This tearoom is perhaps more café than creative café but I think it definitely belongs in the project. The atmosphere is vibrant and the food so good that it is conducive to good conversation and a feeling of well-being.
And it is dog-friendly, which is important for many, especially as we are out in the countryside and there are some lovely walks around. I found this out as I chatted to a young lady at the next table. I’d arrived a little early for my National Women’s Register lunch and she was looking after the dog as she waited for her mother-in-law to return from the physiotherapist. Dogs anyway are great conversation starters but over and above that, this café somehow invites friendliness between customers.
National Women’s Register is an opportunity for good conversation too and this was such a good place for us to meet.
The café has an array of unusual and tasteful gifts on sale. This certainly makes it creative.
I had their lovely special lunch – a sort of superior ploughman’s. I was intrigued to see afternoon teas being served in mini-hampers. Plenty of creative touches everywhere.
