Description: Dolly’s is a tea room and wine bar in the centre of Falmouth which opened in July 2011 in one of the most beautiful rooms in town. During the day it is a traditional tea room serving illy coffee, teapigs, cream teas and cakes. It then transforms in the evening to a candlelit wine bar serving delicious tapas, wine by the glass, jug and bottle. Cocktails are served in teapots and poured into vintage teacups with ice cubes in sugar bowls. Furnished with chapel chairs and reclaimed tables it has a very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. It is also dog friendly and Hebe, Dolly’s yellow Labrador, is a permanent fixture.

Really liked the ambience and retro vibe. Great music. Bit disappointed in the food. The croque monsieur wasn't, it was a toasted sandwich but a nice one. Husbands turkey sandwich was processed meat! Shame because we really like the place and the drinks were lovely. Wont eat there again but will drop in for a drink.

I've been looking forward to Miss Dollys for quite some time. Some friends had been there for a hen party and loved it...and I'd heard great reviews for the cocktails. So, with great anticipation and a big smile on my face I walked in with two friends...only to be met by a sullen waitress who barely could be bothered to... More

We stumbled across Dollys while visiting my son at uni for the weekend. We could have easily missed the doorway along the High Street advertising their menu but so glad we spotted it. We slipped in for just a g&t and found it an absolute delight, with quirky 1940s style decor and vintage paraphinalia. We were greeted with friendly staff... More

Went for dinner, had just a few plates from the mezze selection, more than enough for a light dinner, exquisite gin served in fine glasses. Cant go wrong.

A lovely afternoon tea with lashings of jam and cream. A hidden gem of a place with at last count over 31 gins!

Wonderful Edwardian interior, enjoyed at night with some 1920s music in the background, we were hoping for a seance to top our evening off! There was no seance but the atmosphere was still excellent; friendly staff, great mix of customers and.....THE GIN!!!! Oh.My.Goodnes. Delicious variety on offer from all round the country and beyond, the best tonic (not a 'You... More

I would just like to say that we must have been served by the same person as the previous writer. Made us feel very unwelcome and it was supposed to be a treat. There was some really awful music playing for ages. A women with a shrill soprano voice and I thought it would never stop. The tables were not... More

We popped into Dolly's a few days ago for a cup of tea on our walk through Falmouth. We'd never been to the area before and the signs outside intrigued us so we went inside. After heading up the stairs past the quirky tea cup tree, we weren't sure where to sit and a lovely young waitress quickly cleared a... More

We were given a very warm welcome the minute we stepped into Dolly's..This being our first visit, we decided to try some of the wonderful gins on offer.They were indeed delicious, very inventive and beautifully presented. The restaurant was busy even though it was a Tuesday evening in late September. Unfortunately, we were unable to stay for dinner but we... More
