Having grown up in nearby Porlock & returning each summer to stay with family we ALWAYS walk over to Horner & visit Janet & her team for a cream tea. This place isn't trying to be trendy or cool, but if you want a lovely, lovingly made lunch or cream tea in the utterly beautiful surroundings of Horner valley then... More

I've been here twice in the past two days with two different walking groups and lived it both times - especially at the end of 9 mile walks.... They do lovely cakes and scones (I can vouch for the cheese scones and the lemon drizzle cake personally - both delicious) and the garden is delightful and beautifully cared-for. Plenty of... More

Had lunch at this real little gem of a tea room. Beautiful setting in Exmoor, woods, and the most wonderful range of birds all around us !!! Convenient little stroll fm the car park. Ate toasted paninis which were lovely. Limited menu, but everything we saw and ate ourselves looked lovely. Friendly staff. Definitely to be recommended.

Four of us had cream teas after walking the Doone valley. Two lovely fresh warm scones and ample cream & jam, for £4.95. The best cream tea and great value!

How disappointed we were to be told that the tearooms had closed for the day At 2.45 today Monday 11th April, as they had no customers. The sign in the car park read that it was open (this was half an hour after they closed) What a wasted journey at least the other 2 couples we bumped into in the... More
