Proper old school tea rooms with some excellent food and brews. Steep stairs to get up to but spacious area. Great staff and really tasty home cooked food. Try the tea snack including one of the huge scones.

My sister found the door to this little tearoom. It's easy to miss as you can't see inside from the pavement but step from under the Victorian glass topped canopy and look up and you will see the most beautiful black and white building. You...More
