  • Popped in for a cream tea with the family and had probably the best cream tea we've had in the area, also the cheapest by a mile too. The general menu looked very good too, particularly if you're a ve...  more »

  • Worth the visit if you are interested in bees. Don't expect a modern holiday destination but do expect very knowledgeable owners who will happily chat and answer questions. The exhibit has a very 1990's secondary school vibe and looks a little tired but for £2.50 it's an enjoyable way to spend an hour.
  • Loved the little cafe upstairs. What a beautiful find. Xxx
  • Eclectic combination of an old fashion honey and bee gift shop, a vegan organic cafe upstairs and a room full of bee artefacts under the label of a bee exhibition. The building as you drive into the car park round the back, desperately needs a new lick of paint. The cafe, you can see tries so hard and the food we had was delicious. But be prepared everything is vegan and not to everyone's taste. The gift shop is filled to the brim of anything and everything to do with bees or honey. There's even a couple of rooms round the side devoted to supplies for a bee keeper. As for the bee exhibition, OK its not much for the entrance fee but I can see some people will be disappointed with it. If you have children and they are happy for you to explain everything to them, it is fine. If they need constant stimuli, it is not the place to take them. Once you go pass the four working bee hives, young kids will be bored.
  • Luckily we were not charge entry as there were only a few wasps to see No honey seen in production Think this is a mid summer activity Even the tea room was closed on 29th oct.
  • Friendly people up stairs in the café and I can honestly say after eating loads of pasty,s over many many years the two pasty,s I brought at the café where the best pastys I have ever eaten well done and my wife and I will never come to Cornwall again without popping in and buying some of your pasty,s Vic & daisy Lloyd .
