The Old Mill Tea Room
The Old Mill Tea Room is a family run business located at 23 Brunswick Place, Dawlish, EX7 9PD. A wide variety of teas, freshly ground coffees are served, together with light lunches, home made cakes and scones. The tea room is within the unique setting of an old mill building dating back to 1717, which used to be a flour mill but where the huge waterwheel outside, still turns daily.
The Old Mill is of much historical interest. Nearly all of the internal machinery and mill stones are still in place which are viewable from the Tea Room itself. Many people come to enjoy a cream tea or light lunch and soak up the unique atmosphere either sitting outside by the wheel or inside where you can view the internal mill workings.
