The best places for a Cornish cream tea

Simon L 29 June 2018

A visit to Cornwall wouldn’t be complete without indulging in a delicious cream tea, traditionally a pot or cup of tea, with homemade scones, clotted cream and jam. It's a staple of the Cornish diet, and a holiday to the region isn't complete without trying the sweet treat!

That's why we’ve picked some of the best places to enjoy this Cornish delight on your visit to the region - and don’t forget, it’s jam first!

Dolly’s Tea Room and Wine Bar

Location: Falmouth, West Cornwall

This charming tea room is set in a beautiful Georgian room in the centre of Falmouth. By day you can enjoy a scrumptious selection of homemade cakes, cream teas and exotic brews. In the evening this lovely tea room transforms into a candlelit bar serving tapas and wine and there is the delightful sound of the piano playing vintage tunes.
