Great selection of cakes - have made it a 'must' stop whenever I am near the Square. Beautiful views of the Castle. A slice of Dorset Cake goes down a treat with a cup of tea.

Cream teas, scones, flapjacks, shortbread: everything a tea-room should be, with outside seating that lets you keep an eye on family and friends scaling the castle hill. Highly recommended for those who have limited mobility but want the vicarious Corfe experience.

We visited Corfe castle and then welcomed a cream tea. The place was friendly, you order and pay and then it is brought out to you. We had a cream tea which was fresh. We had a lovely view while enjoying the scone. Dog friendly.

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
