Visited for lunch whilst on a family holiday locally. Lovely home made soup, cheese scones and pasties in a truly unique and delightful setting. We will be back.

On a sunny but windy morning we had walked the coast path up hill and down dale and were ready for a break. The Rectory Tea Rooms were packed at 1.30 but we quickly found a table outside . The staff, who seemed to be rushed off their feet, were very helpful and warned us that there might be a... More

We walked for 4 hours from where we were staying along the coast and our treat at the end was a lovely cider and cake ! Pretty tearoom inside and out with friendly staff! Definitely worth the visit and a great treat after such a long walk! The cakes were good and from what I saw from other customers the... More

The cream teas are very good with nice scones and real cream and jam, but it is rather expensive for meals, but then many places are the same these days and parking is free

After a gruelling but amazing section of the coast path, a late lunch at the very traditional Rectory Farm tearooms was very welcome. Lovely food, lovely setting, staff could not have been nicer. Highly recommend it.

We first visited here two years ago, when our family treated us to the amazing afternoon tea for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was the best we had ever had (and that includes some quite famous 5* London hotels), and we vowed that we would definitely return one day. If you are thinking of having the same, make sure you...

We were delighted to see this little tea room at the start of our walk and couldn't wait to go in (once we'd earned some calories in our coastal walk!) We sat outside and we're served promptly. It was a very tough choice as everything looked so good but we settled on a Brie/bacon/chilli jam sandwich for me and a... More

WHEN we walked into these tea rooms just a few yards from Morwenstow Church we quite simply found one of the best cream teas we have ever had. The surroundings alone would be worth anyone`s time to visit because the old building dates back to the 13th Century. But we`d come for a cream tea and so made our way... More

My husband & I had lunch here following a circular walk with the dogs in the gorgeous surrounding area. An unusually warm day we sat in the garden but we're welcomed in the tea room as they were not too busy. I ordered a West Country cheddar ploughmans which came beautifully presented with green bean chutney- so delicious I asked... More
