“Friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Set in a fabulous location. We enjoyed a lovely cream tea and they also do very good veggie cornish pasties. Staff were friendly and helpful. Added bonus is that they act as a small local art gallery too and show work by local artists for sale.

“After a walk on the moor looking at the sites a great place for a cuppa.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

I hadn't been to the Hurlers stones in Minions since....... well best I don't go there and leave that to your imagination.

The moorland is spectacular walking country and at around 1000 foot A.S.L it can get very hot and/or blowy. So a good cup of tea (or a beer) with good stomach lining snacks is always welcome.

The Hurler's Halt (named after the famous prehistoric stones near by) is on the bend directly in front of you as you approach from the general direction of Bodmin or St Neot. Parking is available and it is easy access for those with disabilities. It reckons to be the highest teashop in Cornwall and despite there being two others in the immediate vicinity I'd say it wins by a couple of feet!

The food is simple fare but well cooked and well presented. I had a beautifully cooked jacket spud with mature cheddar cheese and beans, a pot of tea and, a bit on the greedy side, I followed it up with a toasted tea cake.

My wife plumped for the standard cream tea of two scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam.

The proprietor has a quirky ( and right up my alley ) sense of humour ans his wife simply smiles the smiles of "Oh dear he's at it again!"

Make sure you ask him what the wooden sign hanging from the ceiling just inside the door means :-) Don't worry it's not rude!

The toilet facilities easily accommodate a wheel chair which is nice to see in a smaller establishment.
As a hiding place out of the burning sun (like today) or from the wind and rain it's well worth a visit.

There are also a cottage and a converted barn available for holiday lets.

Well worth a visit if your in the area or diverting off of your route to go and check it out

“Pleasant licensed caff in good walking area.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

Liked it. Clean simple friendly. In one of highest villages in Cornwall with Minions stone circles and Cheesewring close by. Menu much too big for higher quality but ample selection for the snack and stomach stuffing meals you need after an arduous day in the fresh air. Seems to have connection with a local artist and a writer so there is a partial gallery feel. We had a good time. It has a pleasant easy boing feel. The owners seem keen to please. Felt welcome rather than tourist rip off fodder. We'll be back.
