A unique and quirky little tea room tucked away above Falmouth Bookseller. Delicious lunches and handmade cakes during the day and cocktails in the evenings. We have not made it in the evenings yet, but usually stop by for lunch whenever we are in Falmouth. We are always made to feel very welcome by the owner, staff and dog. A... More

Having been here before we knew that we would get a nice cup of tea and good cakes. Sure enough we got our order and everything was fine. Neither of us is a dog lover but we don't object to others fascination with them. We did however feel that the dog belonging to the establishment would not cause us grief.... More

I was recommended this cafe/restaurant by friends & it more than lived up to expectations! A gorgeous setting - cute window boxes with flowers, old school jazx music and vintage furniture really set the scene. The gin menu is extensive & they have a good range of food for all times of the day. I had a cream tea, which... More

If you love to try different gins then this is the place to go! The cosy and comfortable room makes it a great place to sit and relax whilst sampling the vast choice of gins all served chilled over ice. The staff are welcoming and very knowledgable. My husband have visited many times and it really is a must when... More

Visited here recently and had the deluxe cream tea- food was all very nice (pot of tea, salmon and crab sandwiches, small slice of cake each and a scone each). So much loveliness, hence the 2 dots rating... Missing the other 3 dots for the rest of the experience. The older waitress really was miserable and we felt like we... More

Lovely little tea room. Home made warm scones, delicious . Ample clotted cream and jam and more if required. Good pot of tea. Only stopped for afternoon tea but rest of the menu looked good, and all appeared very reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. Upstairs, hence not wheelchair suitable.

Step ack in time when you enter dolls, what a lovely relaxing place to drink or eat. The gin menu is amazing but still daunting even for a gin fan, the waitress talked us through it which was really helpful, the food menu looked so good I wish we had not eaten, great drinks service and ambiance

Dolly’s is a tea room and wine bar in the centre of Falmouth which opened in July 2011 in one of the most beautiful rooms in town. During the day it is a traditional tea room serving illy coffee, teapigs, cream teas and cakes. It then transforms in the evening to a candlelit wine bar serving delicious tapas, wine by the glass, jug and bottle. Cocktails are served in teapots and poured into vintage teacups with ice cubes in sugar bowls. Furnished with chapel chairs and reclaimed tables it has a very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. It is also dog friendly and Hebe, Dolly’s yellow Labrador, is a permanent fixture.
