“Good, even on a wet bank holiday”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We were looking for somewhere to spend an hour with 4 grandchildren aged 3 - 14, one of them on the autistic spectrum. Dove cottage tearoom is a great find. The zipwire kept 2 of them very happy, the 3 year old jumped in all the puddles, the 14 year old spent the time spending money in the charity shop (along with Mum and aunty), and everyone enjoyed looking at the cakes and convincing themselves that they REALLY didn't need a luscious piece of coffee and walnut! Only one little moan, a disappointing choice of soft drinks.

“Excellent coffee”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Arrived at coffee shop on site just before they were closing. They stayed open for us and no rush. Free fast and easy WiFi and massive coffees. Excellent

“Gem”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Lovely cakes and savoury meals, with the added bonus of the charity shop upstairs. Don't forget to take along your unwanted gifts for the shop. Thanks to all the volunteers for a jolly good effort.

“Wonderful Cakes and the money goes to a good cause too..”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

A lovely canal side setting which is great for a walk, good size car park too. Drinks bowls for dogs are laid out in the garden.
The cakes taste and look home made, drinks are very good too.
The best bit is the money goes to help at the hospice so any spare change helps here too.
Great food and a great cause - keep up the good work.

“Friendly charm”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The perfect place to start and/or finish a walk. It's right beside the canal so on one of the few fine days in the New Year we set off after a coffee there for a very muddy circular walk along the canal and then back through the villages. Back just before 2pm so just in time for a light lunch of home made soup and sandwich.

The charity shop is a bonus for some good bargains and the friendly welcoming volunteer staff make for a delightful experience.
