About

Stepping into our Tea Room is like stepping into a world of Alice in Wonderland. We have created a charming interior design, a very English food and drink offering and a very high standard of customer service.

Our menu is small but perfectly formed. With a tempting selection of homemade cakes, scones, savoury snacks or light lunches. We are most famous for our Bogglehob cakes created here in the Tea Room Kitchen by a Demon Boggle! This is a rich cake filled with aromatic spices, dark fruits and topped with sugar, dates and walnuts, it is served warm with butter. Customers also comment on our freshly baked full of flavour cheese scones served with homemade chutney and real butter or our hearty homemade soups and fresh crusty bread. We offer some meat free dishes and have a selection of gluten free options.

All our food is freshly prepared on the premises and where possible ingredients are locally sourced.
Our children’s picnic bags are very popular and to make sure your little ones are kept entertained we have a selection of activity bags for them to explore.

We hope to make every visit a memorable one for all our customers young and old.
