My friends and I had a light meal and cream tea here. The food was delicious and exceeded our expectations. They use locally sourced ingredients and do their own baking. Some locals having tea inside said it was the best place for tea in town. There is a terrace outside by the canal.

It's a small room but has lots of charm. Expect bric a brac style decor, bags of character, nostalgic furniture. Good wheelchair access downstairs, but it would be difficult for... More

We were part of a coach trip for a short break, impressed by the service given on food and drinks aqll looked very good, hot and cold dishes. . All staff were very helpful, and noticed they helped people to take food to tables as well. Were impressed with quick service. Very good location near to river and car parks.

Such a great spot, sweet staff and a very delicious lunch indeed! Quirky fun interior with lots of interesting china. What utter bliss to enjoy highly individual (franchise free) home cooking

Called in for coffee and sat at canal/river side watching the world go by. Excellent service by friendly staff. Came back for lunch (before a boat trip) good tasty food freshly cooked.

Lovely tea in a tea pot with china cups and saucers bought out to us whilst sat outside feeding the swans by the river in the sun. What more could you want?!?!

A nice day when we visited so sat outside on the wharf. Excellent pot of leaf tea, and crispy Italian pastries to die for. I would be more than happy to return and sample more from the menu.

Excellent place for a spot of tea or coffee and lovely home made cakes. We went there last Friday and were deIighted by the lovely surroundings by the canal. The tea shop is spotlessly clean and full of really interesting objects. The staff were wonderful, friendly and extremely helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank Greeni
