Nice cakes and coffee served in a craft shop or outside in the courtyard. Coffee and tea are very good, and some very nice cake. Service is friendly and quick. We arrived late in the afternoon, but there was still plenty to eat

Right next to Spitalford graveyard doesn't sound like the spot you'd suggest for luxury elevenses and I have driven past it dozens of times wondering if it was ever open but.... There's plenty of room to park and when you go round to the entrance...More
