Although this is listed as Newton Abbot it is in fact in the nearby village of Abbots Kerswell. What a little gem it is with a warm welcome from the owners,a delicious range of freshly prepared homemade food. The breakfast deserves a special mention with locally sourced bacon and sausage as well as the homemade hash browns. Well worth the... More

We went for dinner with friends for the French theme night. The tearoom is unpretentious and so is the food & service. The food was tasty but not special in any way. The service friendly enough but rather quick between meals, nor really rushed though. This is a tearoom offering something extra and trying hard to please. Worth a go

This was our second visit to Babbinis, we met our friends for the Italian Evening. The food was superbly cooked, table decorations were lovely. Staff were very friendly and helpful and very professional. Would highly recommend Babbinis. Rating an easy 10/10.

We like Babbinis breakfasts. I thought we'd read the papers over a typical, leisurely breakfast watching the village come alive through the large windows on Sunday morning. But no, instead we had sixteen friends join us at a long table beautifully decorated by Sam and a breakfast superbly cooked by Kevin. They hosted a brilliant event so well. I will... More

Kevin cooked with help from Leyla a superb indian meal. Sam as usual served it beautifully. The strength of the curry was just right for me and will have suited most palates. Lovely starter and sweets.

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 up in proper China which... 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
