Excellent service, we enjoyed a lovely lunch and a cream tea later in the week. They were very accommodating with all the children.

We visited as a family for lunch - we were greeted on arrival, quickly pointed in the direction of a table and provided with a high chair. Our sandwiches were lovely, and the cakes we followed them with delicious. There was a lovely open fire in the room we ate in, and service was friendly.

I love visiting the Corn Dolly, when all my friends reunite from the four corners of the world we always return and always without fail get a cheese tea, the corn dolly tea, cheese sandwiches and egg sandwiches and a selection of cakes! Cheese and the bread is always fresh and yummy! Sandwiches packed with filling, cheese tea is huge... More

The carrot cake was the best l have tasted for a long time. They have a great range of home made cakes all of which are well made and taste Wow! May be not super fast waiters but who cares when the cake is this good.

Went here for lunch this week with my daughter and although we have been before it is always the same. The food is lovely and no complaints there whatsoever, but they never seem to have enough staff for the amount of customers waiting to be served. Our server was a very nice lady but it just all took too long.... More

Great service, a really good choice of food with generous portions. Very popular so not always easy to walk in and get a seat so be prepared to queue for a table, but we'll worth the wait! Also does a lovely Devon cream tea and bottomless coffees.

I love this Café! The coffee is very good, the sandwiches and cake are excellent. Service can be a bit slow, and I had to go and find someone to get condiments, but the quality of food is superb. We had an hour so were pushed for time, which made quick service more important, but if you want a leisurely... More

Having lived in the area for 30+ years I had never been to the Corn Dolly. I was pleasantly surprised to discover they serve soya milk with the hot drinks, its on the board, you dont have to enquire, such a treat! It was also very nice normal soya milk, not over sweetened. The coffee was very nice, my friend... More

Family run and so welcoming. All the food is home-cooked with cakes to die for. Well worth a visit, and an excellent detour from the A361 when travelling.
