What a lovely tea rooms we had sandwiches and tea and coffee they were so filling we could not eat any of the homemade scones so we will have to go back again for them.I loved the giant cups and saucers you get your money's worth here.The owner was very helpful after a little accident close to the tea rooms it's nice to know there is people like that still out there.

We visited for lunch on a busy warm Sunday & were lucky to get a table. We were 2 adults with a 3 year old & ordered the cream tea, crab sandwich, victoria sponge cake & strawberry milkshake. The food was freshly made, scones still warm & the crab sandwich was beautiful filled with plenty of quality fresh crab meat. The cake was scrumptious & our daughter had the best strawberry milkshake I've tasted in a very long time made with ice cream & plenty of cream, delicious. Staff were warm and welcoming & we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family & friends.

Wonderful little tea room near the sea but that is about all that is small about it: the excellent crab sandwiches were generously proportioned and on lovely fresh bread; and the tea came in a pot so large you needed two hands to lift it! The tea cups, on their saucers, were probably twice normal size too. Tasted good too. Highly recommended.

Tried lots of cream teas (as you do lol) across both Cornwall & Devon and this is far far superior to any we've had previously. We also shared a local crab sandwich which was equally amazing!!!! Very friendly and welcoming and to our little dog too!
