Description: Dolly’s is a tea room and wine bar in the centre of Falmouth which opened in July 2011 in one of the most beautiful rooms in town. During the day it is a traditional tea room serving illy coffee, teapigs, cream teas and cakes. It then transforms in the evening to a candlelit wine bar serving delicious tapas, wine by the glass, jug and bottle. Cocktails are served in teapots and poured into vintage teacups with ice cubes in sugar bowls. Furnished with chapel chairs and reclaimed tables it has a very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. It is also dog friendly and Hebe, Dolly’s yellow Labrador, is a permanent fixture.

Have had some excellent times in Dolly's - beautiful tea and cakes in the day - wine/cocktails with tasty tapas type food in the evenings - the lamb tagine is perfect. Fun wine list, lovely staff, great attention to detail and of course Hebe.

The baked goods are tasty, cocktails are very small (apparently the same amount of alcohol just less juice filler) but delicious.
Good but won't rush back

Thank you very much for your wonderful comments. Celeriac and pear soup is one of our favorites too - along with mushroom and apple!

We have another sold out Gatsby night this weekend, and we are looking forward to dressing up again!

Hope to see you for lunch again soon. You must read our new Jasper Conran book...

Just above the bookshop in the center of town, Dolly is the ideal getaway place: relaxed and familiar atmosphere, perfect to enjoy conversation with some friends on a lazy Sunday afternoon while enjoying a nice scone and tea. Then, as the evening progresses, nimble on some tapas or enjoy the day soup. It is not the place for the biggest meal of the day. The local sketch class and book club I believe hold their sessions here too.

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your experience here.
We take a lot of time and care sorting through all the best vintage music to help make the atmosphere enjoyable.
As well as our monthly book group and sketch club, we have a knitting group too. All these groups have a great turn out with a mixture of ages. It is a great excuse to enjoy a good glass of wine!

If you want to relax in gorgeous surroundings then Dolly's is ideal. I went with some work friends for wine and cocktails and it was absolutely lovely - would definitely go again. We also had some snacks and the food is good quality, small dishes, which is perfect when the main star is the cocktails :)

Thank you for praising our cocktails and tapas. We're glad you enjoyed your visit at Dolly's. It's great to see the excitement each time we get a new novelty teapot out for our customers.
Each cocktail has been specially designed for Dolly's, and we use the very best alcohol and homemade syrups. We're planning new additions to our cocktail menu soon, so watch out!!!

We find our small dishes great for sharing and socialising, so we're glad your group enjoyed it.
