Called today for scones and tea and the scones were warm and delicious, lovely raspberry jam and cream . The cost was 6 dollars, very good value and could recommend highly. Served with a smile, we'll be back. Elizabeth notts

We were there today for a late lunch. Service was prompt, pancakes took a while (15 minutes) but at least I know they were fresh. Both items were on point and delicious. We could not eat it all, certainly very big servings! Don't believe otherwise!
