We stopped to have a coffee and a cake. The cakes were very nice indeed, and the coffees were very pleasant without any hint of bitterness. We even managed to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere.

This Tearoom is small, but there is outside seating so therefore is child/dog friendly. The service is slow, but we had been forgotten. A limited menu.

Julia's is a lovely old fashioned tearoom with friendly helpful staff which is great for tea at any time of day. Lunch time menu is limited I.e. soup sandwich or ploughmans but cakes and scones are delicious.

Went for Sunday lunch, had a roast chicken dinner. All tasted homemade and good sized portions. There were toys and books available for my young son to play with. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere.
