Lovley visit to tea rooms, very good value and very homely. Nice little building with pretty decor inside. Food was great and very friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit and easy to walk to the Long Man or even drive here for lunch after your walk.

Not that easy to find as signage could be better, council permitted. Very friendly staff/ owners, food was very good and served with a smile. Clean and tidy & bright. Good conversation with the owners. It is a tea room but does light breakfast......not your big fry up....we had sausage and chips, hot and well cooked. Will visit again the next time we are in the area. Well done to the ladies that run it.

I don't even know where to start, just amazing. We had our daughters 9th Birthday party here at this beautiful tea room, Kirsty and Justine are two of the loveliest most friendly people and couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Every detail of the party had been thought about and was just beyond perfect in every way possible, we couldn't have wished for more. The afternoon tea was absolutely incredible, the decorations and set up was beautiful, the grounds are lovely and allowed the children to get outdoors as well as being indoors. They really went above and beyond for us we left having made happy memories, THANK YOU 💗💗 I could go on forever about how amazing you are as it was just lovely. We will definitely be back xx
