“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Stopped here for two coffees and a toasted tea cake. Should have gone elsewhere. Nothing special for the mega prices and we were overcharged by £2. We were charged a tenner when the bill should have been £8. £8 for two coffees and a teacake!!
A few days later we enjoyed a massive plate of home-cooked ham, chips and salad for £7.90 in a posh Lakeland pub and reflected on what the £8 got us in the tea room.
At least Dick Turpin wore a mask!
Still, a lesson learnt - avoid the Beck in future and look elsewhere...

“Lovely food but a bit expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

The food we had here was very nice and good quality. I found the portions a bit small for the price paid. Service was excellent.

“Busy but efficient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

We stopped here on market day when the town was busy. But the service was friendly and the food good. A pleasant experience in a pleasant small town.

We stopped in for a coffee, that's all. The coffee was excellent and there was a pleasant relaxed atmosphere.
