My mum and I headed for Angels one Saturday afternoon and were lucky enough to find a table available for afternoon tea. Mum was visiting me for a week and I suggested I treat her to a cream tea. We chose something from the set menu and were not disappointed. The sandwiches were bursting at the seams with the fillings,... More

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...

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 sat outside and our cream tea came up in old fashioned china and tiered cake stand.Out of the sandiwches,... More
