We happened on the Meeting Place whilst visiting Cadburys World and were very pleasantly surprised. Very warm welcome, very tasty and reasonably priced food in a lovely location in Bournville village. I highly recommend as an alternative to the fast food in Cadburys World.

We had afternoon tea here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the fresh homemade cakes and tea and coffee. We were served by the most charming young girl, called Emily, I believe, who was very charming and attentive. A must visit if you are in the area.
