Excellent tea shop at the top of a very steep hill! Very friendly staff and a good range of drinks and cakes. Lovely sitting outside in the sun recovering from the climb up the hill 😀😀.

A very unpretentious tea shop which serves excellent home-made locally sourced snacks / meals at a very reasonable price. We loved it, the St Clements cake was incredible.
