A delightful little tea room with a nice selection of food. The service was very good and the prices mean it is good value for money. The food was good and I would have to recommend this place for a delightful Ploughman's.

This tearoom is located within the picturesque setting of the Heart of the Shires shopping village. Whilst appearing to be a simple tearoom, step inside for a nice surprise. The menu is more extensive than expected, the staff are friendly and attentive and the food,...More
