Visited the Harbour Light Tea Garden recently and it was lovely. Food freshly prepared and really tasty. Excellent selection of homemade cakes (coffee and walnut cake and tea loaf very nice). Scones were also incredibly nice!! Good selection of food for the children too and even my fussy eaters... read more

Utterly gorgeous cream tea, good portion size, the best tea I've tasted, and good food for kids - children's portions are big possibly ideal for an adult lunch.

We received a warm welcome by the attentive staff. Our dogs received thier own treats served on individual dishes. Very welcome. The menu was good and our choices were plentiful and delicious. Service excellent and we will visit again. Well done!

We popped in for late afternoon tea on Friday with my two dogs, the staff were very welcoming to both us and our dogs, we were even given a small dish of dog biscuits. Afternoon tea was just lovely, of course we indulged in scones, clotted cream and jam :-). Very pretty cafe/tea rooms, definitely worth a visit.

Visited this café in the Easter weekend and despite it being a busy day we were soon sat at a table and served very quickly. The Carrot cake was divine and the Chocolate Easter Cakes were special too. The Cornish tea was fresh and everything was so nice and clean and well presented. A brisk walk over the headland followed... More

Can't comment on the food, but the coffee was tasteless, and the espresso undrinkable. Disappointing at any price, and not cheap!

We popped in a few times on stay in Boscastle. Bacon Bap and a nice cuppa for breakfast was spot on. Very friendly service, especially to my Boxer dog "Dave" A nice touch was the no smoking in the courtyard which made it a very pleasant spot. We finished our holiday with cream tea's before heading home. Highly recommended.

My wife and I have been going to the Harbour lights for several years now and always had a first class experience. On our most recent visit however we were very disappointed to discover you now can't smoke outside. Although I gave up years ago ( now only my wife smokes ), I feel this totally unnecessary. It is the... More
