Visited Animal Care for their Spring Fayre. Lovely warm sunny day which was brilliant for all the stalls and bouncy castles and outside activities. Spread out over a big area - grounds are massive. Hook a duck, bottle bola, bric a brac and other bits and bobs just at the front of the tea rooms. Lots of friendly, excited dogs... More

Had afternoon tea for two (£4 each, 50p extra for hot chocolate): tuna mayo sandwiches and carrot cake with hot chocolate, ham sandwiches, victoria sponge and tea. Had a look round the Animal Care Shop whilst the food was being prepared, which didn't take long at all. When we sat back down we were greeted first with the drinks and... More

Went for a cuppa after visiting Animal Care. Tea was nice, coffee not so nice! Victoria sponge went down very well with everyone! One of Animal Care's charity shops is within the building the cats is in so it was good to have a mooch round whilst waiting for hour drinks to cool down. Service a bit slow but we... More

We were lucky to have rescued one of our dogs from Animal Care a couple of years ago, and each Xmas we take treats for animals staying there over the holiday period. This year we also called for lunch in the cafe, which is also the reception, and their charity shop. It is a lovely cafe, and although the menu... More

When visit this little tearoom the staff are always helpful and friendly. They make a great lemon meringue pie but get there early as its a good seller.

I was here in April, while waiting to adopt a dog. I have had three dogs from here since 1991. The only problem is that I only go here when my dog has died and I need another, must try harder. Good place to get to know your possible animal after taking it for a walk. Unlike most cafes dogs... More

Everything is entirely homemade, wonderful home baked cakes and bread and homemade soups and quiches. They taste professional! Slightly overpriced but excusable since all profits go to the animals. Volunteers are friendly and service is great.

Hi Angela Dorothy. Have only just read your lovely review and would like to say thanks on behalf of both Pauline Seymour (co-manager) and myself. I would like to raise just one tiny issue with the review and that is where we are described as "slightly overpriced". We are one of the cheapest café/tearooms in the area. One of the... More
