We had been recommended to visit the Clock Tower Tearooms so after an excellent coastal walk on my daughters birthday we paid a visit. Fantastic location and even though it is still only February we had lunch outside in delightful sheltered walled gardens. The sandwiches were a good size and well filled, lots of variety on the menu. The staff... More

Booked a table for two for Sunday lunch. I ordered the Shepherds Pie and my wife wanted a roast but with a veggie option. There was no nut roast or similar on offer but the lady who served us (and the chef) did all they could to provide a tasty alternative. Both of our meals were very good but what... More

Best tea and cake we have had for a long time. So often cake looks tempting but disappoints by lacking any real flavour. The white chocolate / butterscotch and toffee apple were full of flavour, as was the tea, served with plenty of milk and extra hot water.

Was amazed that this place was open when we visited Sidmouth last week as we assumed it would be seasonal but no, they are only closed on Christmas day.

Each time we come to Sidmouth we start or finish our visit with a snack or light lunch here, Always good, great selection, and their cakes are something else, especially the Rock Buns, just sublime. A visit to Sidmouth isn't complete without calling in to the Clock Tower

Fantastic little place. Staff were very polite and helpful. Choice of cakes were exceptional. Slices were huge. Views from upstairs seating were spectacular even on a cold winters day. Gardens were lovely. Would return without a doubt. Reasonably priced too.

Thank andrewdiana
