No booking is required Mon-Sat as we have plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, however please do book a table if you are a group of 10 or more. We also advise booking a table for Sunday Lunch on 01769 572401.

We have cream teas and a range of scrumptious cakes available every day, with gluten free options, so why not treat yourself to go alongside your cuppa?

The highlight for us? The honey cream tea – honey instead of jam! You must try it, it’s a taste sensation!

If you are looking for something special, why not book an extra treat? Our High Teas are very popular and come with a selection of finger sandwiches, homemade pastries, cakes and scones, served with a cup of tea or coffee.

Available Mon-Fri, 2pm-3pm.
