I shouldn’t be writing this review as I like to get a table but there are not a lot to go round at this little Sidmouth gem. However the food is so good that I have to rate it as maybe the best dining in...More

Small quirky café playing fairly unobtrusive jazz music. All of the meals/cakes/scones are made by the owner/chef. Not an extensive menu but nevertheless interesting and all the better for that. Check out the specials board. Quite possibly the finest food in Sidmouth.

This was our umpteenth visit to Seeley's over the last few years since Richard took over. His scones are gorgeous but the piece de resistance is his Tart au Tatin where his fruit is 'rested' in Brandy during the preparation!! Absolute heaven!

Myself and my Mum visited Selley's midweek at around noon, we sat outside in the small courtyard at a two seater table. After waiting a while we asked what the procedure was to order- we got a menu and a waitress came over soon after....More

Visited this tea room multiple times whilst in the area as the food is great and the authentic cream teas were out of this world, scones baked on site. Limited indoor seating but a large proportion of courtyard is covered.

In the craziness of the Red Arrows visit, we found this oasis of calm. Lovely courtyard to sit and enjoy some peace away from the mayhem. Not a huge menu but I have no problem with that if it means things are done well. And...More
