The cakes are lovely and fresh, made by the staff who work there. The place is quirky, parking is free outside. The only downside I felt the staff were a little rude when we walked in, perhaps because we weren't locals. I would visit again but just for the cakes.

Friendly atmosphere in what could be your own front room. A splendid elevated view of the main thoroughfare in the interesting former county town of Montgomeryshire. Lovely cup of coffee and homemade cakes, scones and jam with an interesting menu of more substantial meals should you wish. I think vegetarians seem to be well catered for here. Also nice clean...

Terrific tea, coffee and cheese on toast. They even brought a bowl of cheese as well as water for our dogs. Came back for coffee and cake after visiting the castle. Lovely people.

Friendly staff, good food. I had a cream tea which was very nice, served quickly by a friendly waitress who was happy to chat about the local area. It's quite a small cafe but seems to be popular.

We only had half an hour to grab a quick lunch and asked the super friendly waitress if that would be possible. She made sure that we got served impressively fast even if the place was full. Our sandwiches were homemade, really tasty, huge with lots of filling and very modestly priced. The latte was hot, strong, milky and the... More

This is a delightful café in a delightful town. We were made very welcome and everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was home cooked and very tasty. There was plenty of it and as for the ice-cream - it was truly scrumptious! We enjoyed our visit and but for lack of time we would most certainly have gone back.... More

This is as basic as it gets - low quality tea bags and scones with hard cheap wrapped butter. Waitress not au fait with the menu prices when asked a simple question about the difference between the cream tea and a pot of tea and a scone. The tea room is a ragbag of books, games such as scrabble and... More

After a bad experience about our dog at Castle Kitchen, we walked up the road and came here. Dogs welcomed with a cheese treat and a water bowl. My wife ate an egg mayonnaise sandwich. She had to use a knife and fork as bread so thick and full of egg. They must have used 3 or 4 eggs. I... More
