The courtyard tea rooms is a lovely place to visit, food good and nicely presented. You can while away a couple of hours looking at the little shops and hand crafted goodies. It truly is a hidden gem 😃

Big shout out to Lee & Kris and their team. Thank you for a warm welcome and the most scrumptious Italian coffee cake. An oasis of calm and good old fashioned values ...and culinary delights.

Popped in for a quick cuppa before heading for family event in the vicinity. Friendly service, good choice of teas, and very tasty dorset apple cake with clotted cream. Yum

Sorry I have been away on holiday. The Tearooms do a lovely take away service, cakes, scones and just about anything else that you may like to order. Including lunch.

Hi. We have gluten free brownies and sometimes a second cake too. Also gluten free crumpets, fruited tea loaf, and gluten free bread. We do not have gluten free scones. We look forward to your visit.
