You can see the famous Iron Bridge from the forecourt. Prompt and efficient service. Good coffee, didn't eat on this occasion but breakfast served to an adjoining table looked very appetising and their plates were left empty!

Popped in for an afternoon tea and cake with the children. The squares and milk they ordered came in huge glasses offering excellent value for money. We picked Assam tea at random and it made a nice change. The Barabrith was delicious as were our scones. A great little find, would definitely recommend.

Very friendly service. A great selection of tea and cakes. Cream teas and the lemon drizzle cake were the favourites in our group. It was really nice to have the dogs welcomed and water bowls provided for them too. Will definitely go back!
