Visiting Fowey today we were attracted by this very different and homely cafe for a light lunch. What a wonderful choice it turned out to be. I had an incredible 'Proper' Crab Sandwich on Granery and an 'oh so tasty' Salad on the side. Everything was quite obviously prepared by someone who cares about food. Their choice of teas is vast and I mean real loose tea with a flavour that we have all forgotten. The young ladies that looked after us were as friendly and helpful as they were pretty. Thank you for a lovely relaxing lunch in a very 'comfortable' establishment.

Thank Colin P

The scones were outstanding as was the cream and jam but make sure you are in the main part of the tea shop as we were in a side room squashed in a corner and we felt as if we were in a cupboard, didn't enjoy being in there .

Beautiful scones served with butter, cheese and chilli jam - divine. Very filling.
Service very good too - extra water with your pot of tea and willing to give you more to accommodate your tastes.
Really pleasant with a nice garden too.

What a find ! We loved it... warm delicious,cheesy scones topped with butter, cheese and a wonderful chilli jam. The fruit scones were equally good. The chocolate cake was bitter with a rich fudgey filling .... very yummy! The service was fabulous catering for the children’s requests. Would definitely return and recommend.

Loved this tea house in a house with history. Great fritatta on our last visit. Had wonderful crab when we were there previously. Loved the tea served in beautiful China cups. Nice friendly staff.
