Really unexpected delight- you are spoilt for choice in St Ives for good food but this is a lovely find. Small menu - nothing you will find elsewhere and really special - happy to accommodate kids by changing the menu slightly or in our case cooking bowl of pasta with home made meatballs. Bravo tea room - really lovely grub.

Had a lovely Cornish cream tea, gluten free home made scones and Tregothnan cornish tea the other afternoon. Been back for dinner this evening, local fish and meat, seasonal veg and great deserts. Highly recommended.

We had a weekend in St Ives and were recommended the Tea Rooms. The food was spectacular, so tasty, different combinations and imaginatively put together. It has been a main talking point of the trip since coming back and would recommend the The Tea Rooms highly.

Every year we visit Cornwall and every year we make a point of visiting St Ives for a stroll on the beach and then a cream tea at this lovely little place. We travel all over Cornwall every time we are on holiday here and we wouldnt dream of having cream tea anywhere else. The staff are always happy and... More

We stopped by and sat outside for a quick lunch and drink. The good was very good and the staff friendly. The prices were very reasonable. Great to watch the world go by even on a quiet Monday in March.
