    Beautiful fresh home baking

    Had a lovely afternoon with friends. I booked through 5pm, however on arrival they could not find my booking. They eventually found it telling me it was for the following day but I had confirmation from 5pm prior to attending confirming my booking for the day that I booked. The staff were still accommodating so all was good on the day. The cakes and sandwiches were lovely, only thing that disappointing was the scones. They didn't taste fresh, were hard and it would have been nice to have fruit ones.

    Lovely Sunday afternoon tea!

    Had an afternoon tea with some friends. The view is lovely and a spot in town that I wasn't aware of. Food was lovely and unlimited tea and coffee meant we Sat for almost 3.5hrs. It was quite quiet so I expect On other days you wouldn't be able to stay as long.
