Service was quick and friendly. Coffee was good and the cake was excellent. Not far from the castle and in the centre of the village. Chosen as good outside seating

The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, they really added to the occasion. Sandwiches and scones were delicious and plentiful. Plus they can actually make a decent cuppa!

We arrived in Corfe Castle on a very wet and cold afternoon but finding the Model Village tea shop made our day! The cream tea was fantastic - lashings of clotted cream, huge scones and run but a wonderfully friendly staff. We'll be back!

Visited this cafe due to the reviews on TA and were not disappointed. Pleased to see they were able to serve a decaf skinny latte which is always a bonus and had some gluten free cakes. The cafe decor is fairly plain inside but clean...More

Stopped of here at The Courtyard Café for a little Cream tea however, little is not the word I would use, the scones where huge, and there was loads and loads of jam and clotted cream for your money. Very friendly and helpful waiter service...More

What a lovely little find! 4 of us visited this cafe for an English cream tea! The scones are lovely and fresh and has been cooked that morning! We had plenty of jam and proper cream! Definitely worth a visit for a bite to eat!

Called for afternoon tea and cake at this cafe which is self service. A good array of cakes available but make sure you are hungry...they still give you a big slice. Recommended and will be returning.

It's good, but it's no Minimundus. Good fun for the kids, not the longest day out but you can feel like a giant for the day!

As you will gather, we went here on my birthday.. We got to the model village and decided we wanted a snack before we explored. The tea room was busy, but there was 1 table just vacated when we arrived. The gentleman behind the counter...More

Hi, I think the quickest thing would be to write it again on the Castle Inn's page, if you have time? It would be good for them. Sorry it has taken me this long to bring it up. Regards Emily
