Stopped off on way home from Manchester and found lovely tea room with "proper" leaf tea and scrumptious homemade lemon drizzle cake. Well worth a stop.

You couldn’t ask for more from Stanley’s Kitchen or its staff. The food is alway great quality and freshly made and menu is perfectly balanced for a great breakfast, brunch, lunch or cake. The staff are very attentive and the simple decor works well.
