One person in the party didn't like cinnamon toast so asked what else they could have and the waitress said a scone. So the high tea came out and they had changed 4... More

In the past I have enjoyed their Afternoon Tea but as I was on a low carb diet, I opted for a meal from the menu. I found it very ordinary and the vegetables were extremely uninteresting. It is a 'cosy' establishment, with ta les very close together and is very busy but my visit was completely ruined by a... More

Oh, and if you can take your eyes of your cream team, there is a view of the Babbacombe downs (sea view) which is a lovely... More

Having been recommended a visit by numerous friends I decided to try the afternoon tea here today with the other half. We were not disappointed. It was very reasonabley priced at £21 for 2 very large sandwiches (beef and coronation chicken) on thickly sliced fresh granary bread, thickly cut hot cinnamon toast, 2 deliciously warm scones (Plain and ginger) served...

My husband and I booked here for an afternoon tea for my 60th Birthday in April. On arrival we went into the tea room and no one acknowledged us, although there were staff at the counter and walking in and out to the tables outside. In the end we told the waitress at the counter we had a booking and... More

Huge portions of cake and the Xmas decorations were so beautifully done, they looked fab! It was packed out so it's obviously a very popular cafe/restaurant.

Came here with my husband and although all the tables were booked the staff were very accommodating and squeezed a table in for us. There was a large choice of scones/cakes and sandwiches and different cream teas. The scones came warm with plenty of cream and different flavours of jam. The tea was loose leaf and plentiful with a jug... More
