What a beautiful place to have morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea, all served by lovely staff dressed in period costume. Proper old fashioned service and loads of lovely cakes and pastries to choose from. You will not be disappointed.

Tea was hot and strong, scones were fresh, jam and cream were plentiful. The staff were all very smiley and pleasant. I didnt notice if there was any wheel chair access, which could be a problem for some wanting to visit.

Was advised to visit by a friend who lives a Camelford. Have to say how very nice it was, a trip back to a bygone time. The breakfast was delicious as was the egg benedict royale. All in all a pleasant experience.

We love it here. Both the savoury cream tea ( with smoked salmon and cream cheese) and the standard Cornish cream tea are delectable. Best we’ve had in Cornwall. Also do other delicious food and cakes. Well worth a visit. Service is good. Not cheap...More

I am not aware of their rules on pets, but remember there are three flights of stairs with many antique and antiquarian items on the landings. Hope this helps.
