  • A little bit of history with some nice views out over the sea. Very popular with tourists and make a great cup of coffee. Also had a good range of food. If visiting for lunch make sure to book.  more »
  • An ideal location to look down at the water....the waffles were lovely......large in size......need to share. Lovely staff and really on to the Covid requirements  more »

  • Lovely spot and gorgeous views but think twice before entering the gift shop. The old lady in here is past her time in customer service. What a sad ending to a beautiful day when being yelled at for "shopping" ...
  • Gorgeous, but if you think you are getting a original clotted cream tea as advertised... Think again, squirty cream from a can is NOT cornish or Devon clotted cream, did try to tell the staff but just looked like I was speaking another language... Shame
