We visited the café as my boyfriend and I had never stopped at it before. The food was great value for money as well as quality. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and our orders didn't take long to arrive at all.

The 2 plain scones were lovely despite not being home made, which to me was no problem, and what was nice about them was that they didn't crumble when you put anything on
them and you get a generous serving of jam and clotted cream!! Ideal to keep you going whilst out shopping and fills you up until dinner. Tea was lovely and the pot gives you around about 3 cups.

Boyfriend had a hot chocolate with cream as he doesn't drink tea or coffee and had a slice of chocolate sponge which looked extremely rich but lovely.

For 4 people the cost came to about £3 something each, which in terms of quality and service like this you can't go wrong especially in such a homely little café. Will come back again if we're in the area!

A hair in the tea cup!!!!! Yuk!

Very old fashioned the decor needs a major overhaul

Ordered the cottage pie it was vile grey looking watery very small portion no gravy tasteless veg

Service by the younger staff very good cheerful smiling polite. The more mature lady who served us didn't smile or even said hello! Very grumpy and unwelcoming

Definitely wont be back. Seemed to attract an older element or people down in their luck- I would imagine after half an hour in there they would be suicicidal!

Much more tastier food and politer staff mass produced at sainsburys

On a day trip to Bideford we went into this super little cafe for a cup of coffee - and a piece of very yummy cake. After a walk around the town we decided to go back for lunch. Lovely meal, friendly service and a nice atmosphere.

Stopped off for a bite and a coffee, different from our last visit a few months ago but it still has the lovely tea room charm that first attracted us to it. Good friendly service makes it a pleasurable experience. A nice place to bring our visitors for a little old fashioned treat.

this is a local spot for me with easy access in the town centre- they offer a really good choice of fresh food on the extensive menu and the service is brilliant. I would recommend this as a great value stop for all ages
