We have lunched here many times recently and it is our favourite place in Sidmouth. The food is so varied and delicious. Each day there is a specials board and the difficulty is choosing what to eat. Each meal has been wonderful. We are working our way through the amazing daily menu. And if it is cake you are after... More

Visited for a quick bite to eat on a sunny Saturday. Place was heaving and seating is looking limited. Despite the huge queues, the service was good: the staff were managing the orders well and very friendly. Paid £30 for 3 teas, 2 bottled waters, a chicken and rice main and 3 cakes. Sadly, tea was freezing cold. Butterscotch and... More

Fantastic location, overlooking the beach and cliffs. Ordering is at the counter and this can cause abit of a queue during busy periods. However, it is always worth the wait when you are served the biggest, most delicious chunk of cake you could ever wish for! On recent visits I've enjoyed the strawberry cheesecake- fabulous and the carrot cake- moist,... More

We visited Sidmouth for a week in March & went for afternoon tea to the Clock Tower Tearooms. The cakes are just quite extraordinary - the best cakes I have ever had. It is possible to take some home if you can't manage to finish. Charming staff and very clean. Loved it.

This is a lovely cafe, particularly in the summer months when you can sit in the walled garden and enjoy the views. This time, we visited in February and were extremely luck with the weather, although not quite warm enough to sit outside! We ordered rock cakes and, without doubt, they were the biggest and yummiest I've ever had. I... More

Visited here for coffee and ended up having lunch as the specials board looked so interesting and very good value. It was busy but the service was good and the food was lovely. We are going back again this week. Tried on Saturday but was fully booked. The views are nice from the first floor too.

Visited Saturday afternoon, when it was very busy, but after a short wait we got a table and had lovely tea and cakes, overlooking the sea.

I did not realise that this cafe was the Clock Tower Tearooms, as I included the cafe in my review of Connaught Gardens. It's a lovely little cafe & we have been there several times.
