“Heavenly cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Delightful tea shop, the selection of homemade cakes made for a difficult decision as they all looked delicious, once you decide on your cake you then are given a lovely menu of different teas and coffee to choose from.
We were disappointed that we didn't have time to sample the savoury menu but this now gives us a reason to return.

“A traditional tea shop in the centre of South Molton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Whilst visiting friends in the area we were taken for afternoon tea to this very traditional tea shop. We enjoyed the freshly made cake and the service was very good

“Great food and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

We came to South Molton in the pouring rain, parked outside Corn Dolly and went in as there were so many people eating and drinking. The staff were very friendly and the food - bacon sandwiches and prawn jacket potato, was superb. Specialist teas, coffees and tisanes are on the menu at very competitive prices. So much nicer than the usual coffee chains!

“Good food rude staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

On my first visit we actually stuck around to eat and the food was lovely. But must say the staff weren't very friendly. So thinking we might of got them on a bad day we went back a couple of months later. Unfortunately on our second visit we were reminded of the sheer rudeness, and this time walked out. Totally put off wanting to give them any business, if you like good food and can tolerate the unfriendly miserable staff then give it a try.

“Lovely Food & Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

If your in the vicinity you must visit. Excellent freshly prepared food and a cabinet full of home cooked cakes. Not necessarily for those who are looking after their figure, but then again you are in farming country. Seriously there are a wide choice of salads available also. Enjoy.
