This wonderful tea rooms was very quaint it has beautiful surroundings and a lovely log fire. The cream tea we had was unbelievable. The menu for lunch was very different and all homemade food.

After a very long walk to Hawkers Hut, we were in desperate need of food, drink and a sit down and we found it here. A quaint room with jovial, friendly staff. We had the most delicious sandwiches, though were disappointed to be told the roast dinner was only available if pre booked.

We were in the area looking at the church and were delighted to find the tea rooms. What an aladdins cave inside, my sister in law and I spent ages looking at everything. We were made very welcome and enjoyed coffee and cake. An absolute gem. We were advised to wander along the coastal path to visit the smallest NT... More

Had a beautiful afternoon tea at the Rectory Rooms. Scones with cream and jam absolutely delicious. And a great pot of tea. The Tea Rooms steeped in history and tastefully decorated. Well worth a visit! Staff very friendly. Thank you. We enjoyed our visit. Definitely will recommend friends to visit.

We came across this gem whilst having a mooch round on a day where we didn't want to travel far from where we were staying on holiday in Bude. We hadn't read any reviews about this place on TripAdvisor, so went in with an open mind! How glad we did! What a wonderful "home from home" place. We were the... More

The Rectory Tea Rooms never disappoints. Gorgeous cakes and cream teas, a lovely garden, interesting rooms inside. I now see they do lunches too - I look forward to sampling those too.

I have visited here many times and taken various friends and family. Everybody loves it. Beautiful old furniture and china makes for an atmospheric place to lunch. Clean, scrumptious food, gifts for sale and great walking nearby. Just the place to eat when you have walked up an appetite with a coastal walk or a visit to nearby Hawker's Hut.... More

We have been to The Rectory Tea Rooms for lunch, tea and morning coffee. Each time the welcome, service, food and drinks were excellent. It is a great location for walking and to be able to look forward to refreshments here is a real bonus. Prices are reasonable, really good value.
