After a blustery day spent walking on the beach at Bude and along the cliffs at Sandymouth, it was so lovely to relax here in such quaint surroundings. I felt like Miss Marple as I used a tea strainer for my loose leaf tea! There were fresh flowers on every table each of which was different from the next and... More

Nice surroundings like walking back in time. Friendly staff. Everyone in my party had a small cream tea and the scones were huge. A nice touch was being able to chose your jam from bumbleberry to rubarb and ginger. Enjoyed by all and will certainly return when we can.

These tea rooms are so pretty,the staff are friendly and helpful and the food was lovely...BUT....a pot of tea is £2.55!!!!!!!! The same price as a fancy cappuccino! This is the only reason I won't go back.

Having, unexpectedly, found ourselves walking one of the more "challenging" sections of the South West Coast path we stopped here for a break and made it our turn round point. Fortunately it's only a short walk from the path. Due to the brilliant weather we were lucky to be able to sit out in the pretty walled garden. Staff were... More

As a family we visited the tearooms after reading the recommendations and realising it was in our doorstep! We weren't disappointed! The afternoon tea, baguettes and Cornish pasty were freshly made to order and delicious! The staff were welcoming and friendly - even giving our dog Cornish pasty flavoured dog treats! Definitely worth a visit if you are in the... More

We found the menu confusing! The afternoon tea was £25 for 2 people and you could. Choose 2 cakes, but you had to have the same sandwich fillings. Also there was only half a scone each which we found a bit portion controlled. The fruit was lovely, but on the whole an expensive tea. Not very good for children. We... More

After a lovely walk along the coast we came back to our car and thought we'd pop into the Rectory Farm for a quick cream tea. And oh my aren't we glad we did. I love a good cream tea but this was something else. The scones were perfect (and huge one was more than enough per person). Clotted cream... More

We staggered in off the sw coast path and enjoyed a good strong cuppa and piece of cake in the sunshine with the dogs. We liked that they gave us a large jug of hot water to top the pot. When the sun is n' t Inside was delightfully decorated with pretty cushions and highly polished furniture
