We saw the "dogs welcome" sign and headed straight for the place. There are so few places where dogs can join their owners inside and you do start to feel a bit of an outcast in Budleigh Salterton. Anyway, the tea shop was lovely, if a little expensive. The children joined me for a pot of tea (£2.20 each, served in a china teapot into china cups, and there were at least 3 cups each with the extra hot water we were offered - so quite reasonable). The scones were rather more pricey, but we were on holiday so we treated ourselves. In fact they were quite large and served with lashings of butter! I was disappointed with the outside toilet - they could have done a lot more with it ( too small, draughty, grotty-looking, with a wobbly seat) and my daughter (aged 8) wasn't impressed either. Overall we would visit again as they allow dogs and it was cosy inside on a wet and windy day.

We were taken to this place by friends who had visited before when the place was run by other folks,and they didn't know of the new regime.However ,they had nothing to worry about- the standards,they said were just as high,and we,too,were delighted, We had really scrumptious sandwiches;real ham,excellent smoked salmon and very flavoursome brie with splendid salad accompaniment. On other tables people were having cream teas, with very attractive china teasets and the place just oozed 50's quality atmosphere. Really lovely-not cheap but excellent quality-please keep it up,ladies and gentlemen!!

Just love this tea room. Enter by way of a little bridge over the brook. Met with a smile and tables dressed with lace cloths. Proper china crockery and tea pots make it taste like it should. Good service. This is what a tea room should be like. Great cream tea. Looked at the other tea shops in the town but none a patch on this. Will be back next year.

The food at the cosy tea pot is of the highest quality. Interesting salads, great sea food and lovely coffee. The welcome we received was warm and the service attentive and efficient. As we are fortunate enough to live locally we will return

We had a pot of tea for two, and a tea cake each. We thought it was far to expensive. The cost was £9. Sorry we did not go to the tea and tittle tattle.
