Family holiday in camelford and we wanted a really lovely cream tea experience, so I looked on here and was advised tube station so I took the kids up really excited. I liked the look of the place it was fun for the kids if...More

Food was really very good but there is a skate board ramp in the café and it was so noisy, you had to shout to be heard. Really cool, unusual place but be prepared for some serious noise.

I can't really comment much on the quality of the coffee or the staff. The overriding factor that defined our visit was that some genius has decided to put a skateboard ramp inside. Whilst this may seem trivial, picture someone banging a but of wood...More

Definitely not mainstream but for those who appreciate it, a welcome change. As one reviewer has already stated, it is more of a drop in centre than a cafe and was not particularly to our tastes. Having said that, we had a light lunch there...More

Amazing food, amazing staff. One of the best cafés I've visited in Cornwall (if not the best!). Lovely cafe inside, nice and quirky. Would recommend for anyone seeking lovely food and service with a great beach view.

It is nice space and view but who wants to listen to a skate board banging of the start and stop of the quarterpipe with your Americano. More of a drop in centre than a cafe but good for those who appreciate it.

We stumbled upon Tubestation when visiting Polzeath and I'm so happy we did. It had a lovely, welcoming and relaxed vibe - music, sofas, skateboarding ramp (yes, really!) - you can even bring your own food if you want, not that I would because their...More

From the outside the Tubestation looks an unassuming building but inside it is full of warmth, with a relaxing ambience and friendly staff/volunteers.This is run on a christian ethos without pushing it at you. You are free to bring your own food and drink in...More

I popped in with my sis-in-laws & mother-in-law on the last day of a week away & I wish I'd found the place sooner. My kids would love the indoor skate ramps & it had a fantastic atmosphere with great music, board games & comfy,...More

What do you think of when you think of a church? I can guarantee it isn't skateboards, surfing videos, cappuccinos and comfy sofas. It's unlikely to contain many people wearing rip curl and discussing the waves. Polzeath took a chance with this venture and it...More

Tubestation is a registered charity and community collaboration based in Polzeath which provides multiple and valuable services to the local community in and around Polzeath, right through the year. These include a multi-use community space with ethical cafe (reviewed here and elsewhere), art gallery, church, indoor skate ramp and many other activities. Tubestation's cafe (on which Trip Advisor reviews are based) creates simple and healthy well-sourced food and drink freshly made in an open kitchen; the purpose of which is to service and encourage an environment which brings all strands of community together (warning it can be noisy!) Uniquely the cafe welcomes people bringing their own food in, and supporting all the other businesses locally, and is often a place where people stop and stay for many hours. Tubestation is not for profit and puts everything it makes back into the community in some way, including 10% being donated as gifts to support good causes locally and globally.
