Service understood and great cream teas....

Are provided in this little tea room, an oasis in this overpriced village, a great pot of tea with freshly baked scones strawberry jam and clotted cream, this is what memories are made of, pleasant service friendly staff with terrific views of this quaint harbour and cove.

We stopped for coffee, and we are so used to chain coffee shops we asked for latte, which they do not do, so we settled on a pot of tea and a cafetiere of coffee, which were both great and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful. This tea room is a great part of the experience of visiting... More

Although Clovelly doesn't have a lot to shout about, and I won't shout about this, but it was certainly a nice meal. With a good view of the sea and a sweet policy-'strangers are friends you haven't met yet' as well as reasonable prices, we thought we should stop here instead of the other restaurant further up which is also...

It was a lovely afternoon last Sunday warm enough to sit in the outside... More

Lovely cottage tea room and our food was enjoyable. Prawn baguette was lovely and fresh and my wife had the vegetarian option which she thoroughly enjoyed(as did my son). Reasonably priced too. Ate outside where the view was breathtaking.

We went to Clovelly on a beautiful October day, sunshine, still, warm and perfect, we loved our wander through this lovely village and decided to eat lunch in the Cottage tea rooms. We both had a vegetarian pie, it was terrible and probably microwaved, salad was iceberg lettuce and a scattering of onion, and worst of all our cold drinks... More
