Had lunch here, the Crab sandwich was very cheap, but a little bland. The scones were good though, and the quirky front garden is good fun. Well located within the town.

Enjoyed a very naughty cream tea here with friends on Saturday afternoon! Very friendly welcome, nice chat about the area with who I assume was the owner. Quick but not rushed service & a cream tea to die for - huge, fresh, tasty scones - yummy. Highly recommended. Would definitely return if in area again.

Visited many times. Always left happy. Obliging staff. Will happily visit again and recommend. Home made cakes most enjoyable.

When visiting Ilfracombe we had our first 'cream tea' in this tea room. We were super impressed, tea and coffee was delicious, and the scones were lovely and fresh with delicious clotted cream and jam. Definitely worth visiting.

We stopped in for lunch on a rainy afternoon and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The garden is kept very well and covered during the rain so we could still eat outside in the torrential downpour that happened to be going on. The food was of a very good standard - excellent cake, kudos there.

The staff were excellent - very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. If something wasn't available, good alternatives were offered and even mix and match elements of the menu that you wouldn't usually think of.

Would definitely go back
