“Mrs Grumpy's tea room”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Sadly we didn't make it into the tea room because as we parked we were accosted by a woman shouting at us from the tea room door about parking in the tea room car park. Sadly this put us off going into the tea room and unfortunately gave us a negative view of Exmoor.

Our car park is a large car park fronting the road and opposite our tearooms.
When we see people parking and then going to the Pub next door, we politely ask them to move there car.
If they are deciding whether to go to the Pub or come to our Tearooms just pop in and tell us. We do understand.

“A Cream Tea escape from the rain”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Dropped in with 4 friends at about 1530 to escape the rain and have a bite to eat. "No, it's not too early for tea, come in." Cream tea was traditional and the scones were very light. A fair selection of cakes and a good strong pot of tea with a jug of hot water to allow second cups! Decor may not be to everyone's taste, but it is spotlessly clean, seats are comfortable and well behaved dogs and children are made welcome.

“Lovely quaint friendly tea rooms”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Stopped in for lunch on a thoroughly wet miserable day. Lovely warm atmosphere, good home made food at a pretty good price. Hot drinks were tasty and the chilli was excellent.

“NIce friendly establishment.Good food,”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I liked this place when went in for lunch with my wife. I Live in & work around Exmoor and try to pop into the local placces to eat and have a coffee! It make the money go round our lovely place. I had a really nice ploughmans salad. A lovely cup of fresh coffee and dessert afterwards. I believe the owners of then are now gone and I have not been in there since. However I am aware that who ever is now running the tea rooms are doing well. Have not heard anything ontoward.
