Good old fashioned value for money

Had lunch here today for the first time in ages and had forgotten just how good it is. The food is always excellent, whatever you order.

Visited Topsham specifically for cream tea and it was amazing. The scones, clotted cream and jam were just divine. Tea was also great, and the cups it came in were adorable. Really great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Whenever we visit the area we always make a point of visiting the Georgian Tea Room for a cream tea. Whilst it is not the fanciest or most scenic tea room, in our opinion it offers the best cream tea in the respect of taste, quality and value. There is a good selection of home made jams to chose from.... More

We decided to stop here for lunch after reading that they recently won an award for the best cream tea in Britain - we had perfectly nice sandwiches, quiche and cream tea served in the garden but certainly nothing to write home about - waitress wasn't particularly friendly - plastic garden furniture not very pleasant to eat off - if...

One of the best cream teas I've had. The scones are massive (you can definitely split a full cream tea between two) and you get a good portion of jam and clotted cream. The staff are friendly and they frequently sell courgettes for 25p! Nice garden area in the summer too.

Called in for a cream tea when visiting Topsham on a fine sunny day, so sat outside in the pleasant garden. Our order for two cream teas was promptly taken and the scones, jam and cream soon arrived with pot of tea to follow. After about 10 minutes when we had each eaten one of our scones, still no tea....

Reasonably priced compared to others in Topsham which are overpriced. Service with a smile and nice choice of home made cakes

We had an excellent lunch here. The quiche was delicious - the pastry melted in the mouth! Also, the deserts are to die for! We are regular visitors to The Georgian Tea Rooms and can honestly say that we have never been disappointed. Very good value for money.

Three of us ate here one lunch time, we all had fish which was perfectly cooked, all served with seasonal fresh veg. The rhubarb crumble I had for dessert was definitely the best I had ever had!
