Fabulous homemade jam, delicious scones and cream, and an extremely well presented cream tea! We would have eaten in here every day if we'd had enough room in our tummies! Simply divine!

Went here basically to check it out for another family member, no scones left, cake was dry. We are local and never been before and will not be going back. The excuse they used was it was market day, well then make more scones then to accommodate people visiting in the afternoon.
