We chanced upon The Old School House at the end of a walk along the coast after visiting the Sub-tropical Gardens. We were lucky, as we almost turned back thinking the village had nothing to offer the weary walker. How wrong we were! The tea...More

This delightful tea room served lovely food; we sat in a sweet garden but there were two inside rooms too. The staff were helpful and friendly . The Homity Pie was just wonderful and thoroughly recommended.

Lovely surroundings and the garden is beautiful and so we could take the dogs and the scones were very light. There were also good savoury options. Lovely smell of baking when we arrived.

We had a light "tea and sandwich" lunch there a few weeks ago. Very friendly, personal service by Helen - the owner. A cosy room with very nice old-fashioned furniture. Everybody loved it. We couldn't stay - but Cream Tea there would have been fabuloous!
