Visited here for cream tea. Staff were very warm and friendly. Lovely atmosphere. Cream tea was good value, sconenwas still warm and there was plenty of jam and cream. Some items were rather pricy on the menu so made our selection easy.

As everyone else has said - yes they are open Sundays and yes they have a gallery which would accommodate your party easily. I would contact them beforehand. The owners are lovely people and I'm sure they will help if they... More
