Super little tearoom hidden down an alley. Good, olde-worlde atmosphere.We popped in for afternoon tea and cake and it was delightful. Nice choice of sweet treats and good quality tea to back up the pleasant service. I'm sure the lunches would be just as good.

I visited for the first time today with a friend.

I regularly lunch here with friends. The food is always excellent and well presented, with a varied menu and a specials board which changes on a regular basis. The service is second to none, all the waitresses are attentive and efficient some have been working there for absolutely years and know their job so well.

Love the food there as its always been tasty and seems home made. However the last time I went for lunch I waited over 40 minutes for it to be served. There wasn't even an apology. Even though I had to chase them on where it was!!! My husbands arrived whilst I sat and watched him ear. Not ideal. So... More

My wife and I decided on the spur of the moment to have lunch in Cromwells. It was very busy but as we went upstairs somebody was leaving. Immediately the very pleasant waitress cleared the table, brought the menus, explained them, and took an order for our drinks, which again were promptly served. The cooked food order was not very...

Me and my mum tend to pop in if we have time on a Saturday it's just the perfect little tea shop so rustic looking and the food really is amazing, everything is home cooked and the desserts really are perfect with a cup of tea, highly recommend :)
