Fantastic cream tea

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.

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...

We were recommended to go here by friends so we went. There is lots of parking on the street. Very friendly staff and accomodating as we had a toddler. I got my order mixed up and they changed it. We went for lunch. Portions generous. Clean food. Loved the sald dressings. Would definitley recommend.

This is our second visit here and we actually stayed in a B&B 200 yards away. Again we went as a family for a sort of late breakfast / brunch and it was well worth it. As usual there was a queue forming shortly after our arrival and it seemed to be mostly locals, which indicates to me that standards... More

I visited The Corn Dolly twice in my recent stay in South Molton (that's how good it is). The exterior belies the size of the interior and when you enter it is a bit like a cosy Alladins cave with several different seating areas but not at all cramped. The menu is extensive and did leave me changing my mind... More

Eaten here several times now. Always busy when we've been but we've always felt a bit cramped. Good food, fair portions, well prepared and presented.
