Our Periwinkle Tea Room is famous for its Somerset cream teas, all served with Tiptree jams and local clotted cream. We also serve a delicious range of cake, home made on the premises, including Victoria sandwich, coffee and walnut cake, chocolate cake, brownies and fruit cake. Our light lunches, again freshly made, include toasted sandwiches, soups and our savoury cream tea.

All our teas come from a local supplier just two miles away.

Our pretty tea garden has spectacular views across to Dunkery and we welcome dogs.

  1. Hello, perhaps one day, I will be able to visit Selworthy and the neighboring towns and villiges, but for this time, I have only one item that reminds me of Selworthy, on a daily basis. This “one thing”, is a cup, with a charming picture of a thatched roof house, surrounded by trees and flowers. There is no makers name on the bottom of the cup, only the words Selworthy -made in England…..over the years I have attempted to locate other bits of this tea ware, to no avail….today it occurred to me that perhaps you gift shop, may sell modern ware, in the same Selworthy pattern. The one cup that I still have , I would guess by its shape may have been made in the 1920’s or ’30’s, certainly after 1900……..Please let me know if you have any, of what was never a whole set when It was given to mej, that I might purchase a few pieces. Thank you in advance for looking into this……..Nancy E. Dyment-Travers, 167 West Water Street, Rockland, Massachusetts 02370

    • One of our lovely Facebook followers found this for you: “Hi, Nancy from MAssachusetts. The pattern you are looking for is Royal Winton Selworthy, from 1935. If you Google search “Royal Winton Selworthy pattern” you’ll find several companies that still sell pieces online. Good luck.

    • Hi Nancy!
      Unfortunately, the Selworthy tea room and shop don’t sell this tableware. However, a kind Exmoor4all follower on Facebook sent us this message: “The pattern you are looking for is Royal Winton Selworthy, from 1935. If you Google search “Royal Winton Selworthy pattern” you’ll find several companies that still sell pieces online. Good luck.”
      Please let us know how you got on.
      Are you looking for any other Selworthy products? The shop does have lovely photographs by Rosie Schneider, and the Exmoor Producers Association also has some product.
      As I said – please keep in touch and let us know!
      Best wishes
