We visited here for a cream tea as we had been told it was nearest to where we were by tourist information. When we entered we thought it looked lovely and I was quite excited to eat here. We were seated in an appropriate position (we had a sleeping baby in a pram) so we could put the pram to one side comfortably. When we ordered we asked for 2 Devon cream teas which said it came with 2 scones. When the waitress brought our tea over (which was leaf tea served in beautiful teapots) she asked if we wanted one or two scones. We weren't sure why she was asking as we had ordered two cream teas which would be 2 scones each so we said two but then I did call her back and say I'd just have one but then another waitress looked at us all confused and said that a cream tea comes with 2 scones so we said that was fine. The waitress then brought us over just 2 scones (one each) and it all got rather confusing. We ended up asking what was going on and they said they presumed we just wanted cream tea for one (even though we had ordered it for two). Anyway, we stuck with what we had and was satisfied. My husband was a little disappointed with his scone as it fell apart and he found it difficult to pick up to eat. By this point our son had woken up and to be honest we just felt u comfortable being there with him. As most 16 months old are, he was a little noisy but we just felt as if we needed to leave (no one said anything to us-just a feeling we had). Before we left he needed changing and there were no baby changing facilities so I ended up changing him on the toilet floor. I think it was a lovely decorated tea room and I would possibly return but not with a child. Maybe more appropriate for 'ladies who lunch' rather than a young family.
