It always annoys me - being an inveterate tea drinker - that there are tons of coffee bars and barely any tearooms. Well, this is a nice quaint one with the tearoom ambience, polite, genteel and quiet. Might be easy to overlook it as you...More

Gorgeous scones and coffee, lovely surroundings and staff. Really worth a visit. We sat in the window and at last the sun came out. The weather could have ruined our vacation, but having a nice place to chill out was fantastic

After 15 min of being ignored by staff we got up and walked out. Not as if they were busy. Only one table in when we arrived. They came and took there order and never came back from behind counter.

Can easily be missed walking along Eastborough to the sea front. Appears very dated from the outside. Good selection of snacks available including freshly made scones. Owner does all food preparation. Service was good by two young schoolgirls who were very pleasant and capable. Would...More
