We had been here before, so we knew that sitting in the garden to the rear was pleasant, although there is indoor seating for those that wish to stay out of the elements. The garden itself is well maintained, with some very pretty flowers and...More

Looking for a snack or tea and cake then you must go here. It is like a well kept back garden with amazing flowers and lovely staff, a very small lunch menu which has all you need and then lots of cakes and drinks. No...More

What a delightful stop on a Tuesday summer morning! Tasty, fresh, warm fruit scone, and a pot of tea, sitting in the delightful garden. Friendly, attentive service. Well priced. Notable that most of the customers were locals - happy frequent comers, I'd say.

A quaint old English shop with an excellent little well kept garden to sit in and enjoy tea and cake. Interesting gift ideas in the shop too. Well worth a visit.

If it hadn't have been raining we would never have found such a lovely coffee shop. The staff were very warm and welcoming, that made the rain seem worthwhile. We chose just a mid morning coffee and cheese scone. They were delicious, slightly warmed to...More
