Always pop in for a Steak and Stilton pasty and ice cream on our arrival in Croyde. It's a must and now a tradition after 9 years ! A wide choice of ice creams and pasty galore. Only small so always busy. The children's cone at 1,75 is big enough for an adult.. You must have the clotted cream for... More

We visited this shop because of the good review and rating on trip advisor. However we are REALLY disappointed by the cream tea. They are like the scones you get from supermarket if not worse. Also they don't do any table services at the moment, everything got put into a take-away box. Not a nice experience..

We ordered a take away cream tea for 2 (we had two under 5s with us) and took it back to our holiday home. It was delicious. The scones were gorgeous and warm still and a whole tub of clotted cream (we are cream tea pigs).

While we were staying down at Croyde last week we bought a few pasties from this shop. They were very tasty, the only little problem was that they were a bit overpriced in my opinion. Staff were great too.
