Excellent cakes, a fine selection of teas, good snacks, proper service and a nice environment. There is nothing particularly distinctive about this place but all the pieces fit together and work for a more than adequate result.

A real delight. Dog friendly and supply covers for muddy boots. We popped in for tea and something light to eat. Service was very good and had the best bacon sandwich I've had for a long time. Very nice classical music in the background. Would highly recommend

The food was lovely and the cake was simply amazing!! The service was fantastic, the place was clean and it showed the old schoolhouse theme throughout. There was nothing to fault and I would recommend to anyone.

Three visited here for afternoon teas and cakes. Excellent service by people who know what they are doing. Efficient service, fine coffee, tea and tea cakes in a lovely, traditional setting. It's a front room with table and chairs expertly arranged in a comfortable array. Very traditional - an industry not got-at by modern business. Prices are very reasonable and... More

We ordered the homemade quiche and crab sandwich both were delicious followed... More
