On a very cold and windy afternoon the cafe by the Meare had given up so we were pleased to find the kitchen open and doing good trade. Good tea/coffee and cake selection including gluten-free.Nice and warm and welcoming.

Stopped for a cream tea on a walk from Aldeburgh. We had what were supposed to be date & walnut scones. They were huge but dry, hard & tasteless. I didn't find any walnut. Disappointing and expensive.
