The best cakes and cream teas in north Devon! We loved our experience at the Corn Dolly so much that we asked they cater for our Wedding last month. Our guests are still talking about the very yummy Bakewell tart – this was a favourite! Thank you – we will be back soon. Kerry & Garry

Visit the beautiful market town of South Molton, and after visiting the brilliant market and the town, pop in for amazing food. Afterwards explore the fantastic woodlands for a wonderful walk.

Popped in planning on an English breakfast, but instead opted for smoked mackerel with a mint and gooseberry jelly. Glad I did as it was excellent.

Lovely quaint tea shop serving a variety of snacks and home baked cakes. Breakfasts, and lunch menu available with some great choices. We had the cream tea and it was fab! Big scones, lots of cream and jam and a pot of tea. The youngest in our group had the Bo Peep Cream tea, which included jelly & ice cream... More
