This was our first time in the tea room. On other occasions it has always been busy and we couldn't get in. Now we know why. We just had a cake- but wow! It was huge and very nice. Not dry at all. Lovely flavour. We watched others receive their lunch time meals and these looked glorious. We will visit again.

We were drawn in by the massive cakes in the window, we were slightly concerned they would be size over substance, but we were very wrong! The cake was really good, up there with the best cake we have eaten anywhere. Its a good thing we don't live nearby as we would be the size of houses!

Went past the cakes in the window just the size made us look twice then have to call in by on the way back to the car park just to make sure, good friendly service tea leaves and strainer, cake and scones moist and delicious and big, very good for value, my wife had black pudding with pear and salad roll looked v/good and tasted the same. It is small and people just came to see when seats available. Don't miss this tea room you will kick yourselves if you do.

I ate here twice, the prices are not too bad for a tourist based business. The second time I went they had run out of what I wanted but they offered me a decent alternative.

Stopped here with a large family group on a day out.

Really friendly welcome and happy to accommodate a large group in what is a small cafe.

Food was excellent.

Thank Becsbri
