  • What a desperate excuse for a tea room! Popped in on a drive around Anglesey to support the local businesses but came out feeling robbed & hungry! Vile instant coffee, scones that were so bad they bor...  more »

  • A notice at Cemlyn Bay drew our attention to this place. It was a great disappointment. We were charged over £17 for a pot of tea for three and three slices of cake. The tea came with no extra hot wat...  more »

  • If it's FAWLTY TOWERS Experience you're looking for then this is the place. The cafe was empty when we arrived and we asked if savoury food was served. We were told churlishly "yes; cheese or ham sandwiches or baguettes". We made our choice and then sat down. This is when we noted the prices - baguettes £7.30, Sandwiches £6.95. We also ordered tea for 3, this turned out to be £2.50 p.p £7.50 for the same size pot that the next table were only charged £5 for as there were only two of them sharing theirs! My wife's (vegetarian) cheese sandwich arrived with pieces of ham under the sandwich which comprised of two slices of bread, a bit of lettuce, one grape and one cherry tomato! The baguettes were modest, but same story - one cherry tomato, one grape and the smallest amount of lettuce! Three of us had to share the smallest portion of chutney (about a teaspoon each). Our food arrived without cutlery or a napkin. Service was very slow which can be acceptable if service was friendly but in our experience was anything but. Very disappointing. As others have said, the shop was unmanned and not priced.
  • We went there today (05/05/18) and the lady there couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. We bought chutney and preserves. Prices average for the type of shop and the cream tea was ok, but a tad overpriced (£13 for 2 people.) We had one scone each and a tiny pot of jam and cream to share and no butter, so a little dry.
  • This is a lovely little place that doesn't deserve the 2 terrible reviews I've just seen. We came here for lunch and had a baguette each followed by a scone. The baguettes were really nice (and warm which we didn't expect) and the scones were to die for! I admit the prices are a little on the high side, but I think worth it overall. The range of jams and chutneys available in the shop is impressive and we bought a few to take home with us which have gone down very well with family! To answer 1 review in particular: no, they don't allow dogs here. This is nothing to do with any part of the jam or honey making process (or a hatred of canines for that matter!), it is because they own 3 rather beautiful Siamese cats who wouldn't take kindly to being chased around by a dog. This is their home as well as their business and I don't think it is unfair of them to make this sort of request.
  • Wonderful little find on a drive around Anglesey. The cream tea is divine!!
  • I cannot share the comments of lovely tea. It was a normal tea nothing more nothing less. In the shop they had a good assortment but no prices and nobody to help. The only person whom we saw was irate at telling people to stay off the displays of cars and telling us that the EU was to blame for him not being able to show people around. Quite a negative experience.
