“Devastated..........”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

being a huge advocate of the Molly Cake, i was left bitterly disappointed today. it was dreadful, virtually inedible white crust around the outside of the smallest portion ever.
on the positive side, i wont be buying it again, so my waist line is safe, and i wont be risking any other food either, as this is the second time the food has not being particularly good.

“Great tea shop and gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

In the countryside surrounded by fields in a beautiful setting. To sit in the garden on a lazy summers day eating home cooked ham sandwiches and drinking tea is my idea of heaven on earth.

“Can't fault their superb gastro evenings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Have been twice recently to the Manor Farm Tea Shoppe Gastro evenings and could not fault anything served on either occasion. Locally sourced food cooked and presented superbly. The menu changes every month and there is always plenty of choice without being too many. The owners or chef always come to see you when dining and the atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxed. They do not have a liquor licence so allow BYO without charging corkage meaning you do not have the lottery of finding a decent wine nor the expense of a paying alot for an average bottle of wine. It makes an evening there very affordable for excellent food. It's a shame they have to close so early due to their licence restrictions imposed by the local authority but they can't help that.

“Things ain't what the use to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

Went last week after not visiting for quite a few years. We were disappointed as the standard had gone down. Pot of tea for two was actually tea for one and a quarter. Sandwiches rather bland and too chunky. Scones were quite nice tho. All in all not very impressed and will not return.

“Great spot on a summer evening...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We went to a gastro evening recently on a Thursday evening. Unfortunately there were only 4 other people there so the atmosphere wasn't very lively.However, we really liked the place, the service was friendly and the food was excellent. We will be going again on a Friday when it is busier.
