Lovely breakfast excellent value for money and a very warm welcome. The tea room opens at 8.30am were the other eating places do not open until 10am. Ideal if you are passing through, walking or camping in this area. Will be going back for more. The tea rooms are situated by the Top ship inn and the visitors centre. The... More

A charming little tearoom serving the finest teas, sandwiches and cakes. A full breakfast is served in the morning cooked exactly to your liking. Easy to miss, if you are driving down this steep hill in Porlock, but there is it at the less busy end of the High Street. Worth checking out, you will find the owners pleasant, helpful,... More

We almost missed this tea-room yesterday, but so glad we found it had a lovely courtyard. From the main street it looked a little dark inside, but the courtyard certainly made up for it, and the food was all really fresh and home-made. My daughter had a tuna/sweetcorn sandwich, which was a hand cut loaf with a huge filling, my... More

Popped in here for breakfast and so glad we did. A full English cooked to perfection with hot drink for under £5 - a bargain. The new owners are very friendly. We will be back!

We visited Porlock this morning after trying out a new bus time table. It was a little nippy so decided to visit the tea room as we had been there before & been satisfied. Today's cream tea which we could have shared was absolutely gorgeous & the wortleberry jam as good as always. Best wishes to the new owners.Cracking home... More

Visited here late morning and took advantage of the sunny little rear garden. A good variety of menu items to choose from. Scones were light and fluffy with delicious whortleberry jam. The cheese scones were equally good with cheese and chutney to accompany them; melted cheese an option. The tea and coffee were sufficiently strong and served in crisp white... More

Steve and Ann took over this quaint little tearoom in April this year and although they told us they hadn't changed the menu since taking over they have certainly put their mark on the place. They're very welcoming to both humans and hounds and it was lovely to be served with dog biscuits along with our tea! Our first visit... More

We found this little gem on our last day in porlock and so pleased we did! It was an awfully wet day and we were greeted by such a friendly warm welcome by the owners! They even brought out a dog bed when they saw our little wet pooch and dog treats! My partner had the ploughmans and I had... More
