Very nice tearoom with a lovely host. Also a place for breakfast and lunch. The latter is what we had. They have a simple but tasty menu with several day specials. We had a very tasty mezze plate.

We were visiting the Cathedral and, with plenty of time to spare, called in for tea and cake. The staff were very welcoming and pleasant and there were quite a few regular customers. The treacle tart was gorgeous...I ended up buying an extra piece to...More

My daughter and son took me here for a Sunday breakfast treat. Good choice by then, I have taught them well. Freshly cooked, decent ingredients (nice sausages). Lovely location. Not overcrowded or, dare I say, greasy spoon/transport caffish. Recommended
