“More Tea Vicar?”
Actually, you don’t have to be a Vicar but there are more opportunities to enjoy a lovely Afternoon Tea this Saturday, the 23rd September.  Due to popular demand (the 3.30pm sitting is now fully booked) we have opened a second sitting for Tea at 2pm.  The tickets are already selling fast, so to book your place please click on this link.
