We had a saturday afternoon off and decided on Alder's, the word "traditional" is a draw for me, giving me images of high tea's, scones with jam and cream etc, Alder's is VERY traditional visually with a low ceiling, decor from another decade and slightly...More

Nipped in late afternoon, wasn't turned away. Had coffee and cake. The dumpling to die for. Couldn't eat it all so the lovely gentleman gave me a bag to take the rest home. Beautiful looking cakes in the fridge

Sorry about the pancakes. Sometimes it really isn't a case of just 'knocking up' something that isn't on the menu due to myriad reasons. It's always a little annoying to be marked down for not providing something that isn't on the menu. Still glad you...More

I brought my daughter in here last week because I have been getting disillusioned with other tea rooms in the area. I have to say they did not disappoint. The food was lovely and we were served quickly and in a friendly manner. The atmosphere...More

Description
We are a small family run tearoom specializing in home-made meals and cakes. You'll find the staff all very friendly and nothing is too much bother for them. Because the food is freshly prepared to order there may be a wait when we are busy but believe me once the food arrives you'll realize it was well worth the wait.
