We didn't have afternoon tea but the table next to us did and I'm sure they booked it. Better to ring them as they are a very small but lovely place and they do turn people away. Hope this helps.
Hi, Do you sell cakes and scones to take away? Thank you Jackie

Sorry I have been away on holiday. The Tearooms do a lovely take away service, cakes, scones and just about anything else that you may like to order. Including lunch.

Hi. We have gluten free brownies and sometimes a second cake too. Also gluten free crumpets, fruited tea loaf, and gluten free bread. We do not have gluten free scones. We look forward to your visit.
