Serving a changing selection of homemade cakes and a varied breakfast and lunch menu, the Mad Hatter is outstanding! There is a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian options and the service is friendly and attentive. Highly recommended!

Lovely coffee shop, good food, friendly staff. Only thing that was a little disappointing were the small cakes on the children’s afternoon tea, obviously shop bought, one small homemade cupcake would have been nicer and more in keeping with the rest of the food.

Visited with friends and enjoyed various scones of cheese, jam &cream, and special ginger jam, all with a lovely pot of tea. Run by a lovely friendly couple. Can even take a pooch into their garden eating area.
