Great visit. Had a Welsh Rarebit topped with poached egg, followed by a cream tea. All went down very well, thank you very much..! It was our third gluten free cream tea in Torbay, but the first where the scones tasted like scones. First class.

Went in with my boyfriend for breakfast. I wanted my breakfast with brown toast and he wanted white toast. The toast came-1 slice per person- and both were white. Said I asked for brown and the waiter came and took the wrong slice of white away. It made me chuckle that they couldn't just leave it there and bring me... More

The breakfast was delicious and came with some fresh bread which is the best gluten free bread I've ever had! My... More

We have been several times over the years, long before they were on the TV and became well known from that. The SInging Kettle is as non-corporate as you can get. All the cakes (which are its main appeal and draw) are home made even the coffee and tea are blended specifically for them. The staff especially the daughter (who's... More
