Good value cream tea

We were walking by and decided to call in for a cream tea. There was an offer of 2 cream teas for under £7 and it consisted of 2 home made scones for each person (fruit or plain) jam, cream and a very large pot of tea. I have not tried any of the other meals or snacks so my... read more

Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. The best quality ice cream in the area of Cornwall best value. You get more than a scoop . I'll be there again next year. Top class place.

We came here a few years ago and had a terrific steak but, unfortunately, it is now just a café and the steak bar has closed. It is still worth visit, though, for a quick drink and/or bite to eat, with great service and a nice view across the road to the harbour.

Good scones and tea, lovely view from the first floor seating area, but very noisy, the table was sticky (yes, I know that jam and cream are sticky, but if the table is dirty, I wonder what the kitchen standards are).

This café has a varied menu from light snacks to full meals at cheap prices for the size of the serves. Service was a little slow but we chose a peak time for lunch.

Had an order of 2x cheese,ham and pineapple panini and a turkey, stuffing and cranberry panini. Excellent taste, and served quickly. Cappuccino was 'the best ever' according to one of my group. Recommend without reservation. Staff very friendly- thank you.

I usually get a pasty for my lunch at Drecklys which is locally made and a very good pasty. My wife and i had a cream tea today and as my wife dosen`t drink tea they made her a cup of coffee instead. The staff were polite and friendly as usual. The scones were home made and very tasty and... More

I visited yesterday for lunch & had lovely panini. When we arrived we were informed there was at least a 25 minute wait for food which was fine so we sat with our drinks & watched the world go by.
