The Miller's Wife's Tea Room

We will be serving customers outdoors in our undercover area, which seats 30+ socially distanced. The tea garden will also be open in fine weather. The tea room building will be closed.

Booking advised in peak times.  We take reservations on the day from 9am. Please call the mill on 01271 863185, or call or text Kathy on 07554 310176 to make your booking.

As always, please see our full opening times for more information.

Four times winner of Devon Life's Best Tearoom award, our tearoom is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional Devonshire cream tea.

All items in our tearoom are baked by the miller's wife on the premises. The selection changes each day, but features predominantly a tempting selection of mill-made cakes, many of which are baked with stoneground flour from our water mill.

We have room for 30+ in our outside under cover seating area and an additional 38 covers in our teagarden.  There's space for children to play and take part in our games and challenges, giving you time to sit back and enjoy your cream tea.  Access to the mill building is free. Please accompany children at all times. Dogs are not allowed in the mill itself.

Cream Tea

"Best cream tea in Devon!"

We have a range of cream teas available; as well as fruit or plain scones, we also offer Devonshire splits for a truly traditional cream tea experience.

If you'd like something a bit different, try our thunder and lightning (scones with clotted cream and golden syrup) or our savoury cream tea (cheese scones served with cream cheese and our prize-winning caramelised onion marmalade)!


Our selection of cakes changes daily. Follow us on Facebook for the day's treats!

Here are some of our favourites... (Click for a bigger picture)


If you're joining us for lunch, we offer a selection of homemade sandwiches and savoury cream teas.  

Afternoon Tea

If you're planning something special, an afternoon tea at Hele Corn Mill & Tea Room is the perfect treat.

From afternoon tea for two, to high tea for a group, or scones and sandwiches for your party, we've got something for all occasions.

Where time allows, we can bake gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan scones : PLEASE PRE-ORDER by 11am on the day.

If you have a special dietary requirement, please contact us at least 24 hours in advance and the miller's wife will bake something for your visit!
