A lovely setting next to the river with options to sit inside or out. A very generous afternoon tea, beautifully laid out with an assortment of tempting, tasty treats including divine cheese scones, fruit scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, a range of macaroons, meringues and petit four interspersed with strawberries and grapes. Generous refills of tea, coffee or cold drink completed the picture. A worthwhile enjoyable experience with friendly hospitable staff.

Great selection of teas and cakes that are hard to resist. Friendly service and very relaxing sitting outside watching the barges go by.

If you like proper homemade cake then this is the place to go! A varied selection including everyone's favourite Victoria sponge, chocolate brownies and scones alongside some new ideas like rose prosecco cake. Very generous portion sizes too. Proper loose leaf tea in vintage teapots with pretty cups and saucers. You are asked how you like your tea and having asked for strong that's exactly what we got. The pot of tea for two was very generous, we lost count of the number of cups we got out of it!
Other customers were enjoying afternoon tea and it looked superb. This needs to be booked in advance and we shall definitely be trying it soon.
The canalside setting is peaceful if not quite as picturesque as one might hope. It's nice to be able to sit outside when the weather is fine but inside is cosy too.
The staff are very friendly and helpful too. Will definitely be back.

One of the best pots of Earl Grey I've had in a long time and the cake was pretty good too. Interesting setting by the canal.

Booked a table for afternoon tea weeks ago. Turned up and hadn't got the reservation. Managed to get us a table though. The sandwiches were served on a plate individual and even some had a crust which is unheard of really. Too much butter on them for my liking. The sandwiches were served with a cheese scone which was doughy. The cakes were bought out nicely presented. However the scone again was doughy. The shortbread very sweet but the Victoria sandwich cake nice. The latte coffee was nice but the tea better. Service left a lot to be desired too. Had to wait to pay as the guy was no where to be seen. Wasn't worth the trip out and very difficult to find.
