We called in here very wet and bedraggled (just getting from the car) and didn't think we would have such a treat as we did. Lovely scones and teas and a lemon tart to die for. Very friendly service and friendly chat with the owner....More

Ok, I have to be honest, I didn't have an entire meal here. BUT, we had morning tea here and we would have had lunch if we didn't have plans elsewhere. I had the best Scones EVER at this place. So if you're nearby, you...More
