“Its all about the Scones”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I had lunch at the Tuck Box with my mother in law but it was just an excuse to eat their scones. Their scones are AMAZING! The lunch was good as well. We split the club sandwich and it was served with fresh fruit and fresh whipped cream. Don't miss the scones- even if you order them to go!

“Unique little Restaurant”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a small building like snow whites cottage , but was very busy.

food was excellent , and tea pots with real "T Leaves" was something different.

excellent breakfast and staff were very pleasant. Toilet was a bit unique and so is the wash basin tap. so visit the water closet !!!

a must visit for a unique experience away from the usual chain's.

“Horrible service, over priced food”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The service here is very bad, and the food is over priced. The waitresses are rude. The only good thing about this place is that the scones are great.

“Great place for lunch!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Loved this charming small place that had the best sandwiches. They have a great turkey& swiss sandwich as well as the albacore tuna. Sandwiches are served with a side of fresh fruit with fresh whipped cream. The coconut cream pie was to die for!

“Great breakfasts and lunches”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We ate there for lunch and had a great fresh fruit plate and cottage cheese. Fruits were varied and very fresh, Good lettuce base. It came with an unusual scone. It was round, cut in eight pieces, melted butter on top with fresh marmalade and raspberry jam and whipped cream. The wait staff was great and we had a wonderful meap; It's small and you have to push hard to get the little cottage house door to open, but it is a wonderful place to have a nice breakfast or lunch.
