“Best Cream Tea Ever”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Don't think the tea at Angels can be bettered. Had a set half tea between two of us and it was more than ample. Terrific scone...just the right texture with delicious jam and vast amount of cream plus huge sandwich with gorgeous filling, lovely cinnamon toast and homemade cake. All beautifully served and with the bonus of a sea view while sitting in the sunny garden. The only pity is we live too far away for it to become a regular haunt!

“Wow, if you like a cream tea read on.....”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Whilst staying in Shaldon we stumbled across this gem.

If you like a cream tea then this is the place to go! We went midweek but it was still really busy so I would definitely book if I went again to guarantee a spot.

I had the ginger cream tea which was amazing & a great price too.

We'll definitely be back when we're next in Devon.

“What A Gem of a Place”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

A place that you could miss as you walk along, Its a lovely setting very helpful staff,
The food was the best I have had at a restaurant for along time the Tea in a proper pot( Loose tea as well) with tea strainer and lovely china cup & saucer. It is best to book as we found out but they did squeeze us in.

No hesitation in recommending this place for a good breakfast lunch or afternoon tea.

“Ladies That Do Lunch”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

My two sisters and I visited for lunch last week as girls do when they meet up. Angels needs to be booked in advance as usually busy. It is a really a quaint and style tea room ,beautiful china table clothes etc. We ordered sandwiches ,baguettes and one of us had a jacket potato .The food is all make to order and we didn't have to wait too long. Well what a surprise the plate was a delight beautiful warm baguette, lovely flavoured cheese and a large diced salad .The staff were all dressed alike ,polite and worked hard .Well definitely go again.

“Best cream tea outside of Yorkshire”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Very busy place it's always worth booking here. The house tea is delicious and the scones are out of this world. Great service and very friendly staff. I would highly recommend the cream teas huge scones and plenty of cream and jam. Also part of the THHN children's charity which I hope they are very proud of.
