When ordering a cream tea, check the menu first as there are many options! The menu at Rectory has a large variety of gluten free options which was lovely to see, as this is so often overlooked. My tip for a table is to avoid the crowded front area and head through the gate to table 18, which sits on... More

It's a great place to stop for lunch on a good day of walking. The food was excellent and must have been freshly prepared. The location is excellent with a host of directions to walk off in after lunch.

The tea room is certainly off the beaten track but is well signposted on the A39 so you shouldn't miss it.Set beside a National Trust designated area of stunning coastal walks this place is very popular with walkers and families looking for somewhere less commercial and more surreal. Their cream teas are wonderful with a lovely choice of jams and... More

We have just spent a lovely couple of hours at this quintessentially English Tearoom. We had afternoon tea for 4 which consisted of sandwiches (of our own choice), fresh cream scones, Cake (of our choice), quiche and crisps - all topped off by fresh fruit. We then decided to partake of a delicious ice cream each (choice of flavours). This... More

A lovely tea room a bit off the beaten track, near a rugged stretch of the coastal path. We had Cornish cream teas with scones. They found decaffeinated tea for one of our party. We saw others in the tea rooms eating light meals which looked nice. Good atmosphere and quirky furnishings inside, tables outside in garden. They also sold... More

Very quaint tea rooms, lovely garden but we ate inside to cool down and avoid the wasps. The staff were efficient and friendly and the food was really good. Watch out the portions are huge, we shared a ploughmans and a cream tea and it was very filling.The scones were so good we got some to take home. One of... More

We visited especially for their famous Cornish Cream Tea and were not disappointed. We had it between us, as the scones are rather large and supplemented it with a another pot of tea. Our son had a huge slice of chocolate cake which was delicious and a glass of milk. We did not find it expensive and thought it was... More

A big jam on the M5! Twisty country lanes to avoid said jam and tail-backs in Taunton! Stuck behind slow lorries on the Atlantic Highway! Stress guaranteed! We then got lost looking for Morwenstow. We then walked into this wonderful place. Excellent service on a very busy day, the waitress even warned us that our order might take a while.... More

It is like stepping back in time when entering the tea room and the little village of Morwenstow. the place is decorated out in all old fashioned furniture and is very welcoming. We went for a late lunch and found that we were lucky enough to get a table. (I think it maybe best to book a table in the... More
