Honestly, wasn't my first choice for late afternoon cake and drinks post castle visit. But another place shunned us, as were shutting early that day. So in a slight mood strutted down the high street and reluctantly ventured into King Arthur's cafe. We should have...just gone there first! Were made to feel so welcome, had a great selection of drinks (the Cornish ginger beer was amazing) and our questions over a cake selection answered without trying to upsell. After much debate, settled on a generous slice of the rhubarb sponge and sat outside in the late September sun and thoroughly enjoyed. Now just wish we'd had opportunity to return for a cream tea!More

We “fell” upon this cafe whilst walking to Tintagel castle , I had the steak pastor which was lovley, light and filling, along with the homemade coleslaw , which was fresh , my partner had the roast pepper and tomato soup and fresh bread, which...I tasted and it’s the best soup like that , that I’ve tasted, service first class and food very good , pop in and have a visit , you won’t regret it.More

Good service, polite and timely. My wife enjoyed the Cornish pastie. My two boys thought the cheeseburger was just OK, though I thought it was fine but nothing special. They no longer serve loose leaf tea. Clipper is pretty good as tea bags go, but...this management decision is a backwards step, hence minus 1 star. Since when has long-life bottled orange juice been described as fresh orange juice? Minus a further star.More

Visited King Arthurs Cafe on our trip to Tintagel and it was fantastic! The food was deliciously fresh, beautifully cooked and presented and served by friendly and efficient staff. The cream tea is the finest in Cornwall and having eaten plenty I consider myself a...connoisseur on the subject, Shelley the chef makes the most delicious scones I've ever tasted and my family completely concur. The cafe itself is lovely and clean, well worth a visit! 😍More

Stopped in for lunch today. Lovely homemade soup. My son loved his burger. Nice salad with a cheese and onion pasty. The food was good value compared to the pubs down the road. We might even return next year.

Sticky table was the first thing , orded a cream tea , great portion size , unfortunately it was covered in icing sugar so made everything sticky , knife napkin , all covered in it , lovely plump scones , jam has large chunks of...strawberries which is lovely till you try to spread, along with cream which was so thick and solid our scones just crumbled, very disappointed as I love cream teas , they did offer money back but I was happy to pay and just let them know the problem for future reference.More
