JANUARY OPENING TIMES
To give ourselves and our hard working staff a break we will be closed for 3 weeks from Monday 10th January and re-opening on Saturday 29th January at 9am
We will also use the opportunity to carry out some maintenance and make the tea room bright and fresh for the new year.
We look forward to welcoming you all back soon
From everyone at the Twisted Currant
We now have outdoor seating in our new tea garden in the rear courtyard. It is a sun trap sheltered from the wind with artifical grass and lots of planters
REFURBISHED TEA ROOM
The Twisted Currant tea room has a brand new, fresh and vibrant look and we are also launching our new menu, full of delicious flavours and tempting dishes, still including our much loved homemade Cornish cream teas, cakes and treats!
The Twisted Currant is a traditional tea room in Porthleven, Cornwall, with a shabby chic feel (not a doily in sight), a bright fresh space and a cosy welcoming atmosphere. Our mission is to champion home made food. Susan produces her own cakes, pastries and bread on site, having honed her skills as a baker for over six years at Trevarno Gardens, near Helston.
Twisted Currant offers a varied menu with weekly specials, all freshly made using as much locally sourced Cornish as we can get our hands on. We specialise in the traditional cream tea with light fluffy scones, Roddas clotted cream and Boddingtons strawberry jam, all washed down with one of Tregothnan's declicious teas grown in Cornwall.
The tea room caters for a wide range of dietary requirements, so whether you're gluten free, dairy free, vegan, or simply looking after your waist line, there is always something delicious on the menu.
Cakes and Scones
All our cakes and scones are made on the premises by Susan who consitently produces light and fluffy cakes and scones. They are sweet, but not excessivly so, and full of flavour.
We also have the "The Chocolate Cream Tea" with chocolate chip scones, Cadburys chocloate spread and clotted cream, and a "Gentleman's Cream Tea" with cheese scones, Philadelphia cheese and red onion relish.
We have daily specials to suit the seasons. We are currently offering mouth watering winter comfort food such as beef stew and dumplings and sheperds pie. We always have tasty Vegan/Vegetarian options each day as well to suit all tastes and life styles.
We sell Tregothnan tea by the pot and take away loose leaf or tea bags. Tregothnan tea is the only tea grown in England and is a delicious and refreshing drink free of the bitter after taste of tanine so common in other teas. For a real treat try tregothnan tea with one of our cream teas.
We sell all our meals, cakes, cream teas and drinks as take aways.
Enjoy a cream tea sitting by the harbour, or on the beach, or take one of our cakes home to enjoy with a cup of tea later.
To help the environment by reducing waste, bring your own cup and we will take 25p off the price of a take away coffee or tea.
Sit and enjoy a coffee or tea whilst reading one of our free newspapers. Let the cares of the day wash away and relax in amialble surroundings reading your favourite newspaper.
We welcome parents with young babies and children. We have a baby changing mat, baby chairs and are breast feeding advocates.
We also have free colouring for children and dominoes, cards and noughts and crosses for the more adventurous.
We are one of the free refill stations for drinking water. Just pop in and ask for your water bottle to be refilled.
We welcome dogs and provide a water bowl. We usually have a dog biscuit treat for each dog.
