Description: Refreshments served with a side order of spectacular views across Lynmouth Bay. Our Grade I listed building perched high on the cliff top above the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway is perhaps the most beautiful location for a Cream Tea in the Westcountry. We also offer a range of freshly prepared sandwiches, homemade cakes, light lunches and vegetarian options to eat in or take away; and of course we do drinks and freshly ground coffee too. To find the cafe use postcode EX35 6HW.

We visited on a very chilly February day, lovely hot tea and a warm welcome from the staff and resident dog. I enjoyed a bowl of some of the best homemade soup I've ever tasted, my othe half had a huge all-day breakfast and our young ladies had 2 lovely homemade pizzas. A little on the pricey side, but you expect it in this sort of location, and for the quality of the food we really didn't mind. Highly recommended.

Pleasant small cafe in an ideal spot for views. The food was all home prepared however a little on the costly side. I had a jacket poatato and cheese which came with a salad and a pot of tea which cost £9.20. Whilst the salad was nice there was a lot of fruit on it which I felt was over the top. The potato however was hot and well cooked.

Had lunch at this clifftop cafe next to the funicular railway. We both had the winter warmer special of soup (I had leek & potato), choice of hot drink (tea) and choice of cake (scone with cream and jam) for £6.75. Food was very tasty, service prompt and great views over the sea. Also nice friendly resident dog.

It's the first thing you see when you get of the cliff railway. A small cafe that was formally the old waiting room. There is lots of seating outside with a fantastic view down to Lynmouth and some of the seating is under cover. They proudly announce that all the food is made on the premises, apart from the bread which is collected from the village baker. We had the cream teas which were delicious.
