Dusty Bluebells is now called the Strid Wood Tea Rooms. The food is scrumptious and excellent value for money.

Visited on a damp dreary week before Christmas - Warm cafe, friendly welcome and pleasant tea/coffee + snacks - certainly a well worth stop-off when out walking

Called in for refreshments whilst cycling. Had to wait 1 hour for a sandwich and even a coffee. When the food finally arrived only average standard. Problem caused by only one member of staff, don,t waste your time just not worth a visit.More

We have found this place a little hit and miss. Sometimes brilliant, sometimes almost poor. Always lovely service but not always lovely food. The cakes are great but give the pasties a miss, never hot and nothing special. Had a good too many cream teas...More
