We really enjoyed the cream tea sitting outside and listening to a lady singing opera. The staff were a particular highlight, all delightfully friendly and helpful.

Popped in for breakfast before walking the coast path to Zennor. Super speedy service with a smile. Scrambled eggs on toast cooked to perfection, great coffee and cute tea cosies! Definitely will return for lunch and they are open in the evening too!

Really lovely and friendly staff. No problems providing a jug of hot water to heat up my baby's bottle. Cornish cream tea was delicious. Would recommend.

Yes there is parking about 5 mins away behind the Sloop Inn, if that's full try the Island car park which is about 10 mins away, take plenty of change with you for parking.

The Searoom is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All our cakes, scones and tarts are made by hand in our kitchen and we use only the best local meat, fish and vegetables in our restaurant. Almost everything on the menu is also available gluten free. We have the most amazing Harbour view!
