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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

wow! what an amazing tea room. Been for a walk.in the morning and was feeling peckish and came across Primrose Cottage. Had the opportunity to taste their amazing home made scones and a good brew. We went back the following day and had breakfast. Great...cornish breakfast and decent coffee. Always a plus. We actually stayed a week in Tintagel and walked pass Primrose Tea Rooms a couple of times.. always cakes in the window tempting is to go back in..which we did . Everything is homemade and Karen is very passionate about her food . We went in a couple of times during the week so we got chatting to Mark whilst Karen is busy creating her delightful cakes etc and making lunches in the kitchen. Great hosts and felt welcomed every time. Can definitely recommend. Looking forward to going back .More

A quaint and small coffee shop with a friendly and welcoming proprietor who loves to crack a gag. The English breakfast was very good, the latte was great and the hot chocolate was especially superb.

Enjoyed a lovely couple of cream teas and a baguette today after a long walk around Tintagel Castle. Timed it perfectly as the fruit scones were all warm from the oven!

Our second year staying at Primrose Cottage. What a treat staying there. Freshly baked cakes and scones , fantastic cornish breakfasts. Coffee is amazing, never drank so much. On the day we arrived we had a light lunch. I had home made mackerel pate and...bread. It was absolutely delish and my friend ordered the quiche. The best she had ever tasted. Karen and Mark are the perfect hosts. Everything is spotless and they could never do enough. Would highly recommend, excellent 👌More

Charming place and if the cakes in the window don’t make you go in, i don’t know what will. Welcoming staff who were accommodating. Picked up some lovely slices of cake and 2 very tasty breakfast sandwiches as we left the village and i must...say this made for a lovely drive back home.More

We visited today for a light snack and drink. It was quiet which was nice. The outside seating was a great mix of in the sun and in the shade. We ordered two bottles of water, two teas, cheese chips and a piece of cake...which totalled around £15 which we didn’t mind given it was all really nice. The cake was really nice and seemed fresh. The cheese chips was considered a side dish, there was plenty there! There was no rushing with the table service either. The only slight criticism would be to the man that served us, he was wearing camouflage clothing and perhaps not what you would expect from someone in this sector. He was nice enough but his customer service could be improved - it seemed like he perhaps was related to the owner so maybe he’s not normally there??More
