“Lovely cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

This is a smart cafe with table service and a good cream tea. I found it a little pricey, spending almost £10 on a cream tea, although the quality was very good indeed.

“Beautiful and interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Really like it here but I think it's a bit of a hidden gem. Interesting museum and great food - had a lovely welsh afternoon tea! and also the quality of the building renovation is impressive.

“Lovely exhibition area but cafe not living up to its potential”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Beautiful surroundings and great exhibition space. Very interesting local history. The Tithe Barn offers one of the only places in Aber to eat outside in the summer with the children safely. However the menu sounds lovely but doesn't ever quite live up to expectations - I feel that the cafe lacks atmosphere and the staff seem disinterested. The service is key to making this cafe brilliant. Having said that the Tithe Barn is well worth a visit.
