This cafe has recently been redecorated. It is a really beautiful little cafe with a good choice of delicious home-made cakes to choose from. There are other snacks to choose from, & a variety of hot drinks, etc. The staff are friendly and helpful, and you are sure to enjoy a relaxing visit.

Overall decor is nice, shame about the staff, non of them seem 2 have a clue what they were doing, and 1 in particular had a terrible attitude, we will be choosing wisely next time we opt to meet up.

Well we had a fabulous afternoon tea at this beautifully presented Tea Rooms. So friendly and welcoming too. The food was plentiful, tasted great and was freshly home-baked. One of us needs gluten free and this proved to be no problem for them at all. Lovely vibe here. Recommended 👍😊

Enjoyed a lovely mid afternoon tea here at this little shop in Ripley. Plenty selection of sandwiches ( with the crusts cut off) and delicious home made scones with Jam and cream. This was also followed by a choice of yummy slices of cake sponge cake with plenty of tea and coffee. Left feeling quite full Would definitely visit again... More
