My partner and I visited last Friday (22nd) and from the outside it looked like a lovely quaint and welcoming tea-room. However, on entering it definitely wasn't welcoming as there was no acknowledgement that we were even there despite there only being two filled tables with customers finishing their meals and three members of staff. It took a while for our order to be taken and the lady at the front of the house gave the impression that we were inconveniencing her for wanting to be served. We ordered a pot of tea and were contemplating ordering food as the menu looked good but then we saw something that made us decide not to. We witnessed the lady who was preparing food accept money from customers without washing her hands before she returned to her food preparation. We witnessed this four times and the lady did not wash her hands once and she wasn't wearing gloves during the food preparation either. We had seen enough to be alarmed and didn't want to stay much longer. I asked if I could use their toilet before I left and was told that there wasn't one for customers but I could use the staff one which meant walking through their kitchen. I did and there was nothing with which to dry my hands. I also noticed that there was no area for food preparation in the kitchen which meant presumably that the curry which was cooking must have been prepared at the front of the house possibly by the same lady who had served us. I would definitely not take the chance of eating there in the future and would urge others to be wary.
