Serving since 1903, and still delivering excellent service. This tea room has an historic charm and the nicest of staff. Cakes were delicious and the hot chocolate was more of a dessert than drink! Highly recommended.

We visited here for a lovely home cooked lunch followed by a trip to the Model village and back again for a cuppa and cake! Lovely staff and owner, very welcoming. Great with children and cater for dairy and gluten free.
