Came upon this lovely place purely by chance during a visit to Ringwwod. We chose a sandwich as opposed to a cooked meal and when a neighbouring table was served with an English breakfast we wished that we had chosen that......however our sandwich was exceptional, lovely home made crusty style bread with delicious filling and lovely fresh side salad.

We have enjoyed snacks here before but on a busy Saturday morning, it took two requests and fifteen minutes to actually get my coffee. More to the point, there was no sense of explanation or apology, even when I reminded staff I had not been served. I was told' there's a new girl on the machine...' with at least four... More

Although we are locals we chose to have a "Holiday day" today. Late risers and decided to dawdle until 12 noon. Ambitions to drive to Bournemouth and do some looking / shopping. 1.30 chose to get out and 'do something' but were hungry. Said 'lets go 'The Hermitage' for lunch.......a bit late ? No, we'll go to Tansy's. It's a... More

Can't rate Tansy's highly enough. Delicious food, very gluten free friendly, super accommodating for us as they were very busy but still found room for us with a highchair as well. Well worth a visit, fab staff and yummy cake!!

Called in on a Saturday morning for a late breakfast. The café was full of regulars but we found a table tucked in the corner. Despite the number of people in the service was swift and really friendly. The gluten free full English was lovely; beautifully cooked and piping hot. My son had chocolate cake. I didn't want him to... More

Little cafe that you could almost miss down a side street. Well worth a visit. Super friendly staff. Just had tea and cake but service for great and seats in the sunshine made this a great visit.

I'm very partial to Tansy's. It is exactly what you want from a cafe in a rural English market town. The owners and their staff are great. They are very friendly and take the time to talk to their customers. You get the impression they run the cafe because they love what they are doing rather than just doing a... More
