A lovely little spot.

Exmoor is a hidden English gem. A beautiful mix of coastline, moorland and wooded valleys. Quintessentially English. After a stroll beside a steam or a romp over the hills what could be nicer than a cream tea. Set in a lovely little hamlet Horner Vale Tearooms hits the spot. Lovely tea and scones... read more

Speaking as a local customer for 40 years with the past owners . We and others are so disappointed at the overall changes to the tea garden . The food is substandard and cream teas too.The very essence of a tea garden is what it says and needs to be enjoyed .poor standard I have to say.

We were parched and looking for a waterhole when we came across the Horner Vale tearoom and what a surprise it was. An idyllic setting and a great cup of tea to be had.

Scones tasted as if they were a couple of days old. Just enough cream for four scones. Did have home grown strawberries as well. Overall I have had better cream teas with in a few miles of here.

Sadly on our recent visit this Tearoom was closed but our previous visits have been good with fresh cheese and a wonderful salad fresh home made chutney and warm rolls. Always a place we must visit when in the area but this year we were there before they were open. Sad for us.

This is my favourite tea garden - proven by the fact that we took all of our wedding guests for a ploughmans and cream tea on our wedding day. The menu isn't very extensive, they stick to what they are good at - generous sandwiches, a superb ploughmans and delicious home made cakes, the scones are the best you can... More

There are two tea rooms very close together the reason we chose this one is... More
