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

This was our second visit, we took my parents to see the Church and Hawkers Hut, we parked by the tea rooms knowing our walk would see us return, after a walk along the cliff top we returned and enjoyed a late lunch. Some of the party simply had Tea whilst my teenage sons both had sandwiches and my father... More

My husband and I enjoyed a tasty cream tea here. The tea rooms are perfectly located just off the North Devon coastal path & are very old & full of atmosphere. The scones were some of the best we've tasted & there was an extensive selection of teas to accompany them.

Wonderful walk around the coastal paths and brilliant views. Do visit the Morwenstow church adjacent to the tea room. The tea room has got a very good selection of teas and the home made cream cakes etc. are to die for. Will be coming back just for the cream tea next time.

I have never had such a gorgeous cream tea, the scones were still warm and so light and tasty. My partner had the wild boar burger which he still hasn't stopped raving about (considering we visited Morwenstow in September!) The tea rooms were really clean and had oodles of olde world charm. We would thoroughly recommend this tea room to... More

Stopped for lunch after doing spectacular circular walk with our golden retriever. Contrary to previous reviewer, our dog was made most welcome but, to be fair, the tea rooms were quiet at the time. The tearooms have a lot of history attached to them and the food and ambience were spot-on. Fantastic original stone floors and settles. Local produce and... More
