Visited this tearoom twice in the week I visited Devon ! The scones were fabulous and the black currant and apple cake was to die for! My husband had a cream filled doughnut and it was amazing ! Can't wait to go back

Do stop for the view rather than the customer service which is a little Fawlty Towers. "Don't ask for a second cup as their answer is likely to offend" - so said the sign. How offensive would their answer be and how many people as...More

We stopped here for refreshments after the steep climb down to the harbour. There’s an outside terrace with stunning views and the cakes were delicious and inexpensive.
