Popped in for coffee and stayed for cake. Really lovely and light room. Managed to get my work done using free wifi which was a bonus. Staff were really nice and helpful. Going back for more blueberry burst cake.

We stopped here on a walk up and around the cliff path. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The panini we had was tasty and perfect to share with a cream tea. Not too expensive and a lovely location.

Called in for coffee and a cake, coffee was good, very good selection of cakes, in particular gluten free which is great if you have a family member who requires this. Evening menu also looks interesting, we will be trying this on our next visit.

One of only a couple of places open for evening meals in chilly February. The glasshouse has recently changed ownership and name. The décor has been given a nice contemporary uplift, and the service more than matched our expectations. We both chose the Exmoor burger...More

The restaurant is beautiful, however the service was very poor. We are paying for the trendy surroundings with poor service and meagre portions. The waiter brought out part of the order before the rest was ready which meant that two of us finished all of...More
