I’d call this an ‘old fashioned’ tea shop. Relaxing, soft decor and a wonderful selection of cakes! Menu for a tea shop was quite wide and vegetarians etc well catered for. Staff were great and customers not rushed over their tea, food and cakes and service with a smile. The loo is outside but tastefuly decorated and its location actually added to the old fashioned charm. If you want fast food and a large lunch perhaps not the place for you!
If in Ashburton again a definite visit !
