We sat in the pretty little garden at the back with our dog, who was made to feel welcome. I order a cream tea and was pleased to find that the scone was warm, the jam was strawberry and the cream was clotted - what I expect from a perfect cream tea. Our waitress said the scones had been freshly... More

I had a gorgeous cream tea out in the rear garden. The aesthetics were to die for, especially as the sun was shinning.

When in this part of the world, cream teas are something different and quite special. This little cafe offers a range of tea and cakes but the Dorset Cream tea is a must. Clotted cream sticks to the ribs but tastes so good. Quick service and great food.

We attended here on the way though to Bridport. We had a cream tea which was very delicious as well as a toasted sandwich which had a good portion of filling. My only issue is that you have to pay extra for decaf tea...only 10p but still! All in all though very clean and friendly staff
