Wow. VIP Teas is a lovely little treasure in High Spen. Gluten free? No problems-there are always cakes for you. Everything is home made with love and the scones, though not GF are the best ever. Only time has prevented further visits but will return

Hi it's just along from the big club and opposite the old bus depo, well worth a visit. If it's for afternoon tea they require 24 hours notice. You can contact them via Facebook. Enjoy
