Tearooms don't get any better than this

We ate breakfast here for the three days that we were camping in Porlock. Kids and dogs were welcomed with open arms - the dogs were even given biscuits! Breakfasts were superb on every occasion and the owners were friendly and efficient, still finding time to chat whilst rushed off their feet. If... read more

Fantastic food and service, on site dog whisperer and cream teas to die for! Highly recommended, ignore the idiocy of reviews about dogs, you're in the heart of Exmoor, dogs and people live and work side by side - if you don't like dogs stay in the cities!

Visited tea shop on a very busy Friday morning. All the tables were full and we squeezed into a table for 2. The owners were very busy serving breakfasts and apologised to us for the delay. We were happy to sit with our pot of tea and wait for our breakfasts. When they arrived they were delicious. The owner then... More

Definitely recommend checking out this tea room. Delicious cream teas, with their special whortleberry jam. Exceptionally friendly owner and staff who will welcome you and your kids/dogs

My family including our 8 month old dog visited this wonderful tea shop earlier. We were met by the most welcoming owners who spoilt us and our dog. The place does not have dog hairs, dog smells, or anything remotely unsavoury due to its dog friendly status. It is refreshing to find such a place where an entire family, including... More

We stopped off in Porlock for a quick look around the shops & a cup of tea. There seems to be a lot of choice however we sort out the whortleberry tea rooms as they had such good reviews. We were not disappointed! Service was swift and the owners very friendly. There were 3 of us but only I wanted... More

Fantastic full English breakfast!!! My rest of the family had breakfast sandwiches which were equally delicious. Staff are really friendly and good service too. I would recommend this place.
