We have been trading as a family in Paulines Creamery for over 30 years.
We sell a whole range of yummy food, ranging from a vast array of cakes, gateaux and Cornish cream teas – all produced on the premises – to pasties, sandwiches and baguettes, as well as a number of light lunches available in our tearoom.
We are a small family business which trades over two floors of a centrally located building in the the pedestrian area of Newquay.
The ground floor contains a take-away which sells all of our products, available to take home or to the beach.
Our first floor holds our tea room and the bakery which is the epicentre of production. You’ll find our bakers here hard at work producing delicious goods for our customers to enjoy.
The smells from the bakery drift temptingly through the building and into our tearoom.
The tearoom can seat around 58 people with a layout of both booth seating and tables and chairs in cosy corners.
The Paull family bought this business in 1984 from a lady called Pauline.
Having spent all their savings on the purchase and with a young family to maintain they couldn’t afford to change the frontage or the business name immediately and so decided to run it in their first year of trading under Pauline’s name.
After a summer of trading they realised they had bought a business with 13 yrs of good will created by Pauline herself and that many of their customers in that first year had come back from having previously had good experiences there.
So with this in mind and also with a surname of ‘Paull’ they decide that it wasn’t such a bad idea to continue trading as Paulines.
Originally trading on Fore Street the opportunity arose to move to Bank Street and being a more central location the Paull’s moved Paulines to its current location.
Royal Visit – 1916 Prince of Wales & Duke of York
Travelling down Fore Street in Newquay on their way to the Old Oak Tearoom owned by Mr Jasper which is now Paulines Tearoom in Newquay for a Cornish Cream Tea.
It was well documented that the Royal family especially the two princes loved to visit Cornwall and Newquay often staying at the iconic Headland Hotel overlooking Fistral Beach.
Mr Jasper then took it upon himself to change all his packaging after their visit to proclaim that his business was “Patronized by Royalty” although this was not confirmed through Royal appointment.
