This place is very cute and traditional, almost to an absurd degree. No piece of china in the place matches another, and the walls and shelves are littered with hand painted sets and individual pieces alike. They have a small store inside that has the basic UK fair of goods, but what truly sets them apart is their food. Their menu rotates among a selection of favorite dishes (Tiddy oggy, quiche, curry chicken salad, shepherd’s pie, etc) and some lovely scones (always a selection of flavors). Their tea is quite nice, with a terrific selection of flavored blacks and greens, and numerous styles of legacy teas (also with varying qualities). Their staff is a touch ignorant as to the teas and their characters, but are more than willing to send over someone who is more aware. I highly recommend this place to anyone in the area! I wish I still lived nearby; would be a terrific lunch spot for guests and when I feel a bit nostalgic.

Bio

Just a medical student who escapes into food and drink to relieve stress. I cook frequently, and have a great appreciation for others’ creativity in the edible realm, and like to put my own spin on what I see out there. I grew up on tea, being raised by an English family, but was so limited. This, initially, was my way of reconnecting with my heritage, but has turned into a love of its own.
