My family can be a bit demanding when we go out to eat as among us we have a fair few 'special dietary requirements'. This can sometimes make finding something to eat pretty difficult but the staff were really helpful and patient - and the food was delicious.
The atmosphere is really nice too, can feel like a nice post place to have lunch, but also a relaxing place to have tea and cake in the afternoon. Definitely recommend!

We booked afternoon tea here on a Saturday and really enjoyed it!

The sandwiches were delicious (3 each) We had smoked salmon & cream cheese, (my fave!) ham, cheese and chutney and beef and horseradish. The sweet stuff was yummy (especially the bakewell!) and the scones with plenty of jam and cream in my opinion were the best bit! We got a couple of refills on the tea too. The service was excellent.

I think it was £16 each which sounds a little expensive but to be honest for the lovely experience we thought it was worth it! We had a look around us at what others were eating and it looked equally as good...Definitely will return.

Breda and staff provided the food for a family 60th birthday party, the service and food were fantastic, nothing too much trouble. Lovely to deal with and the food is amazing we cannot praise or recommend them enough.

I have been visiting Breda's ever since it opened and have never had a sub-standard (anything less than excellent) meal here. It is a favourite place for my family to eat on a Saturday afternoon for the following reasons;
1. The food is delish. (and often sourced locally)
2. Breda is friendly and has an interest in her customers.
3. The rest of the staff are friendly and helpful
What more could you want?

I have ordered birthday cakes and cupcakes to take away on several occasions and we have never been disappointed with the service or quality.
