Like other reviewers, I went in search of The Tea Room because of its Trip Advisor rating. I had a perfectly pleasant visit but would struggle to rate it as very good or excellent, although equally I have no complaints. The scones were nice, although the drinking tea was probably more remarkable. It was extremely busy the day that I visited, which in turn seemed to limit the service provided because staff were rushed off their feet. A problem with the till meant that one member of staff was tied up with serving the ever increasing queue of people waiting to pay, which was obviously unfortunate in an already busy and limited space! I would happily return - I would also happily try other places.

My mother and I went here for a cream tea, and we were in heaven. Prompt and friendly service, warm scones, lots of cream and jam, and all for a reasonable price. Lovely place- wish we had had time to go again!

This is the best tea room in St. Ives! The cream teas are delicious with warmed scones, clotted cream and jam. There is also a good selection of different teas to try. They also do light lunches and sandwiches which are delicious.

It is always difficult to eat out when you are a coeliac sufferer (gluten and wheat free diet).This tea room has it all. From the board outside it boasted gluten free food which is not seen in very many places and not expecting much I enquired what foods. Sandwiches, cakes, pastries, scones, you name it it seemed they could do it! The food was delicious, the service was first class, especially Simon who was most informative and the prices were very reasonable. So all you gluten free sufferers next time in St. Ives head for this lovely tea rooms and you will not be disappointed.
