Called in on way home for breakfast. Husband had big cooked breakfast, he struggled to finish it all, but enjoyed it. I had toasted tea cake. Was all lovely and polite staff. Would visit again for cake, as they looked good.

Beautiful vintage tea room decorated tastefully. Staff friendly and accommodating. We only had ice creams and drinks but food choices looked appealing and very reasonably priced. Lovely outdoor seating area. Only downside is no toilets in cafe but some close by. We will be back!!!
