We stopped in for a brew and a spot of lunch on a very rainy day. It was a quiet, peaceful place to take tea and stop for a hour or two.
Going to sound a bit bourgeois now, but they put rather too many tea leaves in the darjeeling - the stuff was virtually bursting out the top. Apart from that, they had a great range of teas for even fussy tea snobs like us.
There were only a couple of staff around, and most of the time they were downstairs in the kitchen. It was a quiet weekday afternoon and we weren't made to feel unwanted, even though we stayed much longer than we might normally.
The place is delightfully presented, with an "eclectic" mix of cups and saucers on each table, and assorted mid-twentieth-century paraphernalia on the walls. Certainly somewhere to steal decorating ideas from: it's like the whole place just jumped off Pinterest and into Uttoxeter high street.
