  • This is an unexpected little gem of an area to wander around in the vicinity of the cathedral. Quaint old houses and winding streets.  more »
  • A quaint and quiet part of a busy city, a chance to visit the round tower and get close to the ship's coming in and out of the harbour. Stop off at the Still & West for a spot of lunch and a drink.  more »
  • both pubs sell outstanding food,the views from the still and west are marvelous ,parking is around the corner  more »

  • The tea room has the best cream tea I have tasted ever (I have tasted about 10 different tea room in Cornwall and London). The scone is so soft inside and crunchy outside. The cream has rose fragrance - I like it a lot. I recommend you try the cream tea here.
  • Tea was good! But the scones where tasteless and the cream was basically just foam... I didn't want to give this place a 1 star as it's kinda nice location and premises.
  • For a quick coffee or something more serious... Fantastic friendly welcome. Home cooked cakes are brilliant
  • Lovely lunch. Cake was amazing. Clean and welcoming. Maybe a little too white though inside.
  • Best breakfast I have ever had in a cafe
