Most delicious home made cakes. My favorite is the chocolate cake with specialty tea. Stunning setting and a visit to the Forrest walk is highly recommended

Delightful venue for any occasion. Very family friendly with playground for children, and equally fit for a special date, or getting together with friends. in addition there is a short nature walk emanating from the tea garden which will delight all.
