Lovely tea room not far from SW Coast path

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... read 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

My birthday tea was made all the more special by the staff and food at this wonderful place! Such a treat! Gold stars all round! What an absolute joy! Thank you I loved everything! The staff are glorious! I want to lay down on the floral chintz window seat and sleep forever! Amazing! Xx

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

Whether we have come in for a light lunch or a cream tea for a treat, Rectory Farm Tea Rooms has never disappointed. Gorgeous cream teas and the more unusual savoury tea with local cheeses, sandwiches and ploughman's lunches have always been delicious. It is certainly not the cheapest for lunch in North Cornwall but the rural setting is pretty... More

A sign on appraoch says "open daily" [which being interpreted means "every day"] but on a bright sunny Sunday when there were plenty of people about [you are ahead of me!] it was closed without explanation. How well the British independent businesses do tourism out of season! I have eaten here before and it was excellent so if you cannot... More

If you're in the Bude/Clovelly area and looking for an old-fashioned café/tea-room, they don't come any better than this. You'll need transport - it's well off the beaten track - and there are no bargains on the menu. Everything else - the pretty gardens, rural setting, roaring log fire, friendly welcome, relaxed ambience - is impeccable. Just don't expect a... More

We were spending a fortnight near Morwenstow, and having seen the menu (and the prices!) thought we would save it until late on in our holiday, and then ended up going on our very last day! Yes, it's expensive, but the food was fantastic, and there was a really good choice for the gluten free vegetarian teenager too. The scones... More
