The cafe is a gorgeous old stone cottage in the woods. Dogs are very welcome at the numerous tables outside. It can get very busy - and then noisy with all the kids - but we visited on a Friday afternoon in termtime, so were served quickly. Very friendly staff and excellent cakes. The lunch menu looked lovely and we... More

Scones were beautiful and warm from the oven, loads of cream and jam! Absolutely yummy, and beautiful surroundings too. And we were really pleased to see they've taken on board previous feedback about covering up the cakes! All good!!! :-)

Had a very tasty lunch here, nothing too much trouble. Personally i don't like thick bread but on sandwiches but my grandson was happy and devoured his! Good choice for all. Lovely setting, often pop down just to walk in the woods but thought this time we would treat ourselves and certainly weren't disappointed.

I really love this little coffee shop/restaurant and the cakes are delicious but I no longer have them, because they are uncovered on the counter, where people are walking by and are literally inches from them.They are also open to flies etc. Having said the above this really is a lovely little find and I go here with my partner...

It's tough to beat this place for a non-seaside setting in Cornwall. Great for kids too, with a playground next door, not to mention the beautiful forest all around. Menu was small but varied and everything very fresh and natural. Would visit again without hesitation.

Ive had a few cream teas over the years but this was definately the best. The scones were just the right texture and warm, plenty of jam and cream and the tea was perfect, served as leaves in a pot. Well worth a visit.

Headed here for mid morning food. Cream tea was first class, scones fresh and warm. Cakes were superb as were the savoury dishes. Great location nestled in the forest. I'd recommend a visit.

We had a superb lunch at Woods Cafe. The staff were all young and superb. The food was great (we had sandwiches), well priced and arrived in good time given that it had obviously been freshly made. Lunch was so good that we didn't have room for the amazing looking cake. This problem was solved by a one hour detour... More
