Lovely cream tea in a lovely setting

After walking the full length of the promenade, myself and my baby girl stopped for a cream tea. Delicious fruit scone and tea and the setting was very quaint and friendly. Would definitely visit again if ever on holiday that way again.

WWII setting, bunting, music, looks goods. Tea flavoursome. Eccles cakes disappointing. No currants, tasted more like dates crushed up. Staff ok, pleasant enough. Sunny day when I went so sat outside. No bowl for dogs but staff were accommodating to a couple who sat near me with a dog. Clean. Not sure where the loo was though!

Desperately seeking a cup of coffee found this little gem whilst strolling along the sea front. Excellent choice of food and drink, with lots of lovely seating outside. Tried the scones with the cream tea - amazing! I split a fondant fancy with my boyfriend, which was homemade... The best fondant fancy I've ever eaten! The only thing that let... More

I had heard that the Merrivale Tea Rooms catered for coeliac's so I thought I would just pop in just to have a quick look. I was presently surprised ! The selection was very impressive... Gluten free sausage rolls , Cornish pastys , battered fish , chips , scones & a good range of delicious looking cakes . After being... More

Went here for lunch. Boy what a lunch it was. Sandwiches were brilliant plus they come with salads. Excellent service. Staff very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very clean.

My first visit with friends and grandchildren. We arrived to an already shambolic situation, with one visibly frazzled male member of staff and a long queue building. (It was the busy Easter weekend for goodness sake...and only one member of staff serving???). Customers were already complaining and the gentlemen in the queue who was in front of me, had been...

Lovely tearoom, very busy but the Stafford efficient. Great selection of cream cakes, and fresh scones for cream tea. Good value for money. Limited seating inside but due to the good weather we enjoyed the outside area.

Just made our annual trip to the fabulous Merrivale tea rooms. This is the highlight of my Dads holiday. Chris as always makes us welcome and is an excellent host. Last year there were no custard slices left when we arrived and my Dads visit wasn't quite as enjoyable. Chris asked Dad to call in advance this year and the... More
