Tried to go for lunch today and turned away due to having a buggy. What a shame, it was after the lunch rush and hardly anyone in there. Won't be going again.

Excellent cakes and we love to come for the expansive teapigs menu - served in lovely china cups. Service is hit-and-miss, get the impression the waiting staff aren't all experienced - but they are always polite. The menu - although tasty - is pretty pricey....More
