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 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.
We welcome dogs and provide a water bowl. We usually have a dog biscuit treat for each dog.
