“Quick & Quaint”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

During a recent trip to England, I stopped here for a quick lunch. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was very quaint; it was like stepping back in time a few decades! The owner, Tracy, was extremely friendly and helpful. Although I wasn't in need of them, I understand that their gluten-free offerings are very popular; a group at another table went to Poppies specifically because of their gluten-free menu. I'd certainly return.

“A Saturday afternoon visit.”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A quaint little teashop, if nothing out of the ordinary. We had a pot of earl grey and a slice Victoria sponge each, which was tasty and just what we needed. The service was ok, although I didn't find it over friendly. The wool shop incorporated is an original and clever concept. A relaxing and unhurried experience.

“Friendly warm welcome”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We made a return visit to this lovely traditional tearoom which has a wonderful cosy atmosphere run by a genuinely nice family. The homely decor consists of small round tables with pretty tablecloths Service is at the table with china teapots, cups and knitted poppies in vases is quirky and fun. The tearoom has lots of hand knitted flowers and garments and wool around. The owner serves delicious cakes and scones or light lunches all reasonable priced, if you want to just sit, chat and relax without being hurried this is the place. Relaxing and very friendly with a knitting club if you want to bring your needles along. Our return visit after four years and it was just a quaint and lovely / Lincolnshire couple

“Traditional English tea room”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Poppies is a bit like the North Yorkshire Moors Railway- it preserves something of the past whilst offering excellent service.
Inside there is a cosy traditional feel, with small round tables decked with lovely old tablecloths, service is at the table, and welcoming but not over friendly.
The best thing about the cafe is the way they have left the double shop front in its original style. It still has the name of the jewellers on the door, and the window furniture has been left just as it had been when it was a shop premises.
Outside, should you need it, there is a charming and unique toilet entirely made of wood, but to describe it as a shed (as I heard someone so doing) would do it a disservice.
I can't comment too much on the food as we were keen to have a speedy lunch and see the castle before getting back on the train, so the tuna jacket potato was just right and served promptly.
I would recommend this cafe as it seemed to fit in with the nostalgic theme of the day and presents good English food with excellent service.
