We booked afternoon tea for 13 to celebrate an 80th birthday. We were looked after by Andrew, a superb host who made us feel so welcome. The afternoon tea was presented beautifully , including vegan & vegetarian options , all being equally delicious . Fresh...ingredients and care for detail made this a real gourmet experience. Highly recommended. Looking forward to a return visit!More

My fiancé and I prebooked for festive afternoon tea on a Thursday afternoon. We absolutely loved it. The staff were so friendly and when our afternoon tea was brought out each item was explained to us which was lovely. The items were amazing. Festive sandwiches,...cinnamon & brandy soaked scones, lemon & orange scones with clotted cream/jams/lemon curd. Lots of different cakes, but also an irish cream cheesecake which was devine! Our left overs were boxed to go which was no problem. Staff offered to take pictures of us since we were on holiday. The shop was also nice and very quirky. We would definitely return here againMore

We popped here today for afternoon tea, which was beautiful, the selection was amazing and they even boxed up what we couldn’t eat. It’s also like an aladdins cave of little treasures will definitely recommend and will definitely be back😊

Unquestionably the cleanest and friendliest cafe in town, if not the world, with the tastiest Welsh Cakes ever. Well done to the owners and staff.

Lovely spot for lunch! Super friendly and the food was delicious (had to also sample the cakes!). They have a cute outdoor seating area too which is secluded and so peaceful. 100% recommend!

I called up a couple of weeks before to book; my father in law is pre diabetic so I wanted to see if it was possible for them to accommodate us at all. The owner (I think) was amazing and made a substitute for the...cakes and the scones. He also explained everything to us when we arrived and made sure that we had enough tea and we were happy. Even without all the extra effort he had gone to, to accommodate us, my husband and I said it was the best cream tea we had ever had. It was really well put together without being pretentious and they were very welcoming to our dog too. Absolutely recommend!More

We had an amazing Afternoon Tea here and would thoroughly recommend. We've had other Afternoon Teas at other venues but this has to top them all with the whole experience from start to finish a real delight. The whole display of food and tableware was...brilliant and would love to visit again when we're next in the area.More
