A great place to visit - a little gem. The food and service were great and in would highly recommend it if you are in the Crantock or Newquay area.

I had been told about this place and urged to visit. It's a great and unique place. You can eat and drink in the garden or in a small garden room which contains quirky items and a stash of interesting books and magazines. My wife was in her element in the white painted shed/room. She loved it! The couple who run the cafe are really interesting and we stayed for ages chatting to them. It's a lovely holiday experience. Sadly not open when we visited slightly out of season this year.

Came across this tea room whilst on a walk around Crantock village. Spent a very pleasant hour reading the papers and sampling the delights of this lovely place. Home made elderflower juice and a proper pot of tea in a lovely garden. The owners both popped out to say hello and chat and we were made to feel very welcome and not rushed at all. A lovely place to have a pit stop with delicious home made food on offer and very reasonably priced.

After a day on Crantock Beach we went off to discover the village including the old village stocks behind the church. Two pubs and a nearby tea room looked very busy and by chance, in a nearby lane but away from the hustle and bustle we spotted The Hevlas. It looked inviting and quaint from the outside, handmade signs beckoning us around the front to the back garden. We turned a corner and were greeted by a good afternoon from the owner. "Might we get a cup of tea?" I asked and he replied of course, "choose where you'd like to sit and I'll come over. There's upstairs on the terrace - that's boiling, or there's the Indian room under a canopy or this garden." We chose the terrace, a small balcony in the glare of the sun overlooking the lane but it was scorchingly hot. We ventured down steps into the Indian tea room. It was a lovely tranquil area with rattan furniture, oriental tables covered by a canopy tied to tree stump poles cemented into a patio which was adorned by emerald like stones at each intersecting corner. There was a selection of books and magazines including one of Cornish real life incidents including one about a shower of snails! We ordered two Cornish cream teas at £5.95 each, though as I can't do cream I had butter instead. There was a choice of plain or fruit scones and of jams - home made apple, a strawberry and a third. We opted for strawberry jam and fruit scones. We waited just a few minutes before a huge pot of tea made with three tea bags arrived, colour co-ordinated with milk jug and jar with tongs and classy Demerara cubes. The cream teas followed soon after each presented on a large slate - two large scones, a pot of jam, a pot of cream and a strawberry lightly dusted with icing sugar, the scones were moist yet crumbly, full of fruit and easy to cut. The jam was seedless but a good quality though not Wilkins' Tiptree. It was an ample tea and we each managed two and half cups of tea so as not to waste the pot. A visit to the loo led me to what appeared to be the owner's bathroom with an old fashioned free standing bath and a bowl containing cuttings of philosophical sayings directly in front. There were fancy soap dispensers and a hand towel. I had to examine back garden and found three or four tables and chairs generously spaced out and occupied by relaxing visitors. Flowers and trees abounded and the village church tower was glimpsed beyond the garden. The windowed shed had been turned into a summer house with couch and the green house too inviting customers to take tea. Stevie Wonder's As followed by Bob Marley and the Wailers' Exodus could be heard on speakers as I learned that The Hevlas name originates from the live music group the owners are part of. Even the business card is individual and creative, two words which sum up The Hevlas

We spotted this gorgeous little restaurant last year and booked to go last Sunday for a coral wedding anniversary meal. The owners are warm and friendly, the garden setting is magical and the food divine - what a little gem. Sitting up on the roof terrace watching the sun set over Crantock was idyllic.
