Five of us had brunch and enjoyed delicious food. Homemade quiche is to die for! Staff were very welcoming.

Thankyou - really appreciate your review. I'm sorry though you feel we are expensive? You are right we make everything ourselves here in the tea rooms and have prided ourselves on not just the quality but value for money. I know we are less expensive...More
