Decided to visit upon reading other reviews. I wasn't disappointed. I ordered a jacket potato with cheese &beans &coleslaw. It can with a small salad. Very nice. Although some butter pats wouldn't have gone a miss. I'd definitely go again. Nice clean toilets as well.

There are so many tea rooms/ coffee shops in Battle to choose from! We visited this cafe for a coffee, very good and a friendly owner. Quaint and slightly off the High St. Worth a try

I hadn’t realised there had been a change of ownership until I was settling up the bill. I have been here a few times (but not for a while), the food was lovely. The bacon, Brie and cranberry baguette was delicious and the cakes lovely!...More

HI - yes if you want the full 3 tier plate afternoon tea. You can book a table anyway - it is often busy so if you definitely want a seat I would ! Usually quieter there when the sun is blazing as people go to the beach... More

Hi, no, I'm afraid we don't do private functions - we're a very small tearoom, with maximum seating for 25.
