Had excellent snack as tea room closed due to having roof Thatched. Good price and freshly made baguettes, not stingy on filling either. Nice pot of tea and being served in an Old fashioned china pot sure it made tea taste better.

The menu is nice simple British food. Prices rang from £3.50 to £7.50. No children's menu but just mention the the food is for a child and it will be half price :)
