Very nice staff. They made the elderly lady I took with me very welcome and took time to chat to her. She really enjoyed her visit there and reminiscing. Food simple but fitting with the times. Beans on Toast, Dripping and toast, Jam, Crumpets, Tea Cakes. Lots of lovely homemade cakes to try too. Tea pots with quaint cosies. Nice back ground music to fit the era such as Glen Miller. Fair prices. Lovely inside to see all the memorabilia. A table top made from a jeep and a piano with family war time photos. I got a lot out of taking the person I took there and just relaxing and not being rushed. This place is attached to a very large army surplus store which we took a stroll around too.

Popped in for tea and cake this afternoon. Lots of nostalgia and friendly staff coupled with delicious cakes and tea. Reasonably priced too. A great idea for a café.

This is set in an Army Surplus store and has a 2nd world war theme. Nice an cosy (even lard sandwiches!). Pleasant service and reasonably priced, but only does snacks and cake/tea & coffee. Give it a try - a bit of fun

This is a lovely friendly place to sit and enjoy an afternoon with friends. The WWII setting is full of interesting memorabilia and is very cosy.

The cakes are homemade and delicious, we recommend the Victoria Sponge , accompanied by proper size pots of tea, which were happily topped up with hot water when we ran out.

We will definitely be returning and highly recommend it.
