Lovely home soup for lunch before canal trip, great outside seating if it dry, but plenty of room inside too. . good cross section of food from small to larger bites or just a quick cuppa or cool drink

Stopped off here after a lovely walk along the canal. Had a aromatic garden burger with salad and it was huge and very enjoyable, friendly staff and glorious settings. Nice and relaxing after a long walk.

Best high tea in Devon, we came here after our wedding for high teas and couldn't have been more impressed. Very generous portions all prepared freshly. Best scones we've had for a long time. Lovely friendly atmosphere. We will be back!!

We stopped here with our two children on our way back to the midlands. It’s a pretty tearoom, I am gluten-free and I was told most things could be prepared for me which is great. It’s a bit small inside which was tricky with two...More

Stopped off in Tiverton on way to Cornwall. Beautiful walk along the canal, and then back to the tea rooms. Beautiful setting, excellent service, and very good value for money. Was able to sit outside, but plenty of options under cover as well. Can well...More
