Very disappointed today as this used to be a gorgeous, albeit a bit chintzy tearoom. The soft furnishings such as tablecloths and window dressing have been stripped out with the result that there was nothing to absorb the ambient noise. I could barely hear my...More

yes, but is difficult in the summer time, it is possible to park in the " Walls Hill Down " car park next to the "Old Coach House " pub, you will have to pay, but worth the walk if you have time.

Not sure. I would think so. Perhaps phone them if you need to clarify. The teas are really scrumptious. Enjoy.

A little taste of heaven in a beautiful part of Devon! Angels is a perfect place for Devonshire Cream Tea looking onto the seafront in Babbacombe. Very popular with the locals and recommended to holiday makers.
