“The perfect place to have a Devon cream tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

In the town's main street, we suddenly discovered this beautiful tea room.
Typical tea room atmosphere, great China and an incredible choice of pies.
Totnes is very nice as such, but you will enjoy this lovely place where time has stopped and you can enjoy life's little pleasures.

“An absolute must if you like cream teas and cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

My favourite tearoom of all time...we went twice - excellent cream teas and cakes and meringues and all within the cosy walls of an old fashioned tearoom.

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

In Totnes for the day, decided that this venue looked interesting ..... And it was like taking a step back in time. Lovely service, fabulous china, the cakes looked fantastic, we had hot buttered crumpets which were delicious. Downside is that the room is very crowded, there was barely room to move, and my 'ordinary' tea tasted perfumed, as if the teapot had previously been used for Earl Grey (which I dislike, sorry!). But it was an experience...

“Fantastic - beautiful food, great service. What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2012

Lightest omelettes and scones, fresh fresh fresh food. Just wonderful, a delightful find on a rainy day. Just great. GO VISIT! Their Earl Grey tea is a revelation.You can also buy some to take home. I am nearly out, reminder to self to get more. You will really enjoy the 'back in time' atmosphere, the china, tea strainers, no rush and delicious food. Can't wait to go back.

“Exceptional !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

Gary, David and Julie run the best possible 'old skool' quintessentially English establishment. Superb leaf tea and vittles provision, especially their 'Chrispy Crumpets' ! Unreservedly recommended, well played all concerned !
