Why anyone would choose to call a cafe Tickety Boo is beyond me but the food is good and you don't eat the name! Very strange and off-putting style where they take your money before you eat - which meant we didn't order any cake...More

Oh dear. Renamed, rather awfully, 'Tickety Boo' which seems an odd thing to do when an excellent reputation has already been built as 'The Orchard Room.' Something has gone very wrong. No 'good morning' on entry, no indication that it was not any longer waitress...More

Our first visit to Tickety Boo, we enjoyed a delicious lunch of Courgette, Spinach & Bacon Quiche and a Goodness Bowl - both amazing and filling! Couldn't resist the cakes on display, so we followed up with the Cherry Crumble Cake & Cherry & Coconut...More

Excellent roast chicken lunch with great flavours & fresh veg from the garden. Young chef did great, waitresses could've been more attentive.

Lovely quiet place to eat! Really tranquil. Lovely service and beautifully cooked food. The omelettes are to die for. Kids got some free bread to feed the resident chickens!

Food expensive and plants for sale seemed also. Bird muck over outside chairs and lots of dog poo laying around. Not a place I can recommend or will visit again.More
