Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful tea room, very good quality of food, loose leaf tea is excellent. Their sandwiches have amazing bread and wonderful fillings. The only problem is I never know what cake to have as they are all so good.

Just a completely awesome place. Done as a traditional tearoom with pretty china tea cups and table cloths. There was plenty to choose from on the menu and lots of gluten free options. They are also really dog friendly both inside and outside. Our two...large dogs were made welcome and comfortable and given a dish of cut up sausage. Such lovely kind staff too. We will definitely be back. Thank you. Top tip book ahead, we didn’t and almost all the other tables were booked and they were turning people away.More

We came in as it was advertised as dog friendly and had gluten free options. We weren't disappointed. I had the gluten free veggie breakfast which was huge and delicious. My partner had the BLT which was huge when it arrived. The best part was...they even brought out a little something for the dog which was helpful to distract her when other people came in with their dogs.More

We all thought the food was lovely . Brilliantly presented, caring nice staff, and mouth-wateringly yummy food. They even had some sausage for the doggies to enjoy! The only downside was we ate all the food (no wonder, it was lovely) we didn’t have room...for pudding! Would defo recommend coming here!More

This a little gem of a place. Set in the quaint Harts Barn development with a few little shops dotted around, a beautician and cookery school, the tea shop is the main draw here. Run by delightful people, the food is homemade and wholesome with...amazing cakes. The huge range of tea is served in beautiful mismatched bone China crockery. It is always popular so worth reserving a table. I hear the Sunday lunches are excellent too. Great value for money too. Highly recommended!More

I booked this tea room as our lunch stop on the way to Herefordshire with 14 friends for a Mystery Tour, which I put together. My husband and I had visited in April and loved it. It is a very very old place, but it...has a 1940s/50s theme with lots of metal adverts from that era on the walls, (you will recognise them from my photographs!) along with music to go with it too which just finishes off the ambience. You will enter the Tea Room by a very creaky door, but that all adds to the atmosphere - it would be a sin to oil it!! The food is "to die for" but be prepared for sandwiches made with thick bread and enormous fillings, so you'll be very full when you've finished. It's tremendous. You can request medium-sliced bread though. The food is served on bone china which finishes off the theme. There is a large range of beautiful home-made cakes too, but you will be very lucky to have room left after lunch for cake. :) The staff are lovely too and I just wish we had that tea room where we live.More

I normally struggle with places to eat breakfast/lunch as I have celiac disease, but find the old dairy an absolute pleasure to dine with; almost everything on the menu can be alternated to be gluten free. I've had an afternoon tea, which I believed that...I would be stuck with a brownie as my cake, but there was multiple gluten free options, a gluten free plain scone, and gluten free sandwich (which the bread was absolutely delicious and moist!) My partner had GF eggs benedict, and they've also reported that it was delicious!More

We came here for breakfast when the owners of our holiday cottage recommended it. And wow were we not disappointed. The food was awesome and such a great choice for breakfast. The tearoom is delightful and the staff so friendly and chatty. We cannot wait...to revisit even if we were just passing through. Little tip, scrambled egg is to die for.More

Great tea selection, consistently good menu and affordable prices. Personal favourite is the Welsh Rabbit, not available try the eggs Benedict with Salmon or the local ham. Yummy! My wife recommends the curried cauliflower soup or the fish cakes if you’re feeling a little more...peckish. Be warned the portions are good and the home made cakes even bigger 👍More
