“not great”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Interesting decor, but disappointing. Lace tablecloth had a lot of crumbs trapped in it.
And the tea was... strange. Pleasant waitress placed the cup&saucer, milk jug, tea-pot,hot-water and sieve-strainer in front of me - when I lifted the teapot lid to stir the tea up the tea-leaves were tiny and there was not a very much - obvious conclusion being that they had emptied the contents of a teabag into the pot to simulate loose tea - this does not work at all - especially as the sieve provided had rather large holes - the result was very bitty tea and not especially tasty.
The bara brith was ok and was generous and the bill of £4.40 was reasonable (or I would have had a lot more to say about it at the time) and the toilets were clean. I won't be going again but I suppose if you know what you are getting it would be fine.

“Lovely tea room”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Called for light lunch and enjoyed chicken sandwiches and bara brith with a pot of tea, all beautifully served by friendly and helpful staff, excellent quality and real value for money. Highly recommended.

“Great scones”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Go for the scones if you're hungry - they're nicely substantial and taste really good. We found this place after being on a boat trip and would recommend it for a tea stop.

“Family Friendly”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Brought mother and toddlers here. Excellent staff and the food was wonderful. My 3 year old demolished her omelette saying it was best omelette ever. My halloumi ciabatta was superb as well
