We chose this because of the disabled access and it was so easy to get round. We had a lovely baggette and a cream tea. The food was really good and very reasonable.

We often enjoy a tasty snack or serious meal just behind the White Cliffs. Always tasty food well served. Take a short walk west and reach the top of the White Cliffs. Brilliant..

Menu is small but it means the quality is good. Finished off with a nice walk around the gardens and a museum. Fruit scones are a must, so... More

Lovely little tea room, the staff couldn't do enough for us even though we arrived during a super busy period. The gardens across the road were great for a quick walk and the museum gave the place a quirky edge! Scones here are really to die for. Top marks guys!!!
