Faultless in their presentation of a cream tea ,fresh fruit jams,clotted cream and warm soft scones on floral china plate,or crispy toasted crumpets snuggled under a silver cloche,with finely grated cheddar and some fresh salad all accompanied by leaf tea of your choice .Perfection. Which is why people are as loyal to this tea shop as they are to their... More

If you are ever lucky enough to find a spare table in this adorable little Totnes tea room then spoil yourself with a scrumptious cream tea or slice of something nice. Have been going here for years and like to step back in time occasionally. The meals are lovely too. Can't rate it high enough.

Oh what a delight to have tea here. They were so charming and everyone seemed in a good mood. We literally only had tea here after parking at the top of town but we will be back again next time we are in totnes

First visit to beautiful Totnes, with a friend, who advised that we visit Grey's yea rooms.Delightful, quintessential England.....Tea served in the appropriate traditional manner. Bit cramped, but what a small price for excellence. Customer service, excellent.

Very attractive setting.inviting when peering in.Excellent selection of cakes,reasonable size although not huge slices.Lovely fine china,excellent flavour tea(and my friend tells me coffee). The real "upside" for me was the heavy silver teapot/hot water jug which you usually only find in hotels and just makes afternoon tea so much more of a treat. The only downside was that the sugar...

Been here for the last 4 years & we hope it never changes! Lovely food, Lovely people, Lovely place! What more could you ask for? My Mrs doesn't have a sweet tooth but she loves the cream teas. I'll scoff anything so it's heaven for me! Tuna omelette for me today followed by Lemon Drizzle cake. :-)

If only for a proper pot of leaf tea ,elegantly presented in china cups and silver pot ,but lured in by the antiques in the window(all for a local charity)one COULD ignore the delicious cakes and cream teas but the real delight is the souffle omelettes and wonderful homemade soups ......and then maybe a small slice of lemon cake ?!but...

On a rainy Wednesday afternoon, whilst on holiday, we had a quick Google for Devon Cream Teas in Totnes and this place came up as first option. It is a charming little place but looks like an Antiques shop at first glance, we didn't realise we had found it till I looked in the other window and saw the cakes.... More

What a lovely little tea room! The owners were so nice and attended to my every need. Everything was just right! I wish I had come each day I was in Totnes! Now I will have to visit again and make this my place to go each afternoon.
