“Off the beaten track....you must track it down!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Absolutely super country tearoom. Lots of lovely food and drinks. The breakfast baps, cream teas, toasted teacakes and toasted sandwiches all savored and thoroughly recommended. Plenty of seating inside and in the cottage garden. Friendly and attentive staff and if you are lucky you will bump into some locals. Try it and tell your friends.

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

This place is brilliant. Such a beautiful Tea Room with lots going on inside. If the weather is nice there is a lovely, mature, garden to sit in. Their Cherry and Walnut scones are superb. It makes you not want to write too much because you want to keep it to yourself. We shall definately make this a regular place for my wife and I, and our friends.
