Thought the other tea shops in South Molton looked a bit uninspiring and we were going to give up when we spotted the Corn Dolly in East Street, a little bit away from the very centre of the town. Glad we did. Enjoyed tea (a very generous pot for 2) and excellent home made cakes - a raspberry sponge and... More

A lovely and friendly environment to eat and drink. A great menu for adults and children with fantastically quirky names for the dishes. I had their cheese scone and it is the best I have ever tasted.

Wonderful polite staff, lovely pot of tea and a 'Kings ransom'. A dish which I can highly recommend to any fan of strong cheeses. Everyone should try this cheese lovers treat once.

We have visited the Corn Dolly for many years and the same high standard applies today as it did then. This visit we ordered sandwiches which were beautifully presented and the second time had scones & cream, very yummy. Every time we have visited, the Corn Dolly has been extremely busy with a big local presence as well as visitors.... More

Walk round this lovely unspoilt town in Glorious Devon, check out the little local shops and the very interesting museum then you are ready for coffee and a - well I just have to say - YUMMY teacake - both the largest and best I have ever had, dripping with butter whilst enjoying a splendid cup of cofee after coffee...

Corn dolly is a lovely place to go for a wide choice of teas and yummy cakes and light lunches, highly recommend the cream tea which is perfect after a day out in south Molton and children are also welcome which is great as we have 2.
