Very friendly, food excellent, poor sitting room, had to sit upstairs near the toilets, because they had forgot our booking

I must confess to being a bit confused by your review re Mother’s day booking in 2017 as the event had not yet occurred, I then realised that it was going back to 6 March 2016. Thank you for the ratings of 4 out of 5 for both food and service and value at 3 out of 5. I guess... More

It really is a special little place, staff very attentive and welcoming, Space limited but that's part of the attraction. Cottage is stunning. It's a only ten minutes away from the Air Museum at Duxford, which I was visiting. I had the homemade sausage roll, ginger cake and a cup of tea, all were lovely. The staff were busy but... More

I visited this tearoom today following a 36km mountain bike ride around the area. The couple that run the tearoom (I assume they are the owners) are absolutely delightful and very welcoming. I chose the cauliflower and chickpea soup with locally baked bread to start with. The soup was lovely and the bread was absolutely delicious. This was followed by... More

Independent teahouse. The drinks were homemade and delicious. The food was really very tasty. Good selection and would trust anything made here. It all seems delicious and the location is quiet, gorgeous and feels like 'proper' countryside. I can't fault it at all. The staff seem incredibly helpful and professional. I had an issue paying my bill (they didn't take... More

A warm welcome, an interesting broad menu, eye-catching presentation, high quality in everything, all made with intelligence, love and skill, this is more than just a tea room.

This is a charming little tea shop with a small garden to sit out in. You need to go back out the front door and around the side to get to it. The staff made us very welcome and were most obliging. The sandwiches were tasty and the coffee was good. A fairly tight staircase leads to further seating upstairs... More

My Husband took me here for my birthday as I love afternoon tea and have been to many in the past. Lovely small vintage tea shop with lots of choice of sandwiches and cakes, all served in vintage cups and saucers. Small courtyard outdoor seating area. Great friendly staff with a homely feeling, great service and food.
