Quite simply the best ever cream tea we've ever had in the most cosy environment you can imagine! We bring all our visitors friends students and guests from around the world here for a typical 'oldy worldy English village with cream tea experience' because the cream tea here even beats the ones in the orangery at Kensington Palace in London, the Grand Hotel in Eastbourne and all others we've ever tasted. It's not just of the freshness and quality of homebaked produce being served warm, it's the location, atmosphere, truly genuine and attentive service and attention to detail that makes a visit there so very special and memorable. Our Australian friends were even given the most elegant 'doggy bag' when they couldn't finish the cake part of their cream tea in the form of a gold rimmed plate which they serve the sandwiches on, as a souvenir gift to take back home with them! They were blown away with Michael's generosity [the charming gentleman owner] and kindness. Tourists can write a postcard for free and they will post it anywhere in the world for you as a thank you for your custom from the old post office in the village. We can recommend the elderflower and goosberry sponge cake in particular which is a delightfully light and refreshing alternative to the more traditional Vicorian sponge and it quite literally melts in your mouth! The typically English walled garden is quaint and an attraction for anyone with green fingers or interested in their flowers. Please go - it should be on one of those lists "Top ten things to do before you die!" It really is that good. Don't worry if it's busy, it always is, but that's the sign of a great place that's worth the wait, so just walk around the viallge visit St. Andrew's church and the glorious viallge green and pop back when it's quieter - we've tried all the other tea rooms in the village over the past 20 years and we promise you that Badger's is worth the wait, the very best one - enjoy!
