Called in for afternoon tea, between us we had the plain scones, the date scones and a berry and white chocolate muffin. The scones came with home made raspberry jam and thick clotted cream. Everything was delicious. Highly recommended.

I ordered a coffee and a date scone. The coffee was fine but a few other larger groups arrived and I was ignored. Still waiting for my scone. The lunch menu had 3 or 4 items on it and it was a 'take it or leave it' attitude. I won't be back!

Visited for lunch, a great selection of home-made dishes from which to choose. Friendly, helpful staff. This cafe is at the rear of a gallery, with its own entrance,
