We enjoyed a cuppa & bite to eat two days running in this fabulous tea room. The courtyard is a beautiful sun trap & the food was amazing, it's great value for money and the staff were really friendly.

Popped in for lunch on Easter Sunday. Inside has very limited seating although if the weather allows there is plenty of space outside either in the court yard or the gardens. The internal section could do with some rearrangements to make it more user friendly not just for the staff but also the customers. The menu was varied and the... More

Pleasant enough tea room with delicious home made cakes. Slightly above average prices but nothing to put you off. Nearby parking expensive in National Trust car park, free to members. Alternative is to park up in road just before beach entrance and take short walk along path for free. Service very good

Stopped off here for a cup of tea and cheeky cake before walking up to Baggy point. Delicious cakes and cute little garden area to sit in if its nice weather. Lovely little shop to wander around too. Well worth a visit.

We visited twice within two days so impressed were we with the service, food and drinks. The cream tea on one day was one of the best we have been served.

We came here twice in one weekend, as we found the service and food to be excellent. I can imagine during the summer months it's even better, as you have a chance of eating outside in the pretty veg gardens. Try the cream teas - scones still warm and served with cream, jam and fresh strawberries or the local crab... More

We called in here after walking 7.5 miles from Braunton and around Baggy Point. Three of us had cream teas which were delicious and the other had a pasty which she really enjoyed. Highly recommended.
