Had tea for 2 very filling and delicious. The selection of teas is excellent and all loose leaf. Proper tea pot, strainer and china cup and saucer, perfection.

My first time here, good selection of tea, lovely cakes and sandwiches. But I went for their afternoon blend and their scones...Mmmm love them scones with strawberries preserves and cream or butter. Served by a charmingly cheerful proprietress.

Lovely vintage style tearoom. Tiny but great food and service. Really worth a visit if you want a traditional afternoon tea but you may need to book during busier times.
