Called in at Angels today on the recommendation of the owner of the Ke'thla B&B in Torquay. Was not disappointed.

When we arrived they were busy but we had already been warned about this. The staff apologised for not being able to offer us a table but asked if we would mind sitting outside which we did. Ordered the Angel Full Tea (for 2) which included sandwiches, cinnimon toast, scones with jam and cream, a pot of tea and a slice of cake. As we were waiting for it to arrive a member of staff came out to us to say a table had become available indoors and so we moved inside. The sandwiches were really nice (loads of filling) as was the toast. You have to be careful not to get too full before you get to the scones. We had the cherry scones and they were fab. The tea came in a tea pot and was proper tea, not a tea bag in sight !

Overall a great cream tea experience and we would recommend this to anyone, next time we might book though to ensure we get a table ! Another tip would be not to bother having breakfast beforehand !!

I'm a 'new' Devonian - only lived in Torquay for three years. I finally discovered this treasure after visiting many other tea rooms around. Don't get me wrong, there are other,lovely little tea rooms but this has to be the best. The scones are fabulous;many different kinds to try. I recommend the ginger scones which come with two types of ginger jam. The Cherubs Tea with a sandwich of your choice (and a decent sandwich at that) on whichever bread you like with a scone of your choice as well. Tea in quaint mismatched tea-sets to go with it or a great cup of coffee. How often does a tea-room do a great cup of coffee? I often go to the Angels with a friend who is gluten-free - not a problem for them at all!

Angels is delightfully individualist in a world of bland corporateness. The decor is a bit 'girly' with angels, foliage and fairy lights, but I like that. Tea is served in vintage teapots and cups and saucers, and there is a big choice of scones, teas and jams to choose from. A good place to visit after going to the Model Village, the cliff railway or Bygones.

Inside & outside seating. Varied menu and prices, with children's portions too. To guarantee a table, it is wise to book for a large party. A popular restaurant with the locals!
