We walked from Lynmouth to Watersmeet and back, upon our return to Lynmouth we felt we deserved some refreshments. We found our way to The Coffee Mill were we enjoyed a well deserved cream tea. This tea room has seating inside and out. The outdoor seating is in a nice garden. A lovely cream tea at a reasonable price.

Unfortunately very poor.

In short sub standard and massively overpriced. When... More

No hot food other than pasties or soup. We did have a pastie which was more pastry than filling. It was a nice place to sit though.
