“Cream tea overlooking Corfe”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We enjoyed a delicious cream tea whilst sitting in the gardens area overlooking the castle. The scones were beautifully cooked and very reasonably prices. Very enjoyable visit highly recommend.

“Delicious cream tea!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Having just visited the castle we needed to stop for lunch. Decided a cream tea was the order if the day! Tried a pub opposite these tea rooms but it's cream tea included fruit scones, which my kids hate. We were glad this was the case because it made us try these tea rooms, and boy were we glad we did! The biggest, most delicious plain scones with lashings of clotted cream, and nice tea. One of my sons doesn't drink tea and they were happy to swap for apple juice. As that was all we had I can't comment on the rest of the menu, but it's a lovely place, with tables outside looking up to the castle, as well as inside. Only downside would be only one toilet for women and one for men. The ladies was actually a large room and I wonder if better use of the space could result in two - less queuing!

“Pleasant enough place to stop for tea.”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Pleasant tea rooms in an old building. A good place to stop for a hot drink and a warm up after the Castle out of season. Toilets clean and presentable.
