Table Bookings

You are able to reserve tables for lunch, but we do keep a third of our tables for walk ins. However we cannot guarantee there will be a table available.

We do have time limits on all tables of 1 hour 30 minutes

Due to the size of our Tea Room, we can only accommodate one group at a time of up to 5/6 people. We might be able to accommodate larger groups for afternoon tea with prior knowledge.

Table bookings are not confirmed until you hear back from us. Please check your spam for our replies.


On warm days, dogs are welcome on our outdoor seating area. We ask that they are kept on leads and any mess picked up.

As much as we adore dogs, our tea room layout doesn't enable us to allow dogs inside safely without blocking walkways, especially whilst serving hot drinks and food.

Afternoon Tea

We can only offer our Afternoon teas on a Wednesday.

Check out our Afternoon Tea page for details on the menu, we do ask for 48hours notice before booking.

Our teas are £21.95 per person

Gift Vouchers

We're very sorry but we no longer offer gift vouchers.

A family-run tea room opened in 2013 with a cosy ambience in the quaint surroundings of a converted stable. The commitment to producing only the freshest food means this is not a fast-food venue but is well worth the wait. 

We serve a variety of homemade cakes, small breakfast offerings and light bites (Sandwiches, soup, quiche, and toasties).

Parking is very easy with our own car park, making it great to stop off without the worry of finding a space.

We are only a few minutes from the A1 meaning you can pull off with ease and back on from both directions.


Many Thanks
Stephen, Avril and Rosie
