Stopped in for a cream tea whilst we were visiting Boscastle. The Tea itself was lovely, it was proper Tea and the flavour was immense. The homemade scones were beautiful. Would highly recommend visiting.

Harbour light is the best place in Boscastle for lunch and cream teas. The coffee is superb and the scones are light and delicious. They also have an excellent selection of cakes and daily specials. Very clean a dn you cane see your good being prepared on site. We always visit at least twice when we stay near Bude

We stopped for a cup of tea and a cake which was very nice. The cottage is interesting as was completely rebuilt after the 20014 flood with pictures and information about this inside.

Fast service, great setting and good food, we had the soup, home made and filling. Prices were fair and seating outside or in which made it very dog friendly
