In the Summer they have duck. Now as I love duck we usually go once a week. Coffee tastes, well pretty good. In the winter we also go for tea in the afternoon. Why? Good service, polite staff, and of course the food.

A visit here on a sunny afternoon is just what the Doctor ordered. Tea and shortbread - wonderful. The weather was hot so a sit in the garden was lovely.

Thank you for visiting us and for your review. I am really pleased that you enjoyed your shortbread - it is very popular, and the combination of white chocolate and cranberry works very well, we think!
