I took my colleagues out for high tea here at the old forge and I have to say it was superb... We booked via email, and were given the choice of our sandwich's and on the day we were also able to choose our cake!...There were also crisps, sausage rolls and salad given. The food tasted very fresh and the quality was amazing...what we couldn't eat, we were able to take home in little boxes.. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming and attentive, even though they had quite a few customers, they always checked we had everything we needed. Thankyou to everyone we really enjoyed ourselves.More

Delicious bap and scrumptious hot chocolate withal the trimmings. Perfect for a jubilee lunch. Service was as friendly as ever and the sofa was so comfy I didn’t want to get off. The cakes looked very tasty but didn’t have enough room. Next time for...sure.More

Came in with the dog for a spot of breakfast on a Saturday. Firstly the food and coffee was excellent and we shall most certainly be back again. Secondly I must say the lady serving was brilliant, a real credit to the business. She was...extremely welcoming, enthusiastic and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a great breakfast!More

Have been aware of this place over the years which has had several different occupants. Nowadays it has clearly had a major refurb. and can be considered a recommended destination. Breakfast, lunch or just a drink and cake you will not be disappointed. Because of...it's popularity it can get rather busy(especially cyclists at weekends) so if you can it maybe wise to book a table.More

I visited with 3 friends. I am all about cake but as it was 1200 we decided to have lunch as well. From past experience with Panini's I wasn't expecting it to match my expectatipn of the £6.50 price tag. The Bacon, Brie and Chilli...Jam Panini arrived and my eyes popped out at the sight of such a plump, fresh looking Panini bulging with thick, lean bacon, sharing space with a large, fresh- looking salad. I would have been happy with the salad on it's own! This was far and away the best lunchtime eating experience I have had! The only downside was then not having room to face the impressive range of cakes on display. We asked if we would get a table if we went for a walk around,(picturesque) Hambledon and returned after. We were offered a reservation at the same table for 2pm. As we went to pay, we were offered the opportunity to pay after our cake - unheard of! We had a lovely walk around the village and through the vineyard - needing to remind ourselves we were not actually on a hillside in France! Returning for our cakes, we had difficulty choosing but enjoyed our eventual choices with lovely cups of tea and coffee. I am still raving about this experience - and that it only cost me £13.60!! I cannot think of anywhere else that i could get that quality of food, drink and customer service - never mind getting all that for £13.60! GO THERE!More

Came across this lovely little tearoom as we rounded a bend whilst out on a country drive. Excellent food for a reasonable price. Beautiful surroundings. Friendly service. Shame drinks were in paper cups. We will visit again.
