“strawberry sponge cake to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

This little tea garden is the perfect setting for a tranquil cup of tea. Fast service with a friendly owner who makes an amazing strawberry sponge cake, and he gave our border collie a biscuit too.

“Enjoyable Cream Tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Stopped off here with family for the cream tea. It was late in the day and they had run out of plain scones but the fruit scones offered as an alternative were very nice. Plenty of jam and clotted cream to go with them as well. Service was quick and pleasant. Would visit again.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

My wife and always visit these tearooms when regularly in Ilfracombe. Obviously a family run business, it is friendly, comfortable and very clean and the food is of a very high standard. Would recommend to anyone.
