I have passed this place many time over the years and decided to make a point of stopping off here. Parking is free, although this place has no toilets on site. There are public toilets over the road which cost 20P each. We found the cakes and drinks excellent and not to over priced. Lots of chocolate on offer to... More

We had looked forward to eating here as we had passed by a couple of times this week and it looked very inviting. The hot chocolate was lovely. We did enjoy our lunch, it was well presented but mine host could do with being a little more customer friendly. What a shame because everything else was great.

Hold the front page - this place from the other reviews is clearly like Marmite, the owners seem to indulge more in their high quality food and chocolate than in Disney obsessed fake cheesy smiles. We had a cheese sandwich that was devoured in minutes by a happy hungry toddler and for me a delightful cheese baguette bursting with cheese... More

After visiting the area earlier in the year my daughter spotted a sign for this place and I promised we would come back later on in the year to visit. As with the experiences of previous reviewers I found the staff here not very friendly at all. With 15+ years of catering and retail experience myself I do expect a... More

We called there on Saturday as we had packed up the caravan (locally), and had promised ourselves a treat before we left. I had previously spotted pancakes on the menu, so my daughter and myself were savouring this moment. We ordered the sweet pancake with banana, ice cream and chocolate sauce. Firstly, the pancakes are the pre-packed microwave ones, (Gutted)... More

Visited this small shop come cafe late in the day. My wife treated herself to a speciality chocolate drink topped with fresh cream whilst I settled on a coffee. She also purchased some of the hand made chocolates of which there were many varieties. The owners were very welcoming. I would recommend a visit if you like chocolate (then who... More

Only following signs for a toilet and found this delight. Lovely setting alongside the river (no surprise there) which can be crossed by a footbridge to reach a lovely lawn with picnic tables. But don't bring a picnic, sample the delights of the place itself - I sampled the apple pie with custard, it really hit the spot!

Stopped off for some lunch and a toilet stop. Was a little disappointed that they had no bathrooms. There are some public ones over the road but I kind of think that when you serve sit down food that restrooms are a must. That said we set about ordering and my wife was happy with the soup but I could... More

The hot chocolate, toasted teacakes and chocolates are all second to none. All the food on the menu is quality and the small tearoom is cost and welcoming. The cherry brandy liqueurs are unbelievably good.
