Such a lovely little gem

A friend recommended Angels to me. So my mother in law and I popped in for a pot of tea and a fruit scone with jam and clotted cream. It really was delicious and we shall be returning :) 10/10

Splash out and treat yourself - you won't be sorry!!! We spotted this place by chance opposite the sea front and how lucky we were to find it.

Me and my partner took my Nan here for a treat as we had not seen her for a while. Me and my partner had been to Angel's in the past and had a lovely afternoon tea. We therefore had high hopes about talking my Nan here this afternoon and had told her on many occasions how lovely the place... More

After a long walk along the beach Angels was the ultimate teatime spot. We came here first in the height of summer last year and it was extremely busy, so we thought it would be less so in March - not true! The place was heaving and a little uncomfortable as conversation was almost impossible. However that didn't really detract... More

Arrived was plonked next to the door not window, waited a life time to order. No room on table for food I HAD TO REMOVE ITEMS FROM TABLE TO MAKE ROOM FOR... More

This place has such fantastic food that to be quite honest there really is nothing else that matters. The sandwiches are filled with THE best produce and are huge. The scones delicious as is the jams provided. Cinnamon toast a delight and my wee boy adored the Victoria sponge, the remainder of which they bagged up so he could finish... More

I rang up and booked a table for 4 six weeks in advance so that I could enjoy afternoon tea on my 50th birthday as a little treat. Arrived on time on appointed day. Absolute chaos inside, looked a complete mess and was told no record of booking. No alternative suggested by unhelpful stafff, no apology. Won't be attempting to... More

I've only been to Angels once having been recommended to go by some local friends but I will definitely be going again. We only had scones as it was late morning - but they were lovely - very fresh and with loads of jam and cream. I tried the Mini Ginger tea as I do like stem ginger and the... More

Just as a response to Hollie P (how can you give a one-star rating when you never made it through the door? - that's just churlish), we didn't book, but were squeezed in. We only went in for coffee but ended up plumping for the mini cream teas, which scored eleven out of ten for both quantity and quality. Excellent... More
