Lovely building and setting. Just right. Cool inside on a hot day. Freshly baked cakes, good food all round. Ample parking close by. Maybe take an ice cream out by the river. Often a couple of classic boots moored up.

No need to say too much here. Other reviewers have hit the nail on the head. This is maybe 50m from the tidal river Tamar. Better maybe at the top of the tide. A beautiful wooden stretch of the valley. The spread cluster of stone buildings and the little docks are well preserved and kept and feel just right. The tea room on the ground floor of the Edgecumbe, which we think was once a pub are easy going, well decorated and the food and staff are just what you hope for. We got a table close to the front window with a great view. There were a number of customers and other wandering around outside but the ambience of this National Trust property was lovely and worth the drive into the country and down the winding narrow lanes.

We visited here for a light lunch or a cream tea. After ordering we did wait a very long time and there were lots of complaints about the service.
the problem was that there was a function upstairs and coupled with the national trust free weekend offer of which this bistro is run by, maybe more staff could have been drafted in?
I must say that the food was worth the wait.
We had a plate of make your own sandwich ingredients: cheese, coleslaw, beetroot, onion chutney, salad, butter and a warm roll.
Together with a pot of tea was £6.20 which I felt very reasonable.
Unfortunately due to the long wait we didn't have time to sample any of the lovely desserts.
The interior is very olde worlde and quaint.
It is very small and split into two rooms.
This makes it cosy and intimate although we did end up sharing a table with strangers but we didn't mind.
We took a stroll along the quay which was really picturesque. The mill and water wheel are also worth a visit.
will visit again but hopefully it won't be as busy next time!!

We tried a Cornish Cheese tea for a change and were delighted. The cheeses were davidstow cheddar and Cornish Brie and the cheese and chive scones and red onion marmalade were perfect with them. The children opted for the carrot and coriander soup with a roll which was very tasty. The cakes were very good with a good choice. The fresh spring flowers on the table were a lovely touch.

Pleasant spot. Ideal after walking down through Cotehele gardens or along the paths by the river or inland amongst the woodland. Friendly staff and a good selection of snarky and tea time food. Just ice cream if you like. We hear on the grapevine that there is talk of opening as more of a conventional restaurant in the evenings. No idea whether it is just a proposal. It if it were to come to. Something then this is a delightful spot for a balmy evening with views inside or out perhaps during the spring through to the autumn or beyond. Like this place, hope its future may include longer hours and more food.
