Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Positive experience: Lunch was great and food tasted fresh, absolutely delightful with the food. Kids enjoyed their food, lots of cheese, ahhhh. Staff were friendly. Negative experience: Sense of hygiene absolute zero, 2 ladies serving stroked 2 dogs that came in with their owners, and...then went on to serve people afterwards. I think that is awfult, the least you could do is wash your hands after doing that, i have nothing against dogs but to ignore basic hygiene is ridiculous in a restaurant.More

Lovely tea room, very prettily decorated and a friendly welcome. The espresso was exceptional and the tea was very nice. We were very happy to see vegan cream teas so had one each. Beautiful soft, warm scones (and very big!) with lovely thick preserve and...vegan cream (not squirty cream 😀). Reasonably priced too! Will definitely be back!More

We had a super friendly welcome as soon as we entered the tea rooms with our springer spaniel. They really looked after us including treats for the puppy. We had lunch followed by two very generous slices of cake. The food was just what we...needed on a cold day and was very tasty. The tea rooms are nicely decorated and have a homely feel. We would definitely recommend a stop here for refreshments.More

Whenever we visit Cornwall we always visit The Plantation for the best cream tea. Our recent visit did not disappoint. Highly recommend it.

Called in today ( 26th October) whilst in Polperro for the last day of our holiday. Decided to have some lunch and wow, it was absolutely amazing! Little one had a milkshake and a half jacket potato with tuna from the kids menu and she...ate all of it! Even said it was the best jacket potato she's ever had. Partner and I had a brie and bacon ciabatta and a fish finger ciabatta roll which we had half each of and both were out of this world! Followed by a cream tea to share which again was the best we've ever had! A cream tea for one has 2 scones and a pot of tea that done 3 cuppas! Will definitely be back! Great food, great atmosphere and amazing staff, can't recommend highly enough!More

We happened upon the tearooms by chance on our last day in the area and we had been disappointed by the service levels in other establishments. Not a problem here! Very friendly and super-efficient staff welcomed us and our dogs and provided best quality cream...teas and cappuccinos with amazing speed. Highly recommended!!!More

The staff here are extremely friendly and welcoming but sadly the food needs some serious improvement. We ordered a traditional cornish pasty and a Cornish cream tea. Our expectation was that these items would represent the taste of Cornwall as both are pretty symbolic of...this fabulous county. The pastry of the pasty was soggy and had obviously been reheated in a microwave :( The scones were not homemade but were mass produced which crumbled once the cream and jam were put on making it almost impossible to eat. Come on - you need to do better !More

Called at this cafe for lunch while in Polperro. It was lovely! Very good selection on the menu served quickly. Was nice to have jacket potato and toasted sandwiches as these sometimes get forgotten in Cornwall cafes. Service was with a smile and a chat...which made the visit.More

Hi - we didn’t book and only waited about 5 minutes for a table. I’m sure I saw dogs in there too. Enjoy!
