Miss Margaret Courtney, my great-aunt originally opened her business here in 1909 and it has been run by four generations of ladies in my family. I reopened in summer 2008 as Miss Courtney's Tearooms.

We are an independent tearooms specializing in afternoon tea fare, light lunches and breakfasts. We endeavour to capture the feeling of nostalgia associated with 'taking tea'. Expect old fashioned tablecloths, antique chinaware and glistening chandeliers........ ....take some time to 'take some tea' with us.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
What you need:
6 oz butter
4 oz caster sugar
8 oz self-raising flour
4 oz chocolate chips

What you do:
Preheat the oven to 180oC, gas mark 4. Grease 2 baking sheets.
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Using an electric whisk is quickest.
Sieve the flour into the bowl and fold it in, using a metal spoon to ‘cut’, lift and fold the mixture.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into small balls and place on the greased baking sheets. Flatten them slightly and leave room between for them to spread out.
Cook for about 15 minutes until lightly browned. Leave to cool and firm up on a cooling rack. To be really bold melt milk chocolate and dip half the biscuit in and leave on wire rack to cool!
