Great food and great service! We ordered a delicious breakfast sandwich for two over the phone and I collected within the hour. Friendly and helpful and I ended up buying some of the chocolate cake on collection which was just divine! Definitely will be back 🙂

I ordered two afternoon teas, to be delivered to my parents & very special friends. They were delivered on time, by very friendly & professional staff. We needed to ask for changes to one. Which was no problem. They both look lovely & enjoyed. I would highly recommend Them 🤩

Had an afternoon tea delivery for Mother's Day, which was lovely. The sandwiches were so fresh with very soft bread and plenty of filling and there was a lovely selection of little cakes. The scones were the best sweet scones I've ever had and the clotted cream and strawberry jam was fab. Mum was really impressed with her surprise lunch, so thank you very much Xx
