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

Only has a tea but gently complained it was 'rather tasteless' but I was told rather abruptly by the manager that it wasn't tasteless but that I meant it was 'not to my taste'. I know what I meant! I have had hundreds of cups of tea in Cornwall and Devon and this was tasteless! I was offered an alternative... More

Dear Poetrypls I agree that you gently complained about your tea saying that it weak and tasteless. In return I gently, not abruptly as you state, asked if you had let it brew and stated that I did not feel the tea is tasteless but it probably is not to your personal taste. The tea I use is locally produced... More

Light fresh salad and crisp fries perfectly complemented. Would definitely go back as the cakes looked very tempting but alas no space on this visit. Only reason it gets 4 not 5 are... More
