Have visited a couple of times and have not been disappointed. Friendly welcoming service and a nice, laid back atmosphere. Fantastic coffee which I had not encountered before. Fussy kids were very happy with the toasted sandwiches and jacket potatoes. I loved the pate and more recently had the ciabatta which was tasty and came with a really simple but... More

Popped in this afternoon for a well needed warm drink and were pleasantly surprised by the great selection on offer. We are both lovers of white chocolate so opted for the white hot chocolate and had a brownie to share. The drinks were really nice as was the brownie. Only criticisms would be that the brownie came warm (which was... More

Called in here for a snack today. The offer was a jam and cream scone or cake, with any hot drink for £4.25. Excellent value. The scone was warm and delicious, very filling and satisfying. Lovely friendly staff too in a cosy environment on a cold and drizzly day..

Our 1st visit today but won't be the last. Wide and varied menu with something for everybody at very reasonable prices, quite a surprise as most Bakewell eateries seem to add a premium for location. Generous portions served quickly and with a smile. Worth finding!

Always like to call here for a pudding when visiting Bakewell and as usual we were not disappointed. The food is of good quality and very reasonably priced, but it's the desserts that we love the most, absolutely gorgeous. Would recommend this place to anyone

This tea room is a little hidden away and is not particularly charming in appearance compared to some others but the Bakewell pudding with custard is enough for 2 and worth every penny! There is no lock on the men's toilet cubicle - please note!
