“Friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Called for a mid day snack, poor day so sat inside, two very cosy front rooms, the staff were very welcoming and service very quick. The local pastie was very good along with the crab sandwich, all locally sourced and fresh. Not a tea room fan, but would call again here.

“Excellent cream tea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Had afternoon cream tea with the family there. The scones are fresh, moist and delicious, so much so that the clotted cream was almost an after thought! We sat outside; the views are stunning. You can see the little harbour and the sea. Spectacular views. The service is quick and courteous. The other place to get tea is up the hill a bit (New Inn, I think), and didn't look nearly as nice. Highly recommend!

“Cottage Tea Rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

My son went there with a bunch of new mates he made when he joined the local teenagers for quay jumping. They invited him to come to the tea rooms afterwards and he said it was very good.

“A lovely hot chocolate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Walking down the steep slippery pathway, we felt we needed a sit down and something to drink. The garden was shut due to the weather. It was quaint inside and service good.

“A nice place with pleasant and accommodating service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

A nice place for a good cream tea with views on the terrace overlooking the sea. Pleasant and accommodating service. We went in October but I can imagine that it would be very popular in the height of the tourist season. .
