“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Called here for a coffee and a cake, after ordering and paying at counter we sat outside waiting for quite a while then our cakes arrived, the meringue was so hard that when I put the spoon into it, it flew off the plate! The latte's arrived several minutes later and were so weak that it was like drinking watery milk. The cost was nearly £14 , this was not a visit I would repeat.

We had a delicious sandwich & homemade scone with tea here. It was very busy & it certainly deserved to be. The staff were friendly & efficient.

“Lovely people, excellent food, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Going here wih my son who is 3, and two nieces 4 and 8, there is a good selection of food available for all age ranges from young kids to adults. Great atmosphere and customer service. Served quickly. Food was of a high standard for the cost.
Also a room with toys for kids to play with.
Will be visiting again.

“Fresh food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

This tea room is at the heart of the Hirsel Estate and makes a welcome stop before or after walking around the woodland and parkland. Toilet facilities and a pottery are opposite the cafe. One issue is the fact that you have to pay £2.50 for parking the car in the car park whether or not you are planning to spend hours taking advantage of the Estate. There should be a system for letting people who only come to the cafe park for free. However, the cafe itself is clean and serves a range of light meals, home-baked scones and cakes etc. There are tables outside as well as indoors.
