Charming little tea room and hospitality to match. For our first trip to Cornwall, the staff made us feel welcome and gave us a lot of advice on places to visit. We'll worth a stop if you are passing through.

I use this tea room whenever I meet my friend for lunch. It uses proper teas, with tea strainers etc and the egg sandwiches in granary bread are just beautiful. Lovely little tea room and definitely recommend.
