Scones were lovely, warm and fresh, homemade jam was wonderful - however sign said clotted cream, the cream was more like whipped double - if you are expecting traditional clotted cream you will be disappointed.

I visited here recently with my family and would definitely recommend. The staff/owners were brilliant and accommodating to my two little children. They even got free juice in a fancy cup and had a little sweet shop. Highly recommend, for all ages. The home made scones are amazing.

Very friendly owners and staff. The cream tea was delicious - the scones were warm and so light! It's tucked away from the main road and all the better for it. Lovely!
