Even the locals couldn't give me a definitive answer to the question – what goes on the scone first on a cream tea - jam and then clotted cream or vice versa? So I experimented myself and really couldn't tell the difference either way. As I had half a scone and some jam and cream left I tried jam, cream... More

We stopped by at the end of our walk to Morgan porth, it has lovely gardens and a pretty seating area inside with grape vines hanging right above your head! A well looked after caffe and a lovely family.

We stopped in for a late lunch and cream tea. Wow! What a find! Lovely family run tea rooms. Our daughter was pleased to make friends with the owners family. Lunches were delicious and the cream tea was the best we've had in years. We'll be back on our next visit to Cornwall. Highly recommended!

Brilliant find in a quiet little village near Newquay. Great food and the best scones and tea we have ever tried, very friendly staff too. The seating area is beautiful with grapevines above you. Make sure to visit this place if you can!

We love this tea room and are so pleased the new owners are keeping up the great food and service the scones are amazing as are the sandwiches and ploughman, served with the homemade chutney. Lovely gardens to sit in and relax. We will certainly keep visiting every time we visit the area.

We stumbled upon the St Mawgan tea rooms by chance, we were out for the and and looked for somewhere to grab lunch. The interior has delightful grape vines growing throughout and the gardens were immensely relaxing. The scones were delicious, my Cappuccino actually had a coffee flavor unlike most cafes where it tastes of warm milk. This is by... More

We literally stumbled upon this little gem by accident, touring the villages and coastline north of Newquay. Set in a very picturesque village, and sitting behind the general store/post office, the tea room is a conservatory with grape vines, overlooking the deceptively laid out garden. We tried the Cornish cream tea, with home-made strawberry jam and lashings of local clotted... More

If you're flying out of Newquay airport head here for a decent snack before your flight. We had a lovely cream tea but saw people eating sandwiches which also looked lovely if you wanted something larger. Tea was spot on to and served with extra water. Would have liked to have tried the grapes hanging from the roof!!
