We have always aimed to provide great quality at an affordable price, instead of charging rip off prices because we happen to live in the Cotswolds.... More

We found this lovely tea room at the back of a shopping arcade and we're very glad we did. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who had a great sense of humour. This is a great little place to sit and relax with a good menu in pleasant surroundings well worth looking for.

We booked lunch on my wife's birthday and she received a "Happy Birthday" greeting together with a card and a box of chocolates. It was extremely thoughtful and we also enjoyed a very tasty lunch in a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you Alan & Jackie for making us feel so welcome. Angela & Ron Vizard Stratford-upon-Avon

My husband and I come here relatively frequently and it is always 5*+. We are guaranteed a warm welcome from Alan, and although his wife is constantly so busy in the kitchen, the food is ALWAYS to a very very tasty high standard. Everything is homemade, including the jam with ths cream teas.

Bit squashed, but it was busy. Great choice of food and our group had ploughman's lunch, cream tea and ham, egg and chips! All very tasty and nicely presented. Bit hard to find as it is in a small enclosed precinct, but make the effort as food was lovely
