“Very friendly and a different experience”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Visited here last Sunday afternoon, the weather was beautiful.
It was lovely to be able to sit outside, enjoying our cream tea, and to be able to bring our Boxer dog along too.
Viv is a really friendly lady and her cream teas are very yummy, plenty of cream and jam and the scones were very light.
Great location, great place, and great staff.
Loved your chickens too, they are definitely pampered hens!

“Viv's cream tea shop and pretty little fairy garden, beautiful.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

My family and I have been lucky enough to have a yummy Cornish cream tea here at Viv's.
The service was fantastic and welcoming, the beautiful tea set and stand the scones arrived in made it feel special. There is a small sweet fairy garden set in the trees at the bottom of the garden which my children loved. Tasty food, friendly service, good portions and parking all made it a place we will be returning on our next trip to Cornwall. Try it! Viv and her family were lovely xx

“Quirky location and good traditional cream tea”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Influenced by the fact that David Mitchell had been snapped visiting Viv's, and as it was on the way between Wadebridge and St Minver (where we were staying), we went to Viv's on a humid Thursday and enjoyed a fabulous cream tea there. Wonderful family-friendly atmosphere and setting and would recommend it to anyone. Just don't ask for Indian coffee as my eyes betrayed me...

“Lovely :)”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Visited today with my four year old daughter, having passed it twice a day every day but never been in!
We were met by a friendly gentleman who told us to find a seat and he would be over, ordered a savoury cream tea, amazing chutney and cheese. My daughter had a cookie which was demolished and she then requested a scone as well (also demolished) I was offered a free refill of my coffee and service was very attentive.
My daughter proclaimed that the fairy garden was "wonderful"
And she could eat the scones and cheese everyday.. High praise indeed from my fussy eater :)
Met Viv herself on leaving, friendly lady, showed us the new chicken arrivals and the new cabin which would make an excellent private party venue.
We will be back soon. :) keep it up.
