What a great find! A gorgeous tearoom with a super-friendly owner and staff. Clean and fresh decor with well laid out tables inside and out. Great choice of food available - made freshly. Highly recommended scones (today’s offering included raspberry; blueberry and lemon; fruit; and...cheese). Definitely the best cheese scone I’ve have this year! Highly recommended.More

Beautifully presented! Last minute order and was accommodated, super helpful! All tasted as good as it looked. £35.00 felt a little costly for take a way but as an occasion I didn't mind.

We stopped at this delightful tearoom where we had an excellent cream tea my scone was raspberry and it was delicious. The owner was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. All the cakes looked delicious and all were homemade. We would highly recommend...this quaint little find.More

Visited here 2 years ago and loved it so much we made special journey back, while down on holiday. Deborah and the girls are so genuinely welcoming to the beautiful, quaint tearoom. You feel its special but relaxed at same time. The scones on our...cream tea were as wonderful as we remembered 😋 Sad we missed Deborahs little dog Bruno but we got a photo pupdate on his sister 🐶💖 Thank you ladies, we'll be back again, soon 😊😘More

Had tea, coffee and jam scone here before visiting Battle of Hastings site. Owner was lovely and very helpful in terms of area and what to see in the Battle Abbey. Very busy but still had time for all of the customers.

I'm not sure that it would be, as the tables are close together. Otherwise lovely atmosphere but quite cosy.
