Can't believe that it has taken us so long to visit, but we finally did this morning and we're really glad we did. The tea rooms are so pretty inside, making it a lovely place for a cuppa, served with a smile. The cake selection...More

What a fantastic little place and really friendly people. I stopped by enquiring for a gluten free packed lunch for day 2 of my southdowns way walk. The ladies were very friendly and accommodated for my dietary requirements with both sandwiches and cake. Really great...More

Lovely home made food right next door the Wishing Well Cottage where we were staying. We had been looking for somewhere to stop for lunch and found nothing before checking into the Cottage. It was just the job!

Hadn't been to the Wishing Well for ages, it's under new management since I was last there but still has the lovely friendly atmosphere I remember it for. We popped in on a Friday afternoon, hoping for tea and a homemade cake - not disappointed!...More

Lovely cafe, food excellent, nice outside seating area, although situated on a main road so a little noisey. Service a little slow but the food made up for it.

Just off the main road though you wouldn't know. The garden is a lovely setting for a tea room. We like the garden best though tables inside are great out of season or when the weather is too poor for sitting out. Food was lovely,...More
