We stopped en route from Surrey to Yorkshire for lunch instead of the normal petrol/service station rubbish. What a little delight. A cute, quaint little thatched building with a lovely range of lunch items. We had jacket potatoes with a fresh salad and a scone with jam and tea. Lovely service, friendly staff and great food. Good value too £20... More

Just off the A1 as you drive to the Holiday in or the showground. Quintessentially English and ideal for a photo opportunity...pity I didn't take one!

Discovered this lovely teashop through friends. We were treated to an absolute feat that included sandwiches, warm scones, fresh strawberries and lovely cakes. Unlimited cups of tea and friendly service. Incredibly not expensive. The venue is a pretty room above the Post Office, small and cosy.

I have been her a number of times. The tea rooms are run by the staff on the post office and shop below. The food is good traditional and looks home made. It is quaint but excellent

This is a lovely little tea room. My sister in law took me here for my birthday. We had sandwiches and cakes which were outstanding and the presentations was great. The staff were all very friendly and helpful will definitely come back.

So after seeing this advertised, we thought we'd give it a try. Friend at work also said how good it was. Have to say on arrival was welcomed by a lovely friendy face who directed us upstairs. Very very cosy and the food was lovely, not being rushed or that we had the Potato & Leek soup with freshly baked... More
