Friendly owner, large dining area for lunch and cream teas. Room okay, facilities need some updating but served the purpose. Breakfast was very good, choice and service.

This is THE BEST cream Tea ever !!. Freshly baked,warm scones with huge dishes of real clotted cream & strawberry jam + big pots of fresh tea. If you don`t come here for a cream tea--don`t bother with anywhere else !!
