Our visit was greeted with a warm welcome and found Tiffins surprisingly very spacious for what we thought at first. The meal we had was well worth the wait beautifully presented and very tasty only one downside no room for cake but that's for another visit hopefully very soon.

Only had a pot of tea in this quaint tearoom. The cakes and scones looked very nice but at the time neither of us was hungry. Deserves a further visit in the future

My favourite place to go, especially on a Saturday or Sunday morning, they have the most beautiful courtyard, I have a hard time deciding on what to have every time because I love everything on the menu and they're always improving their cake selection adding new and better cakes each time along with the classics. The staff are very friendly... More

The staff were not very welcoming when we visited here, it was a shame as the reviews on tripadvisor made this place sound lovely. Maybe they were having an off day or we came in at a bad time.

Reasonably priced too and will definitely... More

A tranquil setting and harlequin table settings add a quaint feel. Food is lovely, wide choice of teas to wash it down. Tasty homemade cakes and desserts are always tempting.

I love this place, First of all their Chicken Backon and Mayo sandwich is lovely. Freshly made and its tastes amazing. Please please stop by to tase the cakes, they are to die for and will melt in your mouth. The Staff always have a smile on their faces and very polite.
