And then came a full plate each of tasty Lancashire cheese sandwiches,with homemade chutney, and on Homemade bread. Served with an interesting selection of Salads, including...

A lovely tearoom with the perfect Afternoon Tea. Everything homemade, the bread, the jam (at least 10+ to choose from), cakes and desserts. The owners and staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. In a world offering afternoon tea on every corner and Groupon selling vouchers by the vanload, I am more than happy to pay the...
