What more could you ask for? Stopped off on a journey from Norfolk to Essex. Well worth the detour on country lanes away from the M11. Proper tea in a pot wirh china cups. Very civilised.

Tasty cake, great soft drinks, simple and sweet and worth a visit. The shop floor is tiny but even so welcoming and full of interesting trinkets to tempt you into buying. A couple of seats outside offer a sunny view of the village too.

Such a wonderful treasure trove of a bookshop. I loved visiting this shop today (my birthday), having tea and cake and buying books. The staff are lovely, the shop is delightful and the food was delicious x

Just Lovely. Have a coffee and delicious cake, read the papers, no pressure to buy anything but an excellent selection of new and good quality second hand books. The ladies are happy to order in for you. Great idea
