Upon visiting Torquay we came across a lovely tea room which served very tasty cream teas. Not only that, we got two scones with both our teas! Surroundings were very pleasant and we would definitely visit again if we're in the area.

Nothing special here, this tea room has been highly promoted in the press, but I don't really understand why. Service was friendly but table service would be better than order at the counter. Had lunch, which was OK ... just OK

My husband and I stopped here for a quick bite to eat and both had the cream tea. What a lovely treat! We had a large pot of tea to share and two lovely warm scones each, they didn't scrimp on the clotted cream and jam either with plenty for both of us. The service, price and quality were absolutely... More

Great place to stop at for a tea and cake or a famous cream tea. Lovely surroundings right on top of the harbour so you have a great view as you enjoy your tea. Staff look after you really well.

We have visited Torquay many times and I do not know how we have managed to miss this place. A cheery welcome, efficient service and a lovely cup of tea. My husband had the toasted teacake and I could smell the cinnamon from the opposite side of the table, it looked lovely and was told it tasted great. The chocolate... More

After getting drenched while walking around the harbour, we stopped in here for a coffee. We liked it so much we spent a good couple of hours in the armchairs enjoying tea and scones with clotted cream. The warm fruit scones were delicious- maybe a little more jam provided but yummy all the same. Will definitely return!
