We visited yesterday for something to eat. The food and drinks were lovely. Staff were very helpful and friendly. A lovely cafe that does a really good cup of tea. Highly recommended would visit again.

Very quaint and cosy. Lovely little tea shop where they use real tea and no tea bags. Served in a giant tea pot with a little sieve. All the crockery is fine china in a miriad of designs. Wonderful stuff

After a day touring the town and castle we pooped in for a cuppa prior to our journey home. A charming cafe with plenty of style in a welcoming manner. Friendly staff. 2 teas and 2 scone, jam and cream for £10. Bargain.
