Excellent cream tea for the two of us. Children in the cafe were well behaved and parents keeping a close eye and ear. We enjoy the excellent cales, service and, of course, nearly pefect tea.

Meals served from breakfast, through lunch and tea. Licensed bar. Prices reflect the quality, the location and the brand. Slightly odd addition has been a US style wall... More

My sister had the fish finger sandwich which was of a considerable size but they gave her white bread instead of brown (probably the fault... More
