“Cake Heaven!!”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

We called in at the Tea rooms after a refreshing walk to and from the beach, we were met with a friendly greeting from a lovely lady, we ordered our drinks, coffee and hot chocolate, and then we were strong armed, in the most nicest way possible, into sampling the cakes, the ladies had Lemon Curd cake.................declared it to be lovely!
We had a delightful chat and a view of the cakes on offer, many more visits will be required! Thanks to the ladies we now know what a Whortleberry is and the bushes we asked about, they are Mulberry!

“Wonderful tea garden ...”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

... with cakes to die for - you will have to make a second, third, fourth ..... visit! Excellent food, coffee and service - a 'must' if you are in and around Porlock! Be prepared for a REAL slice of homemade cake!

“Dog Friendly”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

Okay so we visited this with some trepidation on a wet miserable afternoon some 10 days or so ago

We had been going to Kitnors for many, many years and had always had a superb meal or just a refreshing tea. But we knew it was under new management so we were unsure, but anywhere for a drink, we thought, on such a wet day.
Now we have three golden retrievers from 6 months to 10 years so we found shelter under the lean to and settled down, only to realise that our eldest had disappeared. However, she was "rounded up" and brought to us by one of the new owners as she was about to cause mayhem and havoc in the kitchen. Expecting to be evicted we were pleasantly surprised by the friendly welcome.
Even more surprised by the fact that the teas were as good as always and the garden view delightful as always.

Anyone who can accept 3 retrievers is going to get my recommendation and deserves to succeed so all the best to the new people we will be returning soon. (Promise we will keep the old gal under better control she has got a bit wayward since the new pup arrived)
