Cosy, friendly and very relaxing is what most visitors say about the delightful tea shop. Set out in a very homely style and with a good selection of tasty light lunches and scrumptious desserts, it is a very pleasant place to stop for refreshments during your visit. Morning coffee, cakes and afternoon teas are always tempting too.
