We popped in here for a cream tea after reading the rave reviews on trip advisor!
The reviews were well founded as the cream tea was lovely. Warm scones, huge dollop of cream and lovely big pots of tea.
Two different ladies served us, one was lovely all sweet and a bit bumbly - perfect for a tea room! The other was very stressed out and borderline aggressive "Do you know what you want?" within a couple of minutes of sitting down and there being no menu?!
We didn't do the mill tour so can't comment on that.
Although I am happily recommending this place to others, I'd love to offer a teeny suggestion or two to the owners if I may...
- Extend the tea room, it's very small and crampt. You could fit in far more people and display all the lovely crafts far better if you extended the room.
- Make more of the tours. The reason we didn't do it is simply that we weren't given a reason to. No one who served us asked us if we wanted to do the tour, or told us anything about it. What a missed opportunity.
- Have a menu! I know you add fresh cakes and pies to it that vary but you must have a core base of things that stay the same, then you could just add a clearly displayed 'specials' board. Hey you could put it next to your (not yet existent) board enticing people to do the tour.
I have still given it a high score because the food was lovely and I'm sure that with a few tweaks this could be wonderful and make more money for the owners too.
