Excellent tea rooms

We tried this vintage tea rooms in Totnes and were pleasantly pleased with the ambiance, decor, staff and most of all the food. It was very busy but the staff took their time with us and couldn't have been more welcoming. It was very well laid out and so light and airy. Nothing has been stunted... read more

Have been here a few times for their excellent cream teas. Made a special visit on Bank Holiday Monday with some guests only to find it closed. For a tourist facing business it is surprising for it to be closed on the last public holiday of the summer.

very comfortable, good quality, a little more expensive than elsewhere but we will return when next in the area. Excellent wash room. Lovely bone china crockery.

Ok - so it was only two teas and two toasted sandwiches. But the White and green teas came in pretty teapots with proper teacups. And the cheese and cheese/ham toasties were oozing. That will do for us.

This is a beautiful little tea shop! The first time I visited, the owner was so welcoming and kind to me. I had my very first Crumpet and it was delicious! I lingered for over an hour sipping my tea and reading a book. When traveling, it is wonderful to find a nice place to "be" for a little while... More

Enjoyed a return visit to this tea room - surprisingly spacious, light and airy at the rear of the premises with it's glass roof. Offers an area of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the shops. Didn't arrive until late afternoon so only really had time for some tea and cake. Thoroughly recommend the Lemon sponge with its... More

Took a boat trip from Dartmouth and Totness and stopped for afternoon tea. Service was excellent and food delicious. We had a cream tea and a slice of lemon cake all served off china crockery.
