I always come to Helen's Tearooms as a weekly treat. The breakfasts are great and the cakes are amazing. My husband bought my birthday cake from Helen's for my 50th. It was really nice and home made. I would recommend the afternoon tea too. The staff are very friendly and the service is great.

We've been twice now. The homemade cakes are amazing and the bread and all the produce they sell reminds me of an expensive deli but cheaper. We went again for pie and gravy dinner, fantastic value. The staff are all lovely and it's a nice atmosphere in there. Will definitely go again.

Had another lovely lunch here today. Food is homely, well cooked and always tasty. There's an excellent selection of meals and lighter snacks including sandwiches, salads, cooked breakfasts, pies, quiche, toast with toppers (mushrooms are lovely), homemade soup with cheese scone or bread. Then there are the delicious homemade cakes and scones and puddings. It's great to find somewhere that... More

Charming little place on the market square. Staff are very friendly and you get great service. The food is of a very high quality with a huge amount of stuff baked in house. Also Helen supports local firms with great range of local produce. Eat in or take away. Quirky touches such as the teapots and crockery. Highly recommended.

I really love Helen's café. When I was at college it was just around the corner and they offer such cosy, homemade food for a really affordable price. The staff here are really friendly and familiar, after popping in the first couple of times, they recognised my face and always had a smile for me. Their Chocolate Flake Cake is... More

After checking trip advisor called here for lunch on Saturday, the cafe was full , but helpful staff reserved a table for us to call back 15 mins later. I had chicken sandwiches & wife had homemade quiche with new potatoes, served with bucketfuls of hot tea. This was followed with a slice of jam & buttercream cake ( perhaps... More

The whole family love Helen's - so does everyone else we think, as it is getting increasingly difficult to find a table here on the weekend of a lunchtime. Excellent value, friendly service with a smile, huge portions. Love it!

Breakfast at Helen's took me back 60 years: china plates, cups and saucers, and bacon, eggs and sausage as they used to be. The friendly, "family" atmosphere enhanced the experience: regulars are treated like old friends and newcomers like new friends. As well as food on the premises, there is a wide range of traditionally-baked cakes, scones and bread to... More
