Could do with cleaning better. There was lots of mess under neighbouring tables that didn’t get cleaned up in-between diners. The service and food however were really good

The tea room is lovely: Spacious and airy. Pleasant welcome and showing to our seats …stylish surroundings. Only drawback was the soup of the day advertised on all the boards was not what I received, but was not given any alert that it was not available. It was tasty … but I would have chosen a different option. Will be back to sample the afternoon tea next time

We ate here on a Sunday morning for brunch, and it was lovely. The tearoom itself is so cute, staff were friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, good choices, and catered well to veggies too which was good! The whole experience was efficient but we never felt rushed to leave etc. Would definitely recommend and will be back in the future.

The food was excellent. It was just a pity that there was only us in the restaurant so that did affect the overall ambiance. Great value for money. Would and already have recommended to friends and family. We will return.
