Called in for lunch, sat downstairs did not know they had a upstairs! Sandwiches were very nice and came with salad and crisps. The pot of tea was plentiful and the prices reasonable for the Lanes.

I loved the teapots and the swan shaped sugar bowls. Excellent tea and when you lift your cup off the saucer - there's a biscuit. Delightful!

This cafe looked interesting. We were looking forward to relaxing with a coffee and cake. The coffee was good but the coffee and walnut cake was dry and seemed as if it was partly defrosted. I complained to a member of staff. I was happy...More

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback, it's not often we receive anything but praise for our cakes. I can confirm that our cakes are not frozen, but I'm sorry you felt it was dry. I also apologise for the member...More
