“Lovely location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

Nice location and nice tearoom. Only downside was that there was only one person there to cover kitchen and front of house. There were enough tourists around even in January to merit two people at least.

“It's a National Trust Tea Room!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2010

A very busy and hot August lunchtime saw us seek refuge from the stuffy cafe type interior where we had ordered our meals into a gloriously open tea garden with an outstanding view of the castle and its surrounding area. We quickly found a table (thank goodness) but which turned out to have been prematurely and hastily abandoned by its former occupants - half finished meals, overturned drinks and loose paper napkins everywhere - somewhat reminiscent of the Marie Celeste. However, the moment that we sat down we were suddenly descended upon by two members of staff who whisked all the debris (evidence?) away in a clearly very experienced and smile filled flourish leaving us with a spotless table and open mouths. (Had they despatched the previous occupants the same way? We wondered . . . .). The mystery was soon explained however when the family next to us suddenly started shreiking and leaping about waving their napkins frantically in the air around them. They too abandoned their meal . . . . it turned out to be three or four rather mischevious wasps . . . . we enjoyed our excellent lunch people watching with increasing enthusiasm as they made their way from table to table . . .
The food was very good but the entertainment was even better - The National Trust have certainly excelled themselves again - much better than Shakespeare in the park . . .
