Sorry , i was disappointed... I dont like Tea in a Mug (minor detail they swapped it) but i felt my Tea was not hot & didn't fancy trooping all the way downstairs ( i was on 3rd floor) to change it...........The staff were helpful but maybe this was because it was busy , other reviews look OK

Visited on here on Saturday 23rd January on a spare of the moment visit to ringwood. Upon entering it looked as if it was going to be fantastic as a querky, vintage restaurant.

Hi Vicky_reading06. Thank you for your feedback, although I'd like to first apologise for your disappointing experience. The time you visited on Saturday 23rd happened to be at the end of our peak time for food on that day and the kitchen was backed up with tickets because of the amount of larger orders that slowed them down. The waiting... More

Can't beat a nice cup of tea, next time you're in have a go with one of our speciality blends. The chocolate one sounds different but is one of my favourites! More

Such a great place at any time of the day. I have used it for business and pleasure. Service always friendly but not OTT. Menu is great. I can vouch for the sandwiches (huge, loaf sliced lengthways I'm guessing?) and ultimate burger. Great atmosphere. A younger companion once commented that the drinks were "all posh and not child-friendly" - and... More

Hi there, and thank you for such a lovely review. We have some more child friendly drinks on the kids menu but next time you're in I'd love to have a quick chat about what kind of things you're thinking of then I can feed it back and go from there. More

Good atmosphere, good food at reasonable price and friendly staff. Very popular so watch the visiting time but even then the wait for a table is not too long.

It was recommended by a friend, but when we went on Saturday there was a fault with the cooker which resulted in very slow service. In the end we left after just having a drink. The food looked good and it was obversely a very popular place. I will have to give it another go.

Hi there, we've had our second oven fixed so we're back up to speed! If you're looking to avoid the main lunch rush it's best to get to us before half past twelve or after two. The bit in the middle is always pretty busy, especially on a Saturday! Looking forward to welcoming you back. More

Often pop in while shopping for a coffe and cake. Reasonable value and friendly service. Upstairs tends to be a bit quieter if you want to chill and read the paper.

Expected our visit to be good when first walking in, the cakes looked amazing but sadly wanted to leave as soon as we finished our breakfasts. When sitting down there was only space on the upper floor which was fine as it was very busy. The difference in room temperature from every other room however was not good enough. It... More

The service was friendly and efficient and the food was good. However, during our visit 3 dogs were also there. I did not think that this was allowed in the UK (except guide dogs). One of them was two tables away and was crawling over the seats and on the lap of the owner. I am allergic to dogs but... More

I'm really sorry to hear that your visit sparked an allergy flare up, I know how unpleasant these can be. While dogs shouldn't be on the seating we are, like many cafes and pubs in the UK, dog friendly. How many are in does vary from day to day and depend a bit on the time too. I'm really glad... More
