Fabulous service

Oh what a delight to have tea here. They were so charming and everyone seemed in a good mood. We literally only had tea here after parking at the top of town but we will be back again next time we are in totnes

First visit to beautiful Totnes, with a friend, who advised that we visit Grey's yea rooms.Delightful, quintessential England.....Tea served in the appropriate traditional manner. Bit cramped, but what a small price for excellence. Customer service, excellent.

Very attractive setting.inviting when peering in.Excellent selection of cakes,reasonable size although not huge slices.Lovely fine china,excellent flavour tea(and my friend tells me coffee). The real "upside" for me was the heavy silver teapot/hot water jug which you usually only find in hotels and just makes afternoon tea so much more of a treat. The only downside was that the sugar...

Been here for the last 4 years & we hope it never changes! Lovely food, Lovely people, Lovely place! What more could you ask for? My Mrs doesn't have a sweet tooth but she loves the cream teas. I'll scoff anything so it's heaven for me! Tuna omelette for me today followed by Lemon Drizzle cake. :-)

If only for a proper pot of leaf tea ,elegantly presented in china cups and silver pot ,but lured in by the antiques in the window(all for a local charity)one COULD ignore the delicious cakes and cream teas but the real delight is the souffle omelettes and wonderful homemade soups ......and then maybe a small slice of lemon cake ?!but...

On a rainy Wednesday afternoon, whilst on holiday, we had a quick Google for Devon Cream Teas in Totnes and this place came up as first option. It is a charming little place but looks like an Antiques shop at first glance, we didn't realise we had found it till I looked in the other window and saw the cakes.... More

What a lovely little tea room! The owners were so nice and attended to my every need. Everything was just right! I wish I had come each day I was in Totnes! Now I will have to visit again and make this my place to go each afternoon.

This place can be mistaken for an antiques shop as it is full of clutter and fine bone china collections. Please do not let put you off as the coffee and cake here are simply excellent and the service charming. One of the best cakes I have ever tasted!!! Lovely!.

Having previously frequented this establishment (and, indeed, recommending it to others), we are sorry that our recent experience means that we will no longer be visiting. We arrived as a group of four and, after waiting (whilst two of the staff looked on from a nearby table), we were offered two tables of two by a seemingly disinterested and surly... More
