Very friendly people and a lovely set up. They’ve got Covid - compliant sheds and cabins. Also sells pot plants!

The three of us plus our dog stopped here for lunch after a walk in Horner Woods. Nicely located next to the NT Car Park (although beware - £5 to park and they only take coins). We had sandwich, pananini, latte, cake and two cream...teas. £27 seemed reasonable. Lots of outdoor seating which is perfect in these current COVID times. A reasonable amounr of seating under cover as well. The scones/cream tea should get a special mention. Two very large scones, lovely jam and proper clotted cream. The fruit scone is one of the best I've had. Well worth a visit before or after your walk. Dogs are very welcome with plenty of water bowls in the tea garden.More

Called in for something to eat and drink before a walk in Horner Woods. Sampled the scones and sandwiches plus drinks sitting in their gardens. Fully Covid compliant. £12.50 all up. Good value. Would recommend.

We were driving back to Woolacombe from a days walking on Exmoor. We came across this charming little tea room & thought we’d stop off for a traditional Devonshire cream tea. There is a reasonable sized garden & the weather was warm enough to sit...outside. We ordered 2 cream teas. When they arrived, we were amazed - 2 large scones, pots of clotted cream & jam & nice big pot of tea. At £5.95, this was very reasonable & easily one of the best cream teas we’ve had. The setting is tranquil in Horner village, & this place is definitely a hidden gem.More

During a recent visit to Somerset we were struggling to find a quintessential cream tea then happened upon this tea garden where we realised we had been before whilst at the campsite a few years ago. The cream tea was perfect with warmed, large scones...times two and individual pots of cream and jam. We tried the whortleberry jam for a supplement, which was delicious and worth every penny. Extra hot water was supplied for the teapot. Excellent value.More

Visited here a couple of times while staying just along the road at the camp site. I had the tuna melt panini both times as it was delicious. My family had a variety of other lunches and all was fantastic. Good friendly service.

This place really is just perfect. Situated right next to my favourite bit of woodland. I only ever eat cream teas here... You need the energy for walking, right? They are spot on though and the tea room is in the most perfect, tranquil setting...you will find.More

Loved it here! Enjoyed a delicious jacket potato and a cheeky Cream Tea and both were absolutely DELICIOUS!! Will definitely come again when we are next in the area.

We have been visiting the tea gardens for many years and I must say the scones and panini are delicious. But this year we were all disappointed with the cream and jam with the scones. Each person got a small amount of each, there is...a sign stating that if you require more please ask. I did and was told to order at the counter where we were charged an extra pound for each extra pot. A bit stingy I thought when we had pain almost £6 for the cream tea. ☹️More

A lovely quaint and pretty tea garden. We visited on a rainy day and there were tables undercover. Food was great, we had a cream tea and a sandwich and it was lovely.
