After all these years they've never let their standards drop. Cakes, crumbles, meals etc all delicious. I'm sure I saw today the "no phones" signs have gone, though, as with all tearooms, restaurants etc it's best to put them in silent mode. I will be...More

The menu is not large but the food is done well, all the cakes are home made on the premisis, the coffees are lovely and the decor is some of the cutest, quirkiest I've seen. Well worth a visit for a spot of lunch.
