Called in last week at lunchtime for sandwiches and cake, only to be told by a rather unfriendly waitress that they had run out of bread and therefore couldn't provide sandwiches - there is a grocery shop just two doors away that sells bread! Very disappointed as we have eaten here before and enjoyed the tea and cakes. We left... More

Thank you for your review. We are a small independent tea shop and we use locally sourced fresh produce. I am sorry that we ran out of bread on the day you visited, it had been very busy and at about 2.30pm I had an order for 8 sandwiches which used up the last of the bread. At that point... More

Visited in December with 2 young children, and although menu not particularly catered for young kids they did a sandwich for him which was nice. Place got quite busy whilst we were there. Not much room for a pram but they were accommodating to us helping us find somewhere to put it. Lots of nice lunch places in the town,... More

Thank you for your review. We are very compact but we try to accommodate everyone and provide highchairs for the little ones and although we don't have a separate childrens menu we try to offer small dinners or sandwiches for them. More

Very popular place with lovely friendly staff. Sunday lunch was all home cooked and didn't take too long to arrive. The puddings were very nice and the afternoon teas coming out looked delicious. Will definitely pop back for one of those when next in Budleigh.

Lovely little tea room. Had the freshest sandwich's we've ever had. Service was very good. We felt ver young as a lot of the local residents were in there and obviously regulars. Lovely atmosphere .

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your visit, we only use fresh bread delivered daily from the local bakery and we find this makes the best sandwiches. Don't be put off by the average age of the Budleigh residents - apparently you live forever here!! More

A very lovely & quaint place. Had afternoon tea here & the tea was served with a proper cup & saucer & the scone was homemade & absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic & very reasonably priced.

We went on others' reviews of this tearoom and very glad that we did. I had a veggie breakfast whilst my husband had the full English. Both came out fairly quickly and were very tasty. The tea room is quaint and had both locals and visitors like us. Thoroughly recommended.

We have visited this cafe a number of times and always had excellent sandwiches. Today we were turned away until after 2 because we didn't want to order hot food! The place had tables free. This has never happened before, so we won't be visiting again!
