I took my mum for Mother's Day and we were both very disappointed and are in no hurry to return. Yes, the afternoon tea we had was lovely and you cannot fault the food, however the customer service is severely lacking. The tables are not clean from the customers before you, and the staff (some, not all) are just plain... More

I have been to this tea room on several occasions now but will not go again. It is not clean. Far too noisy, you can't speak to the person opposite you. Scones are of a very poor standard, small and hard, very small portions of jam and cream. I do not consider that you get value for money. In the... More

We were bought vouchers for afternoon tea by my very thoughtful step-daughter and decided to use them whilst we were on leave from work. We had a gorgeous afternoon tea, very civilised, and all the food delicious. It was far too good to leave any but we left vowing we would never eat again? The sandiches were so fresh and... More

It's been about 12 months since my last visit to Angels, a cafe I used to highly recommend for their breakfasts. Unfortunately this visit was a major let down. When we arrived and was seated, it was immediately apparent that our table had not been cleaned. There were stains on the table cloth and crumbs underneath. We also couldn't stop... More

We visited Angel Tea Rooms without a reservation but wished we had booked in advance (recommend you do to avoid disappointment) this is one of the nicest places to have tea in Devon. Although we had not booked a table and they were booked up for the afternoon, they managed to find a table for the two of us after... More

My husband and I were really looking forward to a visit to the Angels tea room during our stay in Torquay. The sandwiches and scones were really delicious. I was however, a little disappointed to see that the staff didn't clean our table properly prior to seating us at our table. The previous occupants crumbs were left! The tables are... More

If you're a fan of cream teas you have to try Angels on Babbacombe Downs if you haven't been before. It's reputation is well deserved. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Even though our reservation had been "lost" they immediately sorted out a table for us despite it being very busy and full. We had two choices from the "teas" menu... More

My friend booked a table for three of us to have a get-together lunch at Angels tea rooms. We had not seen each other for some 6 months and were looking forward to a leisurely catch-up in a pleasant atmosphere. We arrived promptly and were seated; the girl was keen to take our order swiftly. We didn't realise till the... More
