Staff friendly and establishment small clean and inviting. Food was a massive let down. Husband ordered ham and cheese toasty with a side of salad and I ordered hot quiche and side salad. Salad was minuscule and presented literally on a petri sized dish. I say salad… just lettuce cucumber and tomato. My quiche was about 3.5” diameter and looked and tasted disgusting. Grey and soggy and obviously heated in the microwave. Cheese toasty was luke warm and the cheese had congealed. Such a shame given the cost of both these meals. Would not recommend the food here sorry.

We visited Havilands after three years of holidaying in the area and seeing how popular it was, but never actually managing to try it!

We arrived at lunchtime and the cafe was starting to fill up. We easily got a table by the window and the waiter promptly took our drinks order.

We loved the quirkiness of the place (particularly the teacups on the walls). The cafe was spotlessly clean as was all our crockery, cutlery etc.

We ordered the afternoon tea for two and had some dietary requirements which were no problem at all. When it arrived there were six sandwiches, two scones with lashings of cream and jam and two slices of cake.

It was absolutely delicious. Everything was freshly made and the scones were just warmed enough. We left well and truly stuffed!

I’ve given five stars as I think £25 for both of us is extremely reasonable in the area for what we got. We had one tiny quibble - cake on afternoon tea should be 4 or 5 small bites and we got 2 standard slices. This made sharing with my husband a little tricky!

We will be back - probably for breakfast before we go home!

Work locally so popped in for a sandwich in my half hour lunch. One person in front of me but I was in there nearly 15 mins. Very expensive and the coronation chicken was not at all nice, really gristly, threw a lot of it away. Used to be good but the new management have a lot to learn, won’t go back.
