I took my elderly grandparents for a High Tea treat. What an amazing arrangement of food. Every piece tasted delicious. Whilst it may be considered pricey I think it's well worth it for a special treat and the Royale treatment we were given! The setting was gorgeous, staff very attentive and very polite. Couldn't fault their willingness to serve and... More

We will return and return. This cafe has the most amazing, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. We chose to have a table inside: there are tables on the front verandah as well an undercover courtyard. We had planned to have afternoon tea but on the website we saw that they now serve full meals so decided to have lunch including dessert.... More

Worst place to visit if you have children. The kids menu is a joke! I paid for a kids cheese and bacon toastie and the bread was so thick and crunchy even I couldn't bite through it! Such a waste of money and now I have to buy my child something else elsewhere! Not happy!

They have lactose & almond milk options! A few... More
