We had a lovely lunch, good choice of food & drinks at reasonable prices. Beautiful outdoor canopy area overlooking the river. The food was great & the staff were lovely, they even brought a sausage as a treat for the dog, such a nice touch. I always recommend the tea rooms to everyone.

Lovely afternoon tea, venue and staff. Quick service. My Satnav didn't follow the instructions given so we parked on the main road and walked down the single track road. Steep walk back! You can drive down the road and park outside.

The food was lovely but would have liked a choice of scones as we didn’t all like fruit ones and would have preferred a plain one. The staff were very helpful but had their coats on? Very enjoyable afternoon though and will definitely return.
Business Response:
Dear Elizabeth, thank you for your review. Sorry we didn't know you did not like fruit scones. It's a shame. We have a few different options of scones. May be next time. When you visited the tearooms we were in between two storms and our staff were serving outdoors and indoors and only a coat could offer some protection to the elements. Hopefully you will see them next without coats

We would have liked food from the main menu as well. We were told of this beforehand. We enjoyed the afternoon tea. We felt a bit rushed at the end. it was the end of a busy day for the staff. The afternoon tea was £6 more than any another day, too much. However we will return

Such a special place to me. The staff are so lovely, and you can tell it’s a place they care about. The afternoon tea was delicious. Especially the quiche. A place full of history and mystery. Lots of info here if your not familiar with the area. A little chilly so wrap up, but is a very old historical building. Thank you for a special experience

Lovely old building and setting. Smelled a bit musty and few areas could have benefitted from a touch up but that's to be expected with old buildings. Staff were very friendly.

The service was friendly and quick and the room and surroundings had a pleasant atmosphere. However the food though nicely presented was only average in taste and lacked variety for the price paid. My main memory of the whole afternoon was married by a mistake by a member of staff regarding payment. I had paid a deposit of £30 and owed £80. I paid the £80 in cash only to be told a few minutes later that I had not paid enough and still owed £20. I was very embarrassed by this especially in front of my friends so I handed over an extra £20. After we had all left and I returned to my car I felt very uneasy about the payment as I had counted out £80 before I gave it to the member of staff. I therefore returned to the tea rooms and asked to see the manageress. Once they had checked the till it became clear that I had initially paid £80. My £20 was returned but I felt very annoyed about the whole situation Sadly I will not be returning .

This tearoom has recently added extended outside undercover seating which has unfortunately impacted on our usual lovely experience. Despite booking a table we were told the kitchen was too busy to cook new orders for at least 30mins. Begs the question, why allow us to book a specific time? The food was no where near the standard we normally receive, food not coming out together, long waits for everyone’s lunch to arrive, incorrect orders, repeatedly asking when the drinks would arrive. We weren’t the only table with the same issues. The extended seating hasn’t helped the small kitchen - it already struggled with the demand at peak times - if they want to continue to service around 45 tables AND continue the take away & delivery services - they will need more staff and a bigger kitchen!! The waiting staff were run off their feet, even so, they were polite and calm. I really felt for them. It may just be down to teething troubles - I hope so - but it feels like the quaint little tea rooms have been overrun and are buckling under the additional workload.
