Stopped here for a break on a recent motorcycle trip with a mate. Was made to feel welcome so definitely not anti biker. I have 3 pet hates in cafes/tea rooms. Teapots that pour tea onto the table as well as the cup, ditto for the milk jug and wobbly tables. Happy to report that none of these were present... More

This is a great place for a morning breakfast stop. It was all freshly cooked and the sausages..... to die for. Service was with personality which was warm and cheery. All in all a great experience

Visited for lunch on-route to Ludlow on a Friday afternoon. It's on the very busy A49 and you do have to be careful pulling into it and, indeed back out of it. We were greeted by a very friendly lady who showed us to our table. It is a very quaint, homely little cottage with lovely features. The menu was... More

We first went as a couple and enjoyed it so much we then took our adult children. We recommended to them the 'BLT sandwich', which whilst certainly not inexpensive is beautifully served and without doubt the best we have ever had anywhere. The two times we have visited we have found the service delightful. On the second occasion we were... More

Stopped off for coffee on a round trip cycling from Telford to Stretton. Friendly welcome from the young lady and she found us a seat by the window. Lovely coffee, excellent home-made cakes (carrot cake with hazelnuts was delicious) and a really nice homely feel to the place. We're glad we stopped here rather than the usual Stretton stop. It's...

The welcome was hardly warm , a young rather aloof , quite stressed lady . I thought she was just unfriendly with me but found she was abrupt and rude to others. The first page of the menu more or less reflected the attitude also , with a whole page devoted to the restaurant rules before you even got to... More

After having been for a long walk, spotted this place on the way home. We were given a warm welcome. The soup was lovely followed by crumble and custard. My other half had the Welsh. How he had room for a scone after I don't know. We really enjoyed the food and the staff were lovely too. I thought it... More

Afternoon tea here was a seriously unpleasant experience. We were served a very tired scone, overly sweet banana cake, not so much moist as soggy, both accompanied by clotted cream which was most definitely "on the turn". A pot of tea for two, clearly made with cheap teabags, was weak beyond redemption despite vigorous "mashing". Both our cups were chipped.... More
