We stopped early one morning for some hot chocolates, shortbread biscuits, tea and of course fresh scones with jam & cream.. delightful! Kids were welcome and the staff were so helpful! Only sorry we couldn't stay for something more substantial.

Love Whitehead in general and this place is a total bonus!! Food is always excellent, staff are lovely and ambience is so relaxing with its vintage style and fab music to match. A special spot that everyone must try at least once!!

Ordered an apple pie. Six pounds - a great bargain compared to buying a slice anywhere. They cooked it up, we took it, and it was perfect for a family gathering. Highly recommended.

Absolutely gorgeous local seafood chowder served by charming staff in a cosy teahouse- warmed us through on a miserable day. I highly recommend a visit here.
