Called in for tea and a light lunch and we certainly were not disappointed. I had the best camomile tea served in china cups with cheese scones, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and a delicious chutney. We sat in the window seat and the lady who welcomed us was extremely pleasant and friendly. Lucky people of Wadebridge having such wonderful tea... More

Stopped in here for lunch one afternoon and chose the toasties and milkshakes. Really friendly service and the atmosphere was nice with little tables for 2 at the front away from the hustle and bustle of the main cafe. Food was wonderful and the drinks were even better. We will definitely be going back here on our next visit to... More

Popped in for a drink and scone. Lovely cappuccino, piping hot. Scones were served with very generous pots of jam & cream and were light & delicious. All ingredients are locally produced. The only complaint from my hubby was that the scones weren't very big, although we did order a single scone each - the cream tea option comes with... More

Really friendly staff, beautiful red pepper soup and BLT made with amazing bread and great ingredients. It's a real pleasure to find somewhere that offers to refill the tea pot with hot water for nothing. Thanks for a lovely time and look forward to the next visit.

Just wonderful. This little place is magic on the taste buds and comfort to the tummy. A very friendly tea house indeed which uses teapots that don't run everywhere and English china cups and saucers. The food was glorious I enjoyed the cheese scones special - served with more than need cream cheese, mature cheddar, chutney, grapes and a few... More

Lovely staff. Delicious home made cakes including delicious Cornish cream tea. They serve Tregothnan English loose leaf teas. I had the afternoon tea which was beautiful. Decor is modern with a vintage twist. Clean and comfortable. Recommended!
