We are fairly local and pop in when we are in Corfe. Always pleasant staff, lovely and cosy atmosphere any time of the year. We only had a small cream tea but the fruit scones which are not my preference (plain were sold out) were sooooo scrummy! The staff (a lovely Scottish lady and young lady) were really welcoming and... More

Delightful National Trust tea room that specialises in cream tea. An Open fire crackling away with welcoming staff serving fabulous cream teas and cakes. Prompt table service after selecting a table and ordering from the counter. Particularly like the cream tea of the month idea. I may have to make a monthly trip here now!

We stopped for a quick afternoon Tea and ended up tempted by the lovely cakes and scones on offer. The service is great and the log fire was an added bonus. What a lovely place to spend a bit of time relaxing over Tea and Cake. Oh and I would recommend the coffee and walnut cake it was superb.

We called in here on the way to Swanage. Really welcoming and whilst menu wast hugely comprehensive the food was well presented, great quality and reasonably priced. Would certainly visit again.

This tearoom is one of the best national trust facilities we have visited. The garden alone is worth the visit as it has a stunning view of Corfe Castle. With excellent baking, proper china for the tea and a clean, relaxed interior it cannot be faulted. Attentive service and pleasant staff make this an essential pitstop after visiting the castle.

Lovely tearooms in heart of the village at the bottom of the hill leading to Corfe Castle. You can take a well behaved dog inside if required Cakes are homemade and scrummy!!

An interesting selection of scones with lashings of cream and jam. Warm and cosy and just the place after a blustery walk around Corfe Castle.

We have been going to this cafe for many years but the last two visits have not been so good. Both times we were served at the till by a very abrupt and rude manager. Back in November when the tearoom was very quiet and they were not busy he refused to wait at the table and insisted my elderly... More

Great selection of cakes, including gluten and dairy free. There's also a few sandwich options. Helpful and friendly staff. Before Easter they close at 4pm though, so you can't really go after visiting the castle.

Thank danio
