I'm sure the other items on the menu are excellent too, but I want to focus on the afternoon tea, because if you are a devotee of such things, you have GOT to try Angels. It's well sited: just off the promenade with spectacular views of the bay, and just yards from the Princes Road car park. Not that the... More

Which was great value! However, I was unable to finish my meal because we were bombarded by wasps!! They... More

We attended for an early lunch one sunny day, arriving with our well behaved 5yr old girl & twin 5 month old babies (both is their car seats - good job as this crammed place couldn't accommodate a double buggy or wheelchair). There was no space inside for us so we sat outside and ordered two sandwiches and a kids... More

had afternoon tea here yesterday. Very friendly waitress. Nice chintzy surroundings. Had choice of sandwiches, which when came were stuffed with my chosen filling. Followed by 2 scones of my choice and generous helpings of clotted cream and preserves. Cant fault it and for a treat was well worth it.

My husband and I were taking my disabled 92 year old uncle for a stroll along Babbacombe Downs and decided to go into Angels, as there appeared to be a few tables outside ideal for a wheelchair user. We approached a table which had no Reserved sign on it only to be told quite sharply by a female worker that... More

It is over a year since our last visit but while in Babbacombe yesterday and in want of coffee, we popped in ... Little has changed (that's good, it was pretty near perfect as it was) except in the courtyard new all-weather wicker-style chairs have replaced the plastic ones, and the tables no longer have cloths. We chose a table... More
