“Hopeless - but saved by a pint!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went for cream tea on the last Wednesday in August and they had sold out at 3.20pm. Hopeless! Somebody needs to get a grip!

However, the walk down to the cliffs and along the headland was beautiful and a pint later at the Tinner's Arms more than made up for the lack of scones!

“Come very early if you want a Cornish Cream Tea”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Several advertisements around this little village point one in the direction of this very relaxed and friendly backpacker hostel and cafe for cream teas. Well, it's the only place for miles that offers them ... But what a disappointment when they've run out of scones on a Wednesday afternoon by 3:30 pm. Everybody in the queue wanted scones, but we all had to have stale tasting and overly sweet British cakes. Friendly staff, very relaxed atmosphere, but no business sense and poor baking skills. Very disappointing after a long, fabulous coastal path walk.
