The Old School Rooms

The Edgemoor Hotel’s Famous Cream Tea

Come and join us for Afternoon Tea at The Edgemoor Hotel in our beautiful Old School Tea Rooms.

Our chef bakes homemade fruit and plain scones fresh every day, ensuring they are light, fluffy and delicious. We source the very best locally produced strawberry jam and clotted cream and don’t worry, we don’t hold back on the portion size. There’s nothing more frustrating than not having enough cream and jam to pile on your scone, so that’s why we give you unlimited supplies.

Our English Breakfast Tea is also from local supplier, Plymouth Tea. You can even have it with a cheeky glass of bubbly!

The Best Cream Tea on Dartmoor

We have been told countless times that we make the best Cream Tea on Dartmoor. This reputation is something we pride ourselves on.

The Edgemoor Cream Tea is a real showstopper and always gets a gasp when brought to the table. Served on a tall tower with vintage crockery and in quintessentially English fashion, covered with fresh, sweet strawberries.

You can enjoy your Cream Tea in our Old School Tea Rooms, once the Chemistry Labs in the old boy’s grammar school. Or, you can enjoy it outside in the sunshine in our beautiful landscaped grounds.

The real question is… jam or cream first? Join the debate on our Facebook page.
