Ordered cheese and baked beans, which came with a side salad. Don't know which potatoes the use but it was the best tasting potato I have had for a long time. The simple side salad was more than simple, roasted butternut squash added an extra dimension. Would eat here again, can't wait to try something ellse on the menu.

We loved the carrot cake, but were slightly disappointed with the lemon drizzle. The sandwiches and salads were fantastic. Great service. They didn't have pizza when we were there, which is unfortunate as the pizza ovens were there and the menu was tempting. Maybe next time.

Always polite staff, cosy seating and lovely food and tea. Always delicious scones!!! Decor is also lovely and can usually find a park near by. Priced reasonably and even when tables are reserved they've gone out of their way to squeeze me in!

Popping into Chagford for a break on the long drive from Penzance to London. A lovely brunch, with a full breakfast for my wife, bacon baguette for my daughter and poached eggs on toast for me.

We visited as a large group. I would recommend booking ahead for this as its not a large cafe. The pizzas and salads were good. Initially the pizza order was incorrect but was rectified without any fuss. However this meant that some if the group were served later than the others(with slightly less well cooked pizzas) We didn't have pudding... More

Visited on a lovely warm sunny afternoon. Sat on the great tables out front. Only had coffee so won't comment too much but the service was friendly and accurate. Coffee was really nice. All in all a great way to spend 30 mins.
