We drove to Thomas’ for the museum and stayed for a superb cream tea. The shop is a few rooms covering every day life in the 19th century. The shop is the centrepiece, where you can get to go behind the counter and explore what’s on the shelves, not look through glass at dry stuff from the past. It was genuinely fascinating. We then had a cream tea in the garden by the river, homemade scones and cakes, delicious hot chocolate and gallons of tea! Just what you need on holiday.
Stopped there for a quick drink and snack and loved it there. Very simple but effective. The only place for scones! Excellent service and a very warm and welcoming place to be. One of the best tea shops ever! The museum was incredible and very interesting. The wool shop was lovely too. The best tea shop in Wales!!!
We have stayed with Derek and Liz before, and once again they excelled themselves. Their hosptality is superb. Such lovely people. The Meeting House suits our purposes very well, and to have a great cooked breakfast in the morning sets youi up for the day.
This is certainly the neighborhood place to stop by for tea, coffee, cakes and scones. Derek and Liz were so welcoming with lots of very helpful information about the area, and also a great place to meet the locals. The tea and scones were good too. While waiting for the food, it was really interesting to explore the Thomas Shop, which is a museum.
We found the Thomas Shop completely by accident on our way home on Saturday, needing to stop for a break and a cuppa on a long journey. We were amazed at the array of delicious cakes on display and warm welcome we received, we sat by the river in the sunshine, with a huge pot of tea, eating delicious warm Welsh cakes Such a fantastic place, full of interesting items, we had a good chat with the owner who explained the history of the building. I havent stopped thinking about it since we got home, and would love to return if we are in the area again. I hadn't realised it was a B and B, and would love to stay sometime, I would recommend it to anyone - definitely a lucky find xx
