An unplanned visit, to shelter from heavy rain. What a nice place! I had a big pot of tea (from a choice of 15+ leaf teas), sandwich with a nice garnish (salad, coleslaw and crisps) and a hot rhubarb crumble. £11. Very nice indeed.

I had a gluten free cream tea in the Georgian tearooms last Saturday & it was the best scone I have ever had. They also had a list of jams to choose from, I had rhubarb & it was delicious.

Charming service. Lovely tea. Just perfect. Shows others how it should be done. We arrived just before closing but they accommodated us with a smile, more than can be said for a more famous establishment in Lyme.Regis the week before.

This is an excellent place to eat, if you like good home cooked food. All the food is superb, what ever you order, cooked lunch, cream tea or coffee and cake. However we find the wonderful array of freshly made desserts irresistible and delicious. Portions are large, and price's are very reasonable.

The food is all home cooked and it is absolutely delicious. Although I warn you portion sizes are large so make sure you are hungry!

Going into the Georgian tea room is a bit like stepping back in time. It may appear quite old fashioned, but the quality of the food is outstanding. I would travel far to eat Mrs Knee's cream teas. Her scones are the best I have ever had, and I have tried many. They are served with the best local clotted... More

My Mum and I were visiting the area and chanced upon the Georgian Tea Rooms in Topsham; and lucky that we did! The menu for afternoon tea was extensive with an almost mind-boggling choice of teas, cakes and jam varieties to go with the amazing homemade scones. I ordered the Traditional English Tea which came on a tiered cake stand... More

Only discovered the Georgian Tea Room today - lovely old building set back from the High Street, like stepping back in time, only a couple of tables free, embroidered tableclothes, lots of knick knacks around the room, mainly novelty teapots. Crowded with a good cross section of people mainly enjoying cream teas - the scones are huge! My companion is... More

Visited the tea shop on the recommendation of a relative who lives on Exmouth. Well we weren't disappointed. We ordered the full cream tea and sat ourselves in the lovely walled garden. Out came the most amazing cream tea with freshly baked (still warm) scones, fresh clotted cream and the choice of about 10 different jams. We left very satisfied.... More
