A warm welcome at this busy café, the cakes were delicious, the teapots were of generous size. Seating is inside and out and it is dog friendly.

Had a lovely light lunch with my daughter and mum. Prices were reasonable and portions were a good size, so great value for money. I had a quiche and a salad which was lovely and fresh. Would definitely recommend this place😊

Visited on Sunday for the full afternoon tea (sandwiches, salad & cream tea). We pre-ordered as there were 10 of us. It was lovely! Lovely staff, nice atmosphere in the tea room, fruit scones were excellent. We will definitely be back.
