We went there and we had a cream tea, I think it was called the thunderstorm, this was a cream tea of all cream teas with; scones of your choice accompanied with Strawberry jam; maple syrup; pear preserve; blackcurrant jam; and a few I can't remember. This is all served with a pot of tea. I am drooling just thinking... More

Popped in to have a cuppa and cake. All good but served by a young woman who had her midrift showing a belly button jewel etc., which is not what I would expect in an eatery! Almost as bad as a builder's bum. Plus staff cleaning the front of the display where cakes were still on the shelf even though... More

Sunny spot. Great atmosphere to eat traditional tea out under a blue sky. Seagulls can be a nuisance. Friendly staff.

We could not believe how much food we were served with the high tea. Everything seems to have been made on the premises and was all fresh and tasty. Included sandwiches, toasted tea cakes, cake and a cream tea. Well worth the visit. Book beforehand to ensure a table as it gets very busy.

I love Angels Tea Room, I am always so pleased and full on leaving. The Cherub's Tea is what I normally order and sometimes I even share this with my Mother, as it is enough for both of us. The Cherub's Tea is a sandwich of your choice, of which there is lots to selections to choose. Also, the Cherub's... More
