The tea rooms are located within a pretty Grade 11 listed Manor House which is said to be one of the oldest buildings in St Ives. The interior is heavily beamed, very quaint and decorated in delightful “Cath Kidston” style.
In good weather guests like to sit outside on the lovely river terrace and enjoy the river and the old bridge and relax by watching the ducks and swans swim by and enjoy the river boats.
All food is freshly made to order using locally sourced products where possible.
