We popped in after visiting the house. Scones were delicious as was the strawberry jam. Staff were really friendly and went out of their way to help customers and ensure they were happy and well fed! You must go!

Stopped in after a tour of house. The coffee and cake were a hit with our group of family members and the guy on duty was so friendly and engaging. The menu looked interesting and with a good choice.
