SCONES
We may have been unlucky, but the scones here were not at their best having come not fresh from an oven, but out of a large plastic box under the counter. However, we did have a choice of plain or fruit and they were quite large.

CREAM
A small, but sufficient ramekin of clotted cream.

JAM
A small, but sufficient ramekin of Strawberry jam. As we were in Devon, we felt obliged to adopt the Jam on Top technique – obviously.

TEA
A choice of teas, but sadly neither Earl Grey nor Lapsang Souchong – see picture.

AMBIENCE & SERVICE
To be fair, it was late in the day (4:40pm) and they were clearing up ready to close at 5pm, so the experience wasn’t the best. In our experience, NT property cafés are only likely to score up to 7 or 8 on account of the canteen-style, self service approach, but sadly today’s visit didn’t reach these heights.

Score 5/10
