“The Best in Town”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I Live in Daventry and I have only started visiting this cafe recently but felt I must tell you all they serve the best cup of tea in town. The staff are all really friendly and the cafe is always very clean and bright. If you are visiting Daventry I recommend you visit the courtyard cafe.

Thank-you for stating we are the best in town. We know that we offer something very different to all the other cafes in town, and we are proud to do what we do, and this year we have had a lot of recognition for our efforts. We will continue to do this, and we hope other cafes in town get recognition for their efforts also x

“Cater for all!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I'm not local to the area and was at the Hellidon Lakes Spa for a spa day, and googled a tea room close by. It is the cutest tea room I've ever been to. It is homely and lovely. I was also thrilled to find out that they can cater for me as I'm gluten free! The cakes are home made, even the gluten free ones and they also have gluten free bed if you want a sandwich, and tea cakes and a fruit loaf. All in all, couldn't get over how lovely the staff were and the atmosphere was perfect. Mum and I both loved. Definitely recommend if you are a fan of traditional tea rooms.

“Home Made Cake with a Superb welcome!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Found this place by accident even though it is just off the High Street in Daventry. Had a cream tea and a piece of chocolate cake. Obviously home made. My wife and I both agreed this was the best cafe and best cake we had ever tasted! Were made to feel very welcome by this superb family run cafe. This is local family run business who care - where else can you find that these days! Why bother with Costa when this is so much better. Thanks again. Willie and Gail

“The Perfect Lunch!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

At long last, I have sampled the home-made lime & soda (which was so good, I had to have a second glass) along with a wonderful prawn & Marie Rose sauce sandwich on whole meal gluten free bread.
A thoroughly enjoyable lunch with great company and great atmosphere!
