We’ve been here twice in the last week & haven’t been disappointed. My son & husband had the same things on both visits because they enjoyed them so much - omelette & cheese & pickle baguette. The granary bread sandwiches were delicious- salmon & cream cheese & egg mayonnaise were both sampled! The homemade strawberry sponge cake was lush. Service is quick & friendly. Deffo worth a visit....or two!

We love this tea room, best in Ilfracombe.

We’ve been coming here for years and still the best food and drinks in the area.

Keep up the fab work Andy and Jennie xx

We had a fab lunch here - we sat outside for our main (delicious crab salad and toasted sandwiches), but when we got cold we were able to move inside with no problems. What impressed me most was how easy it was for me to have a gluten free meal - I was also able to have a gluten free cream tea which is a treat! The scones for the normal cream tea were huge and homemade which was pretty special, and service was really friendly. Much more than we expected from a rainy lunchtime!

We visited as part of our family holiday after struggling to find somewhere that could seat a family of six without a ridiculous wait. The service was fantastic and we were immediately made to feel at ease. We sat outside in the garden and our children were fascinated by the very tame sparrows that came to visit us. The owner went out of his way to make sure all our needs were met including our very fussy son! I had the fresh crab sandwich, which was very delicious followed by a very generous portion of bread pudding and clotted cream (possibly the best I’ve tasted)!
Fantastic place for families - highly recommend x
