A very pretty place with adorable presentation. Not particularly good value for money. I had the cream tea (3 mini scones served with cream, preserves and fresh fruit) with a pot of Charred Rose tea, which was smokey and delicious. The scones were passable. Podunk seems to exist in the realm of the 'Ladies Who Lunch,' so it's not really a place to sit and read or study. I can see where the earlier reviews are coming from; the proprietress is a bit bizarre and awkward, but she was not particularly unkind.
