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.

We visited Dolly's for Saturday lunch just before Christmas and found it to have a very interesting array of furniture, fixtures and fittings with a wonderful atmosphere. We were served with delicious food and a fine selection of gins. Can recommend.

Brilliant Gin bar. We didn't have any tea, or cakes but they looked great. Naver through gin could be so good,so varied or well made.

I went here with a friend on a midweek night out. Such a beautiful, quaint place to enjoy a drink and bite to eat! Their choice of drinks is brilliant, especially if you like gin and rum (not together!). I tasted Kraken rum for the first time and had a slice of ginger cake. Both were excellent. The rum was...

Fantastic place to have tea or something stronger and relax. Really friendly staff and friendly dog. Afternoon tea is tasty and didn't have to wait too long. Bathrooms are clean and you can actually wash your hands without having to touch a door handle on the way out. Only downside is it is not accessible to disabled people.

Called in for a late lunch while on holiday in Cornwall, I must say it was a place after my own heart, the food was great and my cocktail in a teacup was perfect.

My wife and I visited Falmouth for a last minute staycation at the end of September and we happened to stumble across Dolly's tearoom. From the outside it would be very easy to miss as it is just a door with a staircase leading up to the tearoom on the first floor. Inside the main room was arranged by rows... More

Popped into Dolly's for a drink pre dinner, to find a quaint step back in time establishment. The menu offers tea, cake and tapas dishes. They have 71 gins to choose from and a good range of cocktails served in a teapot. Mad bonkers but worth a visit.

Popped in for some lunch following daughter's graduation, ordered sandwiches, toasted tea cakes and scones with drinks. Food tasty, staff friendly and lovely location and atmosphere. Even the dog Hebe visits your table and makes friends with you. Would definitely visit again when in the area xx

Visited Dollys on our last night in Falmouth, what fun and the 'G & T's' were the best ever. We also enjoyed a selection of Tapas all served by lovely friendly staff. Thank you.
