We have eaten in seven restaurants in St Ives thiis week and... More

The title pretty much somes it up. We thought we would try their new evening service out having been attracted by the menu which whilst not expensive looked well thought out. The food quality was superb and we could not fault a dish from starter to dessert, but and it's a big but for the price they charge they have... More

A really charming little place. We went there for cream tea, which is definitely recommended, and enjoyed good service with friendly staff. Well worth a visit!

Went here having read a review of their cream tea and have to say it did not disappoint. Lovely freshly baked scones with the most amazing fruity jam and indulgent clotted cream. Brilliant friendly service and even made a special trip back the following 2 days for brunch. Eggs benedict served on cheese scones. I thought it sounded a bit... More

I have seen the Tea Room on Tripadvisor and had lunch there because of the good reviews - and I was not at all disappointed. The Homity pie was delicious - but while I was there I noticed the evening menu. I asked about this and the lady explained they had only been doing it this year - in fact... More

Popped in here for a cream tea after a day at the beach in St Ives. Superb, authentic, locally sourced scones, cream and tea. Well worth a visit.

Friendly atmosphere and good food. We had a cream tea which was very good apart from the tea! The shop promotes its real leaf tea, but it was not what you would expect. The tea is brewed by the staff and then decanted and strained of all leaves into tea pots for service. Our tea was very weak and disappointing.... More
