We were directed to the Corn Dolly by someone in South Molton we asked for a recommendation. It was a good call. For us it was cream teas all round and we were startled when they came. Triangular slabs of home made scone, still warm from the oven so wonderfuly fresh and crumbly. Oodles of Jam and lovely runny clotted... More

Having been here many times, we do know what to expect. The service and waiting times do vary, but on this occasion the service could not be faulted. The food is very good, if a little expensive as mentioned by other reviewers. The breakfast is £8.95 but this does include tea or coffee. Overall, recommended but I am aware of... More

Granny had a... More

The Corn Dolly, located on the main square of South Molton, is a true adventure in afternoon tea. Plenty of room for seating parties of all sizes in this warm, lovely tearoom with traditional wood tables and china service. The welcome is very friendly and prompt. The cream tea is monstrously decadent and you would be well advised to snack... More

We have been here a few times and find the cream teas are to die for, the meal menu is a little on the expensive side but food is nice!
