Popped in for a cream tea and discovered the most amazing scones I've had on a while! Many other punters were commenting on them, I would thoroughly recommend a visit!

The cream tea was well worth the wait, the location is excellent, we sat outside overlooking the golden sands and blue sea of the harbour. The sun was shinning and it was a perfect spot for a cream tea.

We came in on a quiet day before the Easter holidays for a cream tea. Having read the reviews we were excited to try this place, but the service was incredibly lack lustre and the whole experience felt rushed and not at all special. The scones were nice and warm, but I've had better. I also thought that the crockery... More

Again, we weren't disappointed and were impressed at the friendliness of the staff and quality of the tea and scones. Been coming here for the past 5... More

While having a delicious warm scone / cream tea here, I took my first sip of tea and it was so tasty that I was moved to ask the owners what tea they use and discovered that they use loose tea from an award winning range. It was exceptionally tasty tea! Since been back for a savoury tart which was... More

We went here deliberately because of Trip Advisor but I can't help being a little disappointed. The food was lovely but the woman serving was a bit surly. The man seemed really nice and cheery but he wasn't serving us. The woman failed to bring everything we ordered and then overcharged us! My boyfriend paid and they just said a... More

Spotted this great place as we strolled around the harbour, it looked really inviting and didn't disappoint. Crab sandwiches for both of us. Service was very friendly and welcoming. I would certainly recommend a visit.
