Scones and views to die for! We had a table overlooking Lynmouth, the view was stunning. The scones were huge - fruity and crumbly, so tasty! Staff were friendly and helpful. Everywhere was spotless

You should go because if you don't you are missing out on a unique little tea room that serves great cream tea (cream first as you are in Devon) in a unique location.

This was our first visit and we can't wait to go back! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The views are simply stunning and the giant scones are definitely something to write home about! The best scones I have ever had in my life 😀

food locally sourced and all home cooked on the premises. How they do so much in a small place never ceases to amaze me. Even the views are mouthwatering and you can eat in or out and watch the world go by in the form of passengers waiting for the cliff railway which is right next to it. Reasonably priced... More
