Visited with my friend as wanted to do something different for a change and wasn't disappointed. We were greeted by very welcoming staff .The sandwiches and cakes were lovely and fresh and so filling. We took two of our cakes home which the staff very kindly wrapped up for us. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.

We stumbled across Characters quite by accident but ended up having a delightful afternoon tea there! The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the scones were amoungst the best I have tasted in recent months! We'll be back!
