First class food and service

Called in on the off chance for a quick cuppa, which became a cuppa and delicious cake. Service was excellent, the ambience was excellent and the tea and cake was delicious

Stopped in for lunch and tea on the recommendation of a Totnes local. Wonderful selection of teas, sandwiches and cakes. Ambiance was elegant yet inviting. Great service by the staff. Attentive and not intrusive. Check out the Grilled cheese sandwich English tea room style. Yum!

Lovely cream tea, generous with cream and jam, excellent sandwiches and very unusual but nice beetroot soup followed by a delicious lemon drizzle cake filled with lemon curd. Beautiful surroundings

Just what we needed on a busy Saturday to escape for hour from the rain and the shoppers. If you are in Totnes head away from the madness of the market (not sure if it is on every day) and head to the other end of town for lovely cakes and proper tea.

Step off the main street of Totnes into Vintage Tea and you step into an oasis of calm rarely found in any eating establishment today. The light from the glass atrium roof enhances the serene atmosphere, as do the tables which are a comfortable distance apart, with attractive clothes and china. They serve a range of light snacks, sandwiches, puddings,... More

The classic English tearoom, very classy and elegant. All fine teas and puddings that will really make you feel like part of the place even if you're a foreigner. Recommended for the five o'clock tea.

Stopped for morning coffee on arrival in Totnes. Beautiful, elegant tearoom and lovely service. Wide range of tea/coffee available. Unfortunately we were still full from breakfast but the cakes looked gorgeous. Well worth a visit and certainly one I will return to when next in the area.

Best cheese scone I have ever tasted. We were sat in the window and while we were there 3 couples looked through the window but didn't come in !!! It does look a bit like a shop also, we think it may have been this reason why they didn't come in. I wanted to grab them and tell them to... More

Its what I look for in a tea room. Fine bone china, clean and welcoming and there it is in Totnes sitting at the bottom of the main sT. Tables set with the finest bone china, varying patterns all very attractive. The usual tea room fare but all sourced locally. I loved it, its so good to find a place... More

We visited here during the half term to get our teenagers out of the house and get them to speak in full sentences (for a change) while sharing a light lunch. There is a refinement and attention to small details here that make visiting this tea room a real pleasure. The nicely grouped tables each use a different pattern of... More
