We had bunch and browsed the Sunday monthly market. A really quaint place with great quality food, easy chilled set-up and friendly service. The lemon cheesecake is to die for.

We had a delicious breakfast at Tea in the Trees. They made French toast for my daughter even though it was not on the menu. We enjoyed the market too (1st and last Sunday of each month.)

I loved this quirky place. We had seen it advertised and were pleasantly surprised by the varied menu. The prices were reasonable ,the servings large and attractively served. The décor is offbeat with creative use of bottles in the lighting and old crockery used as flower pots, etc On a Saturday a small market is hosted at the venue. Pensioners... More

covered outdoor cafe with generous salads, tasty breakfasts and delicious cheesecake, this is a worthwhile stop and is great for families with kids because there is an outdoor play area and lots of space for them to run around and explore.

A short drive from East London this is a great venue for light meals and enticing tea time treats. The food was great. The service friendly. The venue relaxed. A real treat.

Attended a concert there, like the set up of the place but think they could do more with the stands or food available for a crowd. Good potential for the site but what do they do with it normally? I did not get the whole picture

The title is so true. This quaint eatery is surrounded by trees and shrubbery. They serve delicious Breakfasts and Lunches. All beautifully prepared and served rather uniquely and appealingly. Their fresh juices are served in Jam Jars with all the trimmings. It is well worth the drive to enjoy the surroundings and the excellent meals. There are two walks available... More

They have a wonderful breakfast, albeit not an overly large selection. They also have a quaint market every first and last Sunday of the month. They also have what looks like a very nice play area for the kids.

We had a lovely lunch here on Sunday. Lovely place in the shade with delicious food and nice play area. Pity it isn't open every day! The Quiche with avocado salad was great and we tasted the best brownies!
