Best gluten free chocolate cake I've ever had. We came to see the house and garden, but sitting on the porch and enjoying the English tea really made it a highlight of our Nelson visit. Don't miss it!

This place has many inconsistencies.
- Very classy location and gardens but we were greeted like long lost friends
- Great food with surprisingly pretty reasonable prices
Definitely an excellent choice for breakfast / lunch or a coffee.
A very charming building (even if you are not into that sought of thing)

Came here on recommendation from B&B and not disappointed. Lovely setting. I had orange blackberry and marscapone cake and husband had chocolate cake - both served with berries... fabulous! Can't assess full meals but looked good!

I visited as part of a baby shower group for High Tea. It was a delightful experience; the set up and presentation is quite elegant, the service is very satisfactory and the food is superb. This High Tea experience is not the most economical afternoon tea you could enjoy but is definitely worth it as there is no other place in Nelson that delivers something quite like it.

Came here for lunch on a Thursday, we sat outside on the veranda in the sun, it was stunning. I ordered the salmon which was amazing! So many flavours. The service was fantastic and friendly, cant wait to go back soon.
