Visited with my wife, son & his fiancé for Cornish Tea last week. Lovely surroundings, and a really nice place. Tea was excellent, as were the scones, jam and cream. We all thoroughly enjoyed the visit !!

We stopped off here for afternoon tea whilst in Truro. Really lovely scones and tea. Quaint tea room with friendly, attentive service. Definitely worth stopping off here.

I am not aware of their rules on pets, but remember there are three flights of stairs with many antique and antiquarian items on the landings. Hope this helps.
