Lovely coffee, cakes and lunches at this very friendly Tearoom. Live locally - and it is a favourite place for meeting up with friends and not feel “rushed”!

Very sorry to hear you are not happy with our menu changes. We have streamlined the menu to minimise waste and to be seasonal offering more fresh local homemade produce. We do try to accommodate specific requests when possible.

Really sorry but we don't allow dogs inside. We have a couple of tables outside which people often sit at with their dogs, when it's warm enough!
