an unusual venue with delightful surroundings, a large range of teas and amazing cakes. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was excellent. A lovely tea room to stop and recharge your batteries

This tearoom, in addition to tea in proper teapots, has a fantastic selection of imaginative cakes. Not only has it the traditional Victoria sponge, Carrot cake, Chocolate cake and scones, there was also "Bounty" cakes, Turkish delight cake and Salted Caramel cake, unfortunately I had to choose a slice of just one! Still, as the tearoom is in the middle of the 27 mile Glamorgan Ridgeway, I was able to walk off the calories by hiking to Tondu.

I went with friends to this delightful olde worlde tea room for afternoon tea. Lovely comfortable atmosphere with no annoying background music to get in the way of a good chat. The tea and coffee were plentiful and the sandwiches and cakes delicious. All served on proper China. One of my friends needed gluten free bread and cakes and this was not a problem. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant place to have a lovely afternoon tea and a good chinwag.
