I do not know the owners nor do I have any idea about their attitude towards children per se. I was so delighted with the Tearoom that I wanted to give it a favourable review - when I went on to the Trip Advisor website and read two previous reviews I was very surprised at the adverse comments!
As Brightonians we went with relatives who live in Exeter for a light lunch. It was reasonably priced and very tasty. It was a late lunch so by the time we were ready to go the early Cream Teaers were arriving - and what they were being served almost made us want to move straight on to tea................and if you don't like cream teas and scones then the homemade cakes looked wonderful too! Our next visit will definitely be for tea!
One comment about the two waitresses. They were so pleasant - smiling at everyone throughout our stay at a very busy time of the day. They were friendly, obliging, helpful and efficient and a credit to the establishment - can't possibly be the same ones that upset Natalie and Collette (previous reviewers).
One final comment about the teashop itself: it is relatively small and certainly not physically pushchair friendly. As a grandparent with young pushchair grandchildren I do not expect every establishment to cater easily or happily with our children: we accept that some smaller establishments just cannot cope and we avoid them rather than force ourselves in and then complain...........
