“Lovely Tea Room, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stopped off here on the way home. The place looks really nice from the outside and we chose it in preference to the National Trust place next door as it's independently owned. Building looks really old but has actually been re-built since the flood in 2004. It's a very good re-build and inside there are photos of before and after the flood which was interesting to me. We had a cream tea of which of course there are many in Cornwall - the scone was tasty and nicely warmed and delicious. The tea was also good. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and what made the visit good was the friendliness and cheerfulness of the staff. We only wanted 1 scone each as we weren't that hungry - the waitress was helpful and sorted things out in the most cost effective way. Would recommend for a cream tea in a beautiful location.

“An Absolute Gem”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had the best ever crab sandwiches, with the freshest of granary bread and succulent crab which had been swimming around in the sea that morning, deserving of the highest praise! Scones were warm and newly baked, cream and jam aplenty. Such a pretty venue, friendly and efficient staff, waitresses in smart blue and white seaside stripes. Stunningly rebuilt after the 2004 flood, this originally 14th Century building is worth its weight in gold!

“Delightful little cafe”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The harbour Lights sells the best coffee in Boscastle - according to my wife, and she has tried quite a few! The foods not bad either, a good selection of hot & cold snacks.
Many an afternoon has been spent here in the garden, with the dogs, watching the world go by, sipping on a beverage.
Very friendly staff. Well worth a visit.
