We went for the gluten-free cream tea (which was excellent) and had the bonus of sitting in their garden with a great view of the ruins. Very rare I praise National Trust - but well done!

We made a special trip to Corfe for the cream tea at the tea room. They have a good selection of freshly prepared scones and pride themselves on food ingredients being locally sourced. The cream tea was delicious but a bit on the expensive side...More

I guess my staple diet during days out is a good old jacket spud. We had a good snack here and we always expect to have good service and value at NT eating places. Not surprisingly, it's right by the entrance to the Castle and...More

We were pretty hungry and needed to eat fast with two starving granddaughters. We ordered and sat outside under umbrellas and the food arrived quickly. Great sandwiches, coronation chicken and egg salad, and potato leak soup. All delicious. Beautiful setting with a relaxed atmosphere.

Went on a rare sunny day during our trip to Dorset, sat outside in the garden enjoying the sunshine in the shadow of beautiful historic corfe castle and enjoyed a delicious cream tea. Very nice and would definitely recommend.

I had my first gluten free cream tea !! What else can I say?? My partner had a regular cream tea which he enjoyed. The cafe was very nice but busy.

They are definitely allowed in the garden. I did ask if dogs were allowed inside, they said they were, preferably if it wasn't really busy in there. On our visit it was packed, lots of queuing to order food. Very nice tea... More
