Visited this very cramped tearoom with my husband and when the waiter came over to serve us I asked what cakes they had. With a flick of his hand he told me they were all in the window and in a cabinet (which was surrounded by tables and chairs and therefore not easily accessible) then he just walked away. I... More

Loved the old world charm of this tea shop. Impressed with China cups and saucers teapot and tea strainer ( proper tea ) really good choice of teas and cakes. Pleasant shop. Our waiter gave the impression he'd prefer not to be there.

We had tea and cake a few days ago at this 'old world' Totnes tearoom. If you haven't visited then PLEASE!!!! this is a MUST!!!! As a rule, I don't drink tea, I have never really cared for it but I decided to try their ORANGE BLOSSOM and it was just superb. We both had cakes which were utterly delicious.... More

Fantastic cappuccino cake, not quite the latte I was expecting but still very good (so in fact a nice surprise), dog friendly and proper china and tea-room surroundings. The only thing less than ideal was the proprietor seated at the next table piled up with papers - handy if you needed him, but had I been on my own I'd... More

Grey's is a wonderfully quirky tea room. They serve a wide range of teas, and serve delicious home made cakes. For lunch they serve soups and lovely omelettes and salads - see photo. Please note they are not open on Sunday's

The selection of tea available is amazing. Anyone who enjoys their tea will love it! It's a quaint tearoom where you can enjoy a quiet lunch or afternoon tea. The cream tea offers a generous amount of clotted cream and jam (something that is lacking in many places that offer cream teas). Traditional bone china is used. A lovely range... More

Grey's Tearooms offers a glimpse into the past when proper China and sumptuous home made cake was a norm for the resting traveller. There is a fantastic array of teas to choose from, together with a splendid choice of cakes. I had coffee and walnut (laced with alcohol) and a classic blend of tea. Spare hot water supplied for more... More

We wanted a refreshing drink and opted for Grey's. The range of tea's available is amazing and the one I choose was absolutely excellent. The range of cakes also looked stunning so we had to have a snack as well. I decided on a Totnes Tea which was served with style ( as was my wife's Cream Tea) and was... More

We enjoyed a Cream Tea here which was excellent. Unique décor and lovely table setting as you wait for excellent scones, clotted cream and 2 jam selections. The tea itself was of high quality. After your visit to Totnes centre do visit this special Tearooms.
