The Edgcumbe tea-room on Cotehele Quay

Formerly a Victorian pub, the Edgcumbe is now an idyllic licensed tea-room overlooking the River Tamar. Settle in by the fire or book your party in the large Long Room upstairs. Open daily from 10am-4pm.

The Edgcumbe is open every day (except 25 and 26 December). Your dog is welcome too.

Fresh and seasonal

The Edgcumbe serves light lunches, cream teas, cake, beer and wine (lunch served 12noon-2.30pm). The menu changes depending on what's fresh and in season.

The winter menu includes a one pot served with chunky bread. One pot choices change every week and there are vegetable and coconut curry and tarka dal as options. You'll also find a broccoli and feta slice served warm, and warm mulled cider, warm mulled apple juice and mince pies with clotted cream.

You might also like a 'Shamrock stack' – a grilled cheese scone served with bacon, brie and tomato.

Cornish cream tea

Don't leave Cornwall without savouring a cream tea. Have yours jam first, the Cornish way or if you prefer the clotted cream first, that's okay by us.

The cream tea special now is a cranberry-orange scone served with passion fruit curd and clotted cream. The Edgcumbe also features a cheese tea and a selection of your favourite cakes that might include lemon drizzle, flapjacks and chocolate brownies. Ask your server about specials on the day you visit.

Dogs welcome

After a long walk in the fresh air with your four-legged friend, stop on the quay to take in the view of the river before heading to the Edgcumbe tea-room. Here there’s outdoor seating or you can retreat inside where your dog can have a kip under the table while you tuck into your well-deserved lunch or cream tea.

Hire the Long Room

Do you have a special birthday, anniversary or a business meeting coming up? The Long Room upstairs is available for private hire.
