“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

This cafe is amazing, do not pass it by. Lovely friendly staff and the scones are to die for, in fact all the home baking was. I like the idea of having small boxes of toys and books for little ones to keep them happy during their visit. Unfortunately our stay in Benderloch was short but we did visit every day at some point. We loved everything about it - please don't change a thing.

“Well worth visiting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2011

My wife and I have been visiting Ben Lora for many years now while on holiday in the area. Ben Lora Tearooms are conveniently situated in the centre of Benderloch and has a car park. There is always a very warm welcome from the owner and staff alike. The food is of an excellent standard, reasonably priced and nicely served in a bright, clean and cheerful atmosphere. To be highly recommended for just a drink, light snack or full meal
