Delicious. This is our 3rd visit to Dimbola and our first port of call on this holiday. And what a superb walk over the downs. You are such a friendly bunch. Thank you

Must be our 30th visit, and the cakes are as good as ever, in fact the best tea-room on the IOW. A relaxing vibe and great views too!
