We arrived at Shellys at 12.15 for a soup or sandwich and a cream tea, as we had read such a lot of good reviews. We entered the tea shop which was empty with a hallo from the kitchen area which wasn't a good start, we looked at the menu and my wife chose home made soup so she asked what soup was on the menu and was told" we ran out of the soup last night I'm just about to make some more" at 12.15!!.so back to square one, we then chose sandwiches and were about to order when a voice from the kitchen area said "we haven't got any cheese" so that was the last straw we got up and left, service was terrible, there wasn't any! So I wouldn't recommend this tearoom to anybody. Ps.we had wonderful cream tea and fantastic service, nearby on the cliff top.

What a lovely tea room. Had a lovely afternoon tea when we visited St Margaret's - this little please was hidden away. I'm glad that we stumbled upon this place, recommend a visit for a relaxing afternoon tea with friends. Service was prompt and the experience was enjoyable

Stopped in for a coffee and a piece of cake.

Same friendly welcome. The coffee was very good and the chocolate cake even better.

Tremendous value for money too.

Having read the recent reviews on Shellys we felt we must try it, we have to say that this wonderful tea rooms is even better than suggested, great location minutes from the bay, we had jacket potato`s which were huge and oven baked so crispy skins followed by a cream tea, this was so huge we had to ask for a doggy bag, you really must visit this tea rooms if you are in the area
