“Absolutely amazing!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

What a stunning Oast house with a traditionally designed interior, we were met by the owners who are partners who were lovely and so friendly.
We had a selection I had a main meal lemon chicken salad which was sensational my dad had Hake bake and my mum went for the afternoon tea all of the meals were perfectly cooked to perfection. The service was excellent all the food was locally produced and home made
A hidden little gem!!!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Like other reviewers, I don't really want to tell everyone about this place, but it's brilliant! We turned up without a reservation for tea, and I was worried that we were going to be turned away, but luckily there was a spare table. Lovely mis-matching crockery and simple tables and hand-knitted tea cosies. The afternoon teas were simply delicious: the bread for the finger sandwiches was impossibly light, delicious fillings (masses of smoked salmon in that sandwich). Scones were huge, massive helpings of clotted cream, and home-made jams. We were so full that we didn't have room for our cakes, which were packed up for us in a little box to take away. I most definitely will be going there again, as soon as possible!

“Superb Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Myself, my pregnant wife and two close friends visited this little gem yesterday. As everyone else states, the welcoming from both the chef and the waitress is superb. The food was of an excellent standard and we fully intend to return next Sunday (on the proviso it's not already booked up). A really wonderful experience.

“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I never leave reviews but today I have to put something on paper as myself and 3 other adults and 3 children have had an amazing lunch at the Oast. The food was much more than you would expect from a tea room. The service was also top class. Both the waitress and the chef were delightful. We all thought the price for the food was great. It must be 90% love and 10% a business. My selfish side wants me to stop this review and keep the Oast my secret place but that would be unfair. We will be regulars now.
Thank you

“Lovely delicious food and family friendly...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We popped in here for a quick lunch with 3 little ones ...

The staff were very friendly and accommodating, brought food out quickly to suit the hungry little ones, put sauces on the side for the kids and offered to do smaller versions of their main courses for them too...

The food was really delicious and reasonably priced... Thank you we loved it!!! I would highly recommend !!
