Popped in for a drink and scone. Lovely cappuccino, piping hot. Scones were served with very generous pots of jam & cream and were light & delicious. All ingredients are locally produced. The only complaint from my hubby was that the scones weren't very big, although we did order a single scone each - the cream tea option comes with... More

Really friendly staff, beautiful red pepper soup and BLT made with amazing bread and great ingredients. It's a real pleasure to find somewhere that offers to refill the tea pot with hot water for nothing. Thanks for a lovely time and look forward to the next visit.

A very friendly tea house indeed which uses teapots that don't run everywhere and English china cups and saucers.

Lovely staff. Delicious home made cakes including delicious Cornish cream tea. They serve Tregothnan English loose leaf teas. I had the afternoon tea which was beautiful. Decor is modern with a vintage twist. Clean and comfortable. Recommended!

A small but very welcoming tea shop set just of the main high street in Wadebridge. All freshly prepared by very friendly and welcoming staff. We went for a lunch time sandwich and ending up having cream and scones as well. Wonderful loose leaf tea with strainer is on the menu grown locally is an ideal accompliment for lunch.

We had a lovely afternoon tea at the tearoom. The lady who owned the tea room was polite and helpful. Food and drink was also great.
