“pepsi and wasps”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Sadly they don't serve diet coke so I had to drink diet pepsi. The view of the castle is lovely. sadly there were wasps out and about but they did have jam traps set up on the wall.

“Fabulous cream tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Really good value cream tea. The tea room is adjacent to the castle. We sat inside due to wasps. The staff are really friendly and bring your food to the table for you. The scones were huge with plenty of jam and cream. My youngest daughter had a massive slice of chocolate cake.

“Top Notch Cream Tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Well, you have to have a cream tea while in Dorset, don't you. It was delicious and they were very happy to substitute my husband's pot of tea for a cup of coffee at no extra charge.

“Lovely tea room, could not enjoy the view though”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

This was recommended to us and while it was great value and great food, there were far too many wasps outside to enjoy the view of Corfe Castle (which is why we choose to go there), while this is not the staffs fault it was just annoying. Ordering was a bit slow and chaotic but the price of a scone and cup of tea was quite reasonable. The scone is not a fruit one but plain, i am not sure if they had sold out or only do plain scones but a fruit one would have been nicer.
