Been recommended to go here for a while and decided to go with my son whose 7 at short notice. It wasn't a great day and we're taking my dog for a walk on the downs so needed to sit outside, although on arrival we were actually told they allow dogs inside which is nice to know for the future....

My husband and I recently enjoyed a cream tea at Angels which was fabulous, the staff were really nice and very attentive. The cream tea was served with both strawberry and raspberry jams along with choice of scones and clotted cream, we also got proper tea which was wonderful, we will definitely return

Every time we come to Devon we make a point of enjoying afternoon tea at Angels. It really is great value for money and never disappoints. Of course the interior is quirky but that is part of its charm. The staff are all very friendly and respond courteously and attentively to any requests. I can't manage the full Angel tea... More

A lovely tearoom, relaxed sunny but chilly afternoon on Babbacombe front........Cherubs Tea (sandwiches and scone of your choice and tea in elegant china cups) couldn't have asked for more really. Tried to book a table inside but very busy and ended up sitting outside with a 'snuggle me blanket' (blankets in a basket for customer use) overhead heaters were on... More

We came here for a lunch visit. The Cherubs Tea (sandwich of your choice plus scone of your choice plus tea or coffee) was satisfactory and good value for cost but nothing special. For such a highly rated tea room, expected more. Great view from outside but inside decor left a lot to be desired. Service was as you expect... More

Have heard so many good things about this tearoom, so my husband and myself decided to visit for our Wedding anniversary, it was a lovely sunny day and we sat outside. Really enjoyed our afternoon tea. Have booked again for my 60th Birthday treat. They serve real tea,not bags in china cups, which made it feel like and old fashion... More
