I was at Mount Stuart cafe last year and is was fair, what an improvement when I visited in July this year. Lovely scones and good home baking. Soup looked very generous portions. Well done

Although the queue was long it was worth the wait. There was a nice selection of cakes, scones etc. There were two types of soup on offer and the portions were very adequate, served with a nice brown roll. Plenty of bakes to choose from.

Great tea, sandwiches and puddings in the old kitchen of the house. I selected a dish that sported three kinds of salmon, smoked and fresh, and it was delicious. Great selection of cakes. Good strong tea. Very sweet place.
