Surprised they weren't busier on Easter Sunday, we were the first in at lunchtime after a tour of the attached 78 Derngate house. Piping hot delicious soup -someone knows their spicing - and warm bread much appreciated on a chilly day, as was the generous pot of tea for two which yielded three cups each. Service very attentive, nothing too much trouble. The cream teas are legendary apparently. Views over the park, snowy tablecloths, mismatched vintage china... lovely atmosphere. Look forward to a return visit.

Went here for my birthday and had the most gorgeous cream tea. So much to eat I had to take lots home with me, which I tucked into later that day.
Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff.
Would highly recommend

I came here for my birthday. It's a beautiful little place. Just enough room with everyone else around. I couldn't bring my pushchair in as there was not enough space so I left it outside the room.
The food was stunning. I loved everything! The staff were very friendly.

Came here for our anniversary for afternoon tea. The service was fantastic, food was great. It was a nice day so a table was setup outside on the patio. Would highly recommend going here to everyone.

Eight of us had our Xmas lunch on a Thursday.
We had pre-ordered from an extensive & varied menu & the service was excellent from very friendly staff.
Environment is bright & welcoming with linen tablecloths & napkins!
The quality of the hot & cold food & drink was excellent & vg value.
