“Charming, a hidden treasure”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

This is my 2nd visit to these tea rooms, this time I went with a friend on a Saturday morning arriving around 11am. Initially we thought there might not be room as there seemed to be quite a few cars parked outside. We were pleasantly surprised to see, on venturing up the small staircase, that there was only 1 gentleman eating on his own. Since my last visit in Nov 2012 they seemed to of had a shuffle round of the furniture making more seating available. It was my friend's 1st visit here & she really like it. Service was very quick but then we only stayed for coffee/tea & delicious coffee cake. They are now doing a loyalty card where you collect stamps on it every time you go there & once you have accumulated enough you will get a free tea or coffee. I did find the hard wooden chairs slightly uncomfortable after a while, they could've done with a bit of cushioning but other than that no complaints. I will try to make more of my friends/work colleagues aware of this place so they can visit & more reviews can be made. Oh & before I forget it's open Sundays too which is a bonus as not many tea room are! Located opposite the Cuckoo pub/restaurant right on the corner so you can't miss it. Not sure whether I will take my husband though as with him being 6ft 1" tall he might find it a bit difficult as the tea rooms are located in the roof space above the post office/shop, I'm glad I wore my flat shoes as being 5ft 9" myself only just managed, it's okay once you're seated though. Tables can be reserved & you can pre-order food.

The tearooms have a lovely menu, and the food is very good. I also use them for corporate entertaining, and have found them to be superb. Service is always with a friendly smile.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

What a find. A good choice of food especially considering the size of the tearoom. Wonderful staff and service. Always a pleasure when we visit, whether its for morning coffee,lunch or afternoon tea. Even when the place is full you can guarantee a friendly face serving you,especially if like today a polite young man serves you.
Well worth a visit any time of the day

“Great snacks”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Told that this place has the best rolls / sandwiches in the area. Quite right, too! Just a simple cheese and salad roll for lunch - it was as good as home made. Staff friendly, locals too! Just watch for the low beam near the doorway.
