“A traditional lunch in a pleasant garden”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

One of many little garden cafes on this stretch of road, but we liked the fact that it was a non-smoking garden. Stonking sandwiches garnished with salad and crisps and a small cream tea - one scone was more than enough! As noted by others, the sparrow mafia were entertaining. Good food, sensible prices. Would be happy to return any time.

“Lovely cream tea in a quirky little garden with nice staff”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The scones were delicious and it was very peaceful in the terrace garden. Although be prepared to share your scone with some cheeky little birds!
