A cold foggy Exmoor afternoon. A cosy Exmoor tearoom complete with log burner. Add friendly polite staff and two delicious cream teas including wortlebury jam. The perfect end to a perfect day.

We have been coming to this tea garden for around 20 years and unlike a lot of others in the area the owners are still the same people. There is a large garden and an indoor tearoom, the menu is varied and very reasonable but unlike most others they still give 2 scones with a cream tea at £4.50 a... More

Having grown up in nearby Porlock & returning each summer to stay with family we ALWAYS walk over to Horner & visit Janet & her team for a cream tea.

They do lovely cakes and scones (I can vouch for the cheese scones and the lemon drizzle cake personally - both delicious) and the garden is delightful and beautifully cared-for. Plenty of... More

Had lunch at this real little gem of a tea room. Beautiful setting in Exmoor, woods, and the most wonderful range of birds all around us !!! Convenient little stroll fm the car park. Ate toasted paninis which were lovely. Limited menu, but everything we saw and ate ourselves looked lovely. Friendly staff. Definitely to be recommended.
