First of all, lovely jam!! It is expensive though, £7odd for a jar of honey... we were hoping with it saying Jam Factory that there'd be something to see, I.e. Jam being made. Unfortunately not so it's not the morning out you'd hope. The gentleman in the shop was lovely!! We have been before where we experienced the older lady... More

The cream tea (or in my case coffee) came with a mug of instant coffee (for £5.50). My son's Vimto was a class of cordial (£1.80). Overpriced!

Whilst exploring Anglesey we passed several signs for The Jam Factory so decided to pop in for a nice cream tea. After what seemed like absolute ages down narrow tracks we arrived only to find that they were not open on a Sunday. Would perhaps have been a good idea to add to the signs as Anglesey is a tourist... More

So many odd negative reviews. We went because I wanted some nice jam. We were sold some very nice jam by the friendly owner....errm job done. There was no sign 'Cheap jam this way' What did people expect? Some sport of jam clearance warehouse? If you want high product standards be prepared to pay!

We were tempted to visit by the sign advertising a jam factory (despite it having being closed to the public for some time !) and the availability of cream teas. On arrival the display of metal motoring signs was impressive as was the array of jjams,-preserves ,pickles etc in the shop - but these products were expensive (£4.50 for a... More

£11.00 for pot of tea for two people plus one slice each of Bara Brith (Welsh tea /fruit loaf ) each with scraping of butter.= a complete RIP-OFF ! When we queried the price we were told that what we had ordered was classed as a"Cream Tea "& the cost was £5.50 per person. My understanding of such is that... More

Overpriced food in an uncomfortable setting. Drove for miles off the beaten track to arrive. Once we got there we were a captive audience. What a rip off. This is not a proper cafe. It does not do proper food. They advertise cream teas but there was no mention of a proper cream tea on the menu. Baguettes at 6.75... More

£6.50 for a ham sandwich with a little bit of lettuce, a slice of cucumber and two grapes.. Even in london we get more for that. We had two sandwiches (one ham, one cheese) which as per the above were a joke for 6.50 each. We received a very small portion of chutney to share and two tea however im... More

After having had a wonderful walk around Cemlyn we visited The Jam Factory for afternoon tea. There was 3 of us and we ordered cake and scones, one ordinary tea and 2 Earl Grey plus one glass of tap water. Firstly we were informed there was a charge of 50p for the water which we found amazing but accepted it.... More
