We can adapt our regular menu where possible. It is fairly limited as cheese and eggs are widely used but can offer good salad and potato options. We have entertained vegans pretty often in the past. Thanks.

Description
PLEASE NOTE WE WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY 23rd and TUESDAY 24th JULY. Jackie and Alan have owned and run the tearoom for almost THIRTEEN years, but continue to keep our service and standards high as our reviews indicate. Most of our menu is made here on the premises, including Soups, Dressings, Sauces, Jams and of course all of our cakes and scones.We make everything from basic ingredients, not pre mixes.Our coffee and tea is Fairtrade. The coffee is freshly ground and we use loose leaf tea, with the exception of herbal teas. We aim to source our produce locally as we believe in supporting local suppliers where possible.We also serve Gluten Free meals, including homemade Gluten Free scones, so a cream tea can be had by everyone! Vegetarian and other options are available. We are visited by many customers time and time again, along with strong support from locals who live in the town. Regular hours are 10am to 4.00pm (5pm Saturdays). Please note we are closed on Sundays and Thursdays.
