We found this place by accident, having passed over a couple of ordinary looking coffee stops. Walking in was a bit like a retro tea room, except most of the tables had a reserved sign on it. We only stopped for mid morning coffee and cake. The cake was sublime, if actually a bit too much icing, but incredibly tasty... More

We did not book a table but found the staff most helpful and they gave us a nice table for two. The light lunch we ordered was served on a tiered stand and was of an excellent quality, the tea was particularly good.

This is a lovely tea room tucked away in a courtyard. We visited on a hot August day and managed to get a table outside in the courtyard.

Lunch and tea are excellent as well as the service and decor. Best to book as is very popular and we had to wait 40 mins for a table, but was worth the wait !

We just popped in for a drink and a slice of cake,but the service was very slow and we were very disappointed with our cakes,my wife left most of her cake as it was very sickly with more buttercream than sponge, my cake was ok, but had to rush our teas otherwise would have got a parking ticket

Always a great place to stop and have a English afternoon tea. Scones were warm and full of flavour A sneaky glass of bubbles added to the event Outside seating is welcoming even in the winter with the complementary throws and blankets for use to keep you snug
