Setting is a courtyard garden full of flowers, close to a cliff top down land, in beautiful Devon. The service is attentive, plus a lot. Everything is served on pristine bone china, including Victorian cake stands. The menu has every kind of tea time treat you can think of, plus some. I chose the Half Angel, which consisted of a...

This is a very unique experience. traditional tea and cake. everything is home made and the special touches made to presentation, and service. The mismatch china is quirky and i love the atmosphere here. Stunning views over the babbacombe downs.

Visited Angels for my grandmothers birthday, as we know how busy it gets we booked well in advance and made them aware there would be 9 of us. As expected it was busy which is lovely to see but we did not expect to be told after ordering our food there was no bread left for the sandwiches. We asked... More

I absolutely love it here! The food, the restaurant, the atmosphere is just wonderful. I recommend the angelic full tea to share with a friend. I also recommend that you book before you plan to go to angels as it does get mighty busy as it is soo popular.

On a sunny afternoon me and my family decided to visit. We initially sat outside however the weather turned and it started to rain, we were kindly escorted to a table which was reserved but we were given it for 90mins. I would recommend you book a table here as the tearoom is quite small. We all either had a... More

We were recommended this place so thought we'd give it a try. There's may different combinations you can have, so we opted for Cherub tea which included a sandwich of your choice, scone and clotted cream/jams and pot of tea. We sat outside and our cream tea came up in old fashioned china and tiered cake stand.Out of the sandiwches,... More

Angels tea rooms is quaint and cramped, however the food is good. I would consider it pricey for what it is and highly recommend you reserve a table ahead of time. A few people has to leave disappointed in the short time I was there. Inside is cramped but outside is o.k. If the weather is good,

Visiting from Australia we have been lucky enough to sample some excellent tea rooms and cafes in the UK, this was not one of them. We were moved from the table we were initially sat at due to quote "The table being reserved"; however we have real doubts that it was. There was no reserved sign at the table and... More
