Popped in to sample the cream teas. Having read some of the reviews on here and already sampled the delights of Charlie's Boathouse, expectations were high. We weren't disappointed. Yummy!

And is a small place so cannot but not only hear what their saying which isn't right when you want a quiet afternoon out...stay open later olease

After having such an amazing experience at Charlies Boathouse for dinner we decided to try the tea rooms. We wanted a cream tea and werent disappointed. A huge pot of boiling hot tea accompanied our scones,jam and clotted cream. I am very fussy about scones and can honestly say how perfect these were............and no horrible aftertaste of baking powder !!... More

Fab fab fab. Clean, welcoming and good food. Cakes looked absolutely delicious but we were already stuffed with large portion of scrambled eggs and salmon. Cinnamon on my coffee was delicious.

Superb coffee wonderful cakes with very good service.The only downside is that the premises is too small.Being so popular means that you cannot always get a seat inside,which does not matter if the weather is good,otherwise you either wait or go elsewhere.The parking outside is free!

Just reopened after refurbishment, this cafe is located in the old local post office. Offers good coffee, snacks and huge slices of cake. It was too early to eat cake so opted for door step slices of toast with Cornish butter.All very good. Located on the main road 250 yds above the harbour roundabout.
