Our second visit. Well worth it too. I had the smaller breakfast with choice of any four items, toast and tea. Everything was perfect and tasted really good. My wife opted for a potato with chilli filling with a sumptuous salad garnish. A pleasant place to eat or just have tea. The tea is served... read more

We enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch at Babbinis at a very reasonable price. The outside of the tearoom looks unprepossessing so it was a very pleasant surprise to step inside and find a comfortable dining area with welcoming staff. Cushions on the back of the chairs made the seating very comfortable. The tearoom has no license but clients are able... More

We held my mum's 90th birthday party here at the beginning of November and it was faultless. The staff could not do enough for us. The food was magnificent and they produced everything I asked for. A constant supply of tea and coffee. We never felt rushed and mum loved every minute of it. The lemon drizzle and Victoria sandwich... More

My daughter and I recently made a spur of the moment, Sunday afternoon visit to Babbinis, thinking it closed at 5. We arrived at 3.45 and discovered it actually closed at 4; however, we were made so welcome by the Babbinis and assured that it wasn't a problem because they would be doing 'bits and pieces' for a while yet....

Just returned from Babbinis Tearoom in Abbotskerswell, its a lovely quaint little village! I had to treat myself to a Babbinis full breakfast, which didn't disappoint!! The hash browns are homemade with a touch of cheese- amazing! I even asked the chef where he bought his sausages as they where delicious! They are locally sourced of course as are most... More

Had a super Sunday roast with a friend here. Everything was spot on and we were offered extra gravy and veg too. Had a lovely creme brûlée to finish. Will definitely go back, the service was great and it was all very good value.

I had the exclusive use of the restaurant for the evening of my birthday. 24 of us sat down to a three course meal with a Cornish theme. The ham terrine and the smoked trout were excellent but the pastie and the stargazy pie were to die for. Puds were super too. Well done Kevin and Sam. All my guests... More
