“Cream Tea, with only the clotted cream edible!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

It's not often we allow ourselves to give in to temptation to a cream tea, but, when in Rome (actually we were in Devon). We popped in to this cafe for some indulgence only to be presented with a microwave heated scones (I even heard the ping and thought surely not!) a carton of jam (made in Turkey) and clotted cream. My partner had to send her latte back because we think she forgot to add the coffee. If we hadn't have been so hungry, we would have walked out. Our daughter picked the best thing, a milkshake.Don't think I need say any more.
