We were a party of 9 and were able to reserve a table. The food was lovely, good size portions and a huge variety. Service was friendly and well timed. All in all it is such a lovely place we went twice in a week!

There isn't anything about this place not to like! It is a quaint little teashop which has the best cream teas, cheese scones and homemade cakes I have ever had. Visited twice in our week in Devon. Yum!

Visited twice in one week - had to go back to sample more of the incredible cakes! We had lunch both times and in a large group of people, there were no complaints at all. The only difficulty was that we could not all sit together. We worked out that you could eat lunch at the Corn Dolly for 25... More

Lovely food and quick service. Really liked the layout as it had 3 dining rooms meaning we were able to keep the dogs out of the other customers way, it's after closing time and we're still sat here relaxing. Thanks ladies

We went for lunch. The waitress took the order and brought our drinks. One hour later she appeared to say that she had forgotten to order the food. We re ordered and 15 minutes later the food appeared. The chicken sandwich on white bread was on brown which was stale. The two tuna mayonnaise potatoes were barely warm with half... More
