Lovely Tea Rooms

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Ilfracombe, we had a lovely lunch of toasted sandwich and panini with a great cuppa which were freshly made and flavoursome; all very reasonably priced. The staff were lovely and friendly, chatty but not intrusive and the cafe was clean. This is a lovely... read more

There is a wide variety of food and drink offered at this cafe which sits on the corner of a car park on the way to Watersmeet. We arrived late in the afternoon after a long walk and were treated to a welcoming cup of coffee and tea. Returned the next day for a cream tea and were equally delighted... More

We arrived here on a chilly January morning after a long drive, hoping for some local hospitality. The welcome was frostier than the weather and if we weren't in such need of a drink we would have walked out again. We waited a good 5 minutes before anyone appeared, then when she did eventually appear the woman serving was rude... More

We had need to leave our holiday early and were heading out of the area at around 0830, but in need of some grub first. Why is it so hard to find anywhere open in this area at this time? We had already scoured Lynton, which was dead as a doornail, so headed down the hill and spotted this little... More

Quite possibly the best cream tea we had during our week in the area.It was reasonably priced too.All of the other places had large queues but this quaint little tea room with outdoor seating was extremely quiet.The girls had a hot chocolate with cream on top whilst we had a pot of tea and the scones as well.Very good deal...

With so many little cafes and restaurants offering pretty much of the same fare, we opted for this one since it was in a pleasant position and wasn't too crowded. Really excellent cappuccino and a very acceptable freshly made sandwich with no ostentatious or frilly adornments. Prices were very fair and reasonable in comparison to some of the other places...

We ordered a cream tea & a sausage roll - despite being the only customers in I was told to get my pot of tea off the counter and collect my food (despite it being table service). The sausage roll was dry and old - goodness knows how long it had been kept warm in the heated vitrine. The scone... More
