What a great day my Aunts *5th Birthday was a Jam Corner. The table service was friendly and efficient from arrival to Departure. The atmosphere and outlook made it enjoyable and the set Sunday Menu was enjoyed by the many guests. In all this was a wonderful choice.

I went here for Sunday breakfast which was so good I went back on Monday but they were shut. So after walking up and down Castle Hill early on Tuesday morning I went there again and had the exact same breakfast, that's how good it is. Coffee was very tasty too.
