We called in with our parents for a cream tea on a Saturday afternoon. A lovely treat with great sandwiches and cakes and scones. Good value as one is big enough for 2 as a snack.

We would have liked a jacket potatoe and a panini , but these are no longer available are they ? As yourselves, we thought there was no room to move and did you think that they have crammed more tables in ? Did you think that prices have been increased ?
