Thank you Barry it’s always lovely to hear from a new customer and your review is very kind. I’m so pleased you enjoyed the oatcake and sausage, they’re all locally sourced. Let’s hope for better weather for your next visit. Many thanks, Helen

Helen’s is our ‘go to’ place when we visit Burton. Always a friendly welcome, an excellent choice of freshly made tasty food, china crockery, quirky salt & pepper pots, embroidered table cloths, plus Marmite! Highly recommended.
