My favourite tea room. Have just returned from our lunch. For the first time the Cherubs tea defeated me, couldn't quite manage to eat it all. My husband had the big breakfast and he struggled to eat it all but wouldn't be defeated. Lovely hot tea and coffee completed the meal. This tea room never lets us down on the... More

We decided to go to Angels at lunchtime. We were fortunate to get a table, as we hadn't made a reservation. The scones were wonderfully light and fluffy, with lashings of clotted cream and two different types of jam. The service was excellent, too.

I shared with my another attendee on one of their package deals and together we decided from an endless list of sandwich fillings on choice of different breads... More

I'm 41 weeks pregnant and the cravings are becoming out of my control, today I decided it was an utter NEED to get a cherubs tea from Angels, but by the time I left it was already 5 o'clock. I had cut it very, very fine and by time I got there there was nobody inside, all beautifully set up... More

Had the Angel breakfast but sadly lacking in taste of any kind from the sausage to the black pudding to the tasteless egg . The toast and marmalade for the end of the meal was served with the breakfast so was cold.on a good note the staff where very good and attentive

Angels is a proper tea room with vintage mismatched crockery, little tables for 2 and cake stands piled high with home made goodies. We visited in search of cream tea perfection and found far more, the menu offers options beyond our dreams and will need a re-visit to explore fully. This time we opted for the tasty ginger option and... More

Visited here with my friend as I was recommended by another friend who regularly comes here. We sat outside as we didn't book which was fine as there was a baby shower party inside and it was quite busy and crammed. We had a sparkling cream tea. The scones were beautiful (white choc Chip especially) and the bumble berry jam... More
