Large groups of over 15 please ring ahead so we can put an extra load on and get more cakes out so that you are served quickly

Dog Walkers will find a warm welcome as dogs are welcome on the patio, and in a vine covered sun deck weatherproof area but are not allowed in the teashop.

Also families with well behaved children are welcome into the teashop too. We do have a high chair for our little visitorS too!
