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.

Lovely, clean, welcoming tea rooms with an excellent range of home baked produce which is beautiful presented. We booked, which I would recommend especially in the summer months. The focaccia was particularly good, freshly made, as were the scones! Sonia and the other staff were...very friendly- please don’t change a thing! They have their own car park, and a pretty garden for warmer months! I can’t wait to return!More

Excellent food and service, very dog friendly. We sat down and they brought the dog a bowl of water and even treats. The food is very nice and so well done for lunch all fresh and tasty and the home made soup was delicious. We...were full after lunch so missed out on the scones but a good reason to return. Lovely quality all round.More

Called in on route to Cornwall for a sneaky cream tea as the scones here are always gorgeous. We were tempted by their “winter scones”- with cranberries and cinnamon! They were AMAZING and should be tried if you can visit! Such a good start to...our holiday! Hubby reckoned they were better than fruit scones!More

Fabulous afternoon tea and a very warm welcome for us and our dog who was given water and treats. The owners are charming. Afternoon tea was excellent and the scones were as good as my mum makes! We will be back!

Came across the Black Dog tearoom quite by accident, amazing menu, dog-friendly, and charming people. Recommend the cheese and chorizo on toast! Apple cake was blissful; I even tried to get the recipe from the cook!

Whist on family break in area we visited Black Dog Tea Room last Tuesday afternoon for a cream tea. It was superb: Generous helpings of jam and cream and homemade scones (we all had the cream tea) plus a good selection of homemade cakes. We...can recommend their tea room blend tea - in fact we all bought some jam and tea. The staff were very friendly and attentive, location superb - we sat in their lovely garden on a warm sunny autumn afternoon. We will all definitely visit again on our next family mini-break!More

We stopped in here en route to Cornwall (my wife and 1 year old daughter). First of all the staff are great, really friendly and attentive, they loved our little girl. Then there is the food, clearly a lot of care has gone into the...ingredients selection, a lot of good healthy foods available with some great treats. The only possible hick-up is the parking, there is not loads of well-configured spaces and parking elsewhere did not appear to be available. We will come back here!More

Always buy my cream teas here. Nowhere else. I wait until I am in in Lyme because they are second to none. 57 years of experience so trust me. Scones home made on premises. Not traditional but recommend the black current jam which is also...made by the chefs fair hands. Excellent family service. Beautiful garden. Delicious cakes if you must.More

Just what we needed after a long hot walk (and not having had breakfast!). We arrived at 3.30 and normal tea rooms have not much left in the menu. My husband (who’s birthday it was) had the rarebit and I had mushrooms on toast (with...extra cheese I cheekily asked for). Both were yummy!! If we’d been at home we would have licked our plates! We sat out in the garden on a sunny afternoon, we couldn’t have asked for more. The chef sat with us and took our order and had a nice chat and both waitresses were very attentive and wished my husband a Happy Birthday. We will definitely revisit.More
