SCONES
The scones here were a rather unusual shape (not a bad thing). They were quite large, but unfortunately they were slightly burnt in both taste & appearance. There was a good choice however – white, wholemeal or fruit.

CREAM
Clotted and plentiful.

JAM
The Strawberry jam was claimed to be homemade, but came across as a bit manufactured and quite jelly-like and lacking in fruit.

TEA
An excellent choice was available. The Lapsang Souchong we had was a good quality leaf tea.

AMBIENCE & SERVICE
A proper tea & cake shop. Clean crockery etc. Friendly staff. Good service. We were sat downstairs which was a bit gloomy and oppressive in comparison to the main room upstairs.

Overall Score: 6.5/10
