Chanced upon these tea rooms and pleased we did. Loved the fruitcake which is so often not sold in tea rooms anymore. All very traditional and sweet. Love the loud tick of the longcase clock. Takes me back in time. Good coffee and teas. Very...relaxing.More

My wife and I had lunch here today, while on holiday in the area. Such a lovely welcoming tea room. Tea with real china. Tasty toast, sarnies and wonderful cakes! A really heart warming experience, so badly needed in these difficult times.

Traditional tea room... excellent service and food spot. Nice to see a tea room as it should be. Dog friendly and COVID measures done very well. We’ll be back next time we’re in Porlock. Highly recommended.

Wonderful service and a charming tearoom, accidentally ordered the double scone cream tea and thought I'd have to take the other home but they were so delicious and light I didn't leave a crumb! A great range of jams and chutneys to take home too....Faultless cream tea experience!More
