Big shout out to Lee & Kris and their team. Thank you for a warm welcome and the most scrumptious Italian coffee cake. An oasis of calm and good old fashioned values ...and culinary delights.

Popped in for a quick cuppa before heading for family event in the vicinity. Friendly service, good choice of teas, and very tasty dorset apple cake with clotted cream. Yum

Gorgeous little tea room / cafe. Went for lunch with a friend and had a lovely melt-y panini but the soup-of-the-day (Broccoli and Stilton) was to-die-for. Only (slight) negative was I could've eaten more!
