting is old English village with views over the village green.

Well worth a detour off the main road.

“The very best of twee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

This is the epitome of tea shops! The attention to detail in every aspect is amazing. It's about as English as you could possibly imagine, and then a bit better than that. Miss Marple might walk through the door at any moment.
