We were walking the coast path and stopped in here for drinks and cakes and were not disappointed. It's a lively place with reasonable prices and friendly staff and well worth finding.

Stunning garden with excellent food to match. The loveliest tea shop I have ever frequented!!! The scones were beautifully fresh and warm - the staff extremely welcoming and the service was top class. Wish it was nearer!
