Called in for coffees - very nice and served by cheerful staff in lovely surroundings, although we did not eat the portions being served looked good at reasonable price. Amazing selection of teas available.

I usually come here with my friend in the summer as a half way point on our dog walks, as its great to sit outside with the dogs. I really enjoy sitting outside in the sunshine with either a latte or a ice cream float...More

Having lived in Telford for over 2 decades this little treasure has evaded my attention until today. Stopped by during a mammoth walk down the Silkin Way. Quick, friendly service, tasty coffee, beautiful food and reasonably priced. Can highly recommend

We visited this cafe several times over a few days. Great service, you can sit outside, good quality food and, really, the biggest and best buttered tea-cakes in town.

Lovely food, such a wide range of different teas, and the staff are lovely. Only small but there are tables outside which is good if you have dogs with you.

I am looking for somewhere that serves a full afternoon tea on stands, with tables laid up with tablecloths, cups, saucers etc. Is this something you provide?
