A real treat for myself and my daughter. My daughter always has the bakewell slice and is never disappointed. The coffee and hot chocolate are delicious and are presented beautifully in attractive bone China teacups. Lovely staff and clean tearoom. It isn't cheap but as a treat it is definitely worth the extra.

If you are in the lovely town of Ashburton on the edge of Dartmoor then Taylor's is the place for a cuppa and homemade cake/sandwich. They use lovely bone China cups and saucers, the feel of the place is peaceful and 'proper tea room' .

Wonderful little tea room, with a great assortment of teas and cakes. Carrot cake and treacle tart were scrumptious.

Went for lunch with some of my friends, it was excellent food, hot soup with a warmed delicious cheese scone on the side. The service was quick and the waitresses where delightful and smiley. The cakes where to die for 😍 especially there warm rich treacle tart served with clotted cream and strawberries. I would defiantly recommend Taylors tea rooms... More

I'd call this an 'old fashioned' tea shop. Relaxing, soft decor and a wonderful selection of cakes! Menu for a tea shop was quite wide and vegetarians etc well catered for. Staff were great and customers not rushed over their tea, food and cakes and service with a smile. The loo is outside but tastefuly decorated and its location actually... More

I was invited here for lunch - confess it would not have been my choice as I'm not a fan of sandwiches. The hot menu is very limited. The fish cakes sounded promising but were overcooked and served in a sweet brioche bun which was a bit of a weird combo. Service was very slow - actually had to get... More

Quintessential English tea room. Fine bone china, vintage decor and good service. We had a lovely cream tea (although I chose the GF option with a coffee, because I'm awkward!) but they were gracious and accommodating. Lots of glorious homemade cakes under glass with good GF options. Fab treat.

Description
Located in the ancient stannary town of Ashburton on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Tea at Taylors offers a taste of old England when the formality of tea was all the rage. Set amongst period antiques and soft furnishings, we hope that you might love the decor and ambiance as much as the home baking.
