Dunstable high street seems to be dominated by chains and fast food so this really stands out. Good selection of food in a lovely historic building and good service. We will be back again soon.

Hi Lynne I believe the tea room does cater for most dietary needs, but you will have to phone them to make sure. Their phone number is 01582 891420. I hope this helps. Neville

I went with someone with a full sized pram and I remember it had ramp and easy door access. I believe it is council run so think they would ensure the place is DDA compliant. Hope this helps.
