Reviewers name the Isle of Wight's best cream tea

Most tourists heading out on their Isle of Wight holidays will be keen to find a cafe in which to have a rest and sample a cream tea.

Now they have been pointed by a pair of respected reviewers to what they say is the best cream tea on the island.

According to Matt and Cat of the Isle of Wight Eating out Guide, the Roundhouse Tea Rooms in Newport is set in a "pretty cottage garden" and is well worth a visit.

"The Roundhouse Tea Rooms is an oft-overlooked gem: generous rations, truly excellent cake, wonderful ambience and traditionally personal service make this a clear favourite," the couple concluded of their trip to the venue.

Matt and Cat had particular praise for the scones themselves, labelling them "fantastically fluffy and moist".

The Guardian has previously singled out an Isle of Wight venue for its cream teas, but it chose Warren Farm rather than the Roundhouse Tea Rooms.
