We went to the tea room as a family of four, I think it was £1.80 each for fizzy for the kids (5 labelled tins were produced), the cappacino ordered was obviously a nescafe sachet, flavourless and expensive, it certainly was not fresh. The food itself... I had a bacon, brie and cranberry baguette, this was actually quite nice. The others had a turkey and stuffing baguette, egg and bacon sandwich and a bacon sandwich, bread slightly stale and I think the standard supermarket products, nothing special.

The staff in their dated uniform were polite and friendly but unfortunately this was cheap home food at an astonishingly premium price. My advice walk up the road, enjoy the gorge and find a cafe at the top of the hill. The higher you get the nicer the setting.

The food was ok but the coffee was very weak and not very tasty. The service wasn't great especially as it wasn't too busy. The decor needs updating and the family photos on the wall feel like you're in the owner's home.

Visited whilst staying with friends in the area. Friendly service, lovely fresh sandwiches with good choice of fillings and bread type. If you want to be really decadent try the 'wishing well' cappuccino - delicious!! Also try the Cheddar strawberries - the best ever.
