The most delicious cream tea! Scone was warm, so light and fluffy but still buttery. Hot chocolates were also a real treat. Some really creative flavours of scone on the menu, and an option for vegan friends. Also scones available to take away. Would definitely...return!More

We were expecting something special from this scone and tea room but it was pretty average. Scones were quite dry and the tea wasn’t great. Too many wasps and the young girls serving weren’t particularly welcoming.

Tempted by the goats cheese, rosemary & honey scones advertised and served as a ‘Chèvre Tea’ for £6.75. Firstly, it was only one small scone (most places do 2), it was a plain sweet scone with a 1x2cm piece of goats cheese on top and...served with onion chutney, not the apple as advertised. Server really not bothered at all. Not good value or a good experience, sadly.More

Treated ourselves to an afternoon tea which was delicious. Highly recommended although the staff were not as friendly as we'd like.

Menu showed Vegan cream teas with, scone ,Jam and Vegan cream. On first visit staff said they had ran out of Vegan cream and would get more for the next day. Arrived the next day and different member of staff said they had NEVER done...Vegan cream teas, even though it is displayed in their window and menu. Staff member very unhelpful, especially when this village needs trade, as in recent years the tourists are not coming like they used to. Avoid !More

Hairs in the drink (possibly dog or cat) and used dirty spoon given. Scones small and not delicious either. Definitely not the best tearoom we visited in Cornwall.

I’d read good reviews of this place and when we passed on our way out of Polperro we saw the sign saying apple scones and blueberry scones, which sounded delicious, so ordered one of each to take away. When I went to eat my apple...scone, the first thing I saw was a short hair, looked like a cat or dog hair, on top of the scone. I scraped that part off but decided to eat the rest. Then, right in the middle of the scone, I pulled out a darker, longer hair. I really struggled to eat any more. It’s a shame because the flavour was nice and they could have been delicious, but the hair was just too off putting.More

Louise the owner makes an amazing variety of scones . They are made on the premises and are usually still warm and fresh out of the oven . We had lunch there yesterday and all the ingredients were fresh and delicious . It’s a very...humble frontage but the food is second to none . There is only one problem . It’s somdelicious and we keep going back . Then we have to compensate by getting a good walk in afterwards .More

Great cream tea sat in the sun. Making one cream tea gluten free was no problem and I was able to swap my tea for an iced coffee as it was sunny.

Set low expectations and be prepared for some over pricing. The sad scone (only served 1 here!) was more of a Welsh Scone and it was served cold. Pot of tea with espresso sized cups and sauces. Sadly the toilet was a health hazard with...rusty bins and nothing to dry ones hands with. Devon cream teas seem to be winning on our CreamTea experiences.More

They opened an hour later than advertised. And yes, we waited the full hour. There are no other coffee/scone alternatives in Polperro, so who could blame us? When they finally opened, the lady was rude and overcharged us. And to top it all off, the...scones weren’t even delicious! Take your custom elsewhere.More
