We had the most delicious cream tea and the Devon clotted cream and jam was thick and lovely. Beautiful tea cups and the decor was perfect for a seaside town. It was good value, cosy and service was great. Please don't change!

We were lucky to get one of the few outside tables, where we enjoyed a lovely tea in the sunshine. There was a good selection of teas and the servings were generous.
