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

If you live in Torbay, then you will know Angels. We have had many visits here and our visit today was as good as usual. We booked in advance, always a good idea as they are always busy. We had the cherub tea and everything was great. The tea, fresh and plentiful, the sandwiches were generously filled, the warm scones... More

We took our mum here for a full afternoon tea. It's for two people to share to be honest there's so much food enough really for 3. Wonderful homemade food, cakes and sandwiches. Although it was packed the service was excellent couldn't do enough for us. My mum was amazed how lovely it all was. Make a visit but you... More

Were turned away at the door in a very rude manner by a man with a scruffy beard as we had not booked! We turned up at 11am and told all tables were reserved until 4pm, no help was given or alternative.
