This is a tricky one, as per the title this is nice quality tea and the cake, however service is painfully slow and the price is just to high. I give an average but the food is very good the service terrible the price poor.

Lovely shop with a nice light bites menu. If you want a proper afternoon tea, this is the place - lovely china, varieties of tea and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Service can be slow at weekends and at busy times. Would particularly recommend the amaretto...More

Pleasant dining area, with tables well spaced out. Ordered Brie and Cranberry sandwich, which was nicely presented. My husband had the cheese selection with a cheese scone. Again nicely presented, although butter would have been nice to go in the scone. Cakes looked very nice,...More

One thing is for certain, the carrot cake is to die for. As to the coffee it is far from distinctive; it is bitter, rather gritty and simply nothing special. The service was functional and clinically aloof rather than friendly and attentive and the overall...More

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.
