Parked in Porlock deciding to have a snack lunch. Walked out of car park & faced a cafe which looked full & not too enticing - continued to walk through Porlock passing what we thought were a couple of dingy Tea Rooms and almost out the village just by the Post Office discovered the Whortleberry. Fantastic!! As we walked in... More

The owners really try hard to please, the breakfasts, lunches and sweets are excellent and reasonably priced, My family have been there many times as we often visit Porlock and we always visit.

We forgot Whortleberry's was closed Wednesday afternoons in October, but the owner was still there and happily opened up for us to have tea and cakes. A pretty tea room in the lovely town of Porlock. Tasy food and good pices.

We visited here late on Monday afternoon and were warmly welcomed. Scones were delicious! Whilst we were there it reached closing time, but the owner said that we must not rush and to stay as long as we liked. He went outside to bring in his board and another party of people asked if he was still open. We were... More

Stopped here yesterday whilst visiting Porlock. The owners are a lovely couple who gave us a warm welcome, which includes our dog, who was given a fuss and some treats. We sat in the courtyard garden (although dogs are allowed inside too) and had a cream tea. To sum up, reasonably priced delicious food and friendly, excellent service. We'd definitely... More

We went here and liked it so much we returned again. The Owners couldn't do enough to make you feel welcome. Food was excellent and they sell lovely jams & chutneys there too.

We had our dog with us so sat in the garden. Steve an ex wormwood scrubs prison officer greeted us and even had some biscuits for the dog. He has some great stories and really made us feel welcome. They have a fantastic cafe. I spied a lot of the food that came out and it all looked and smelt... More
