Had lunch recently. Sat near the door in cramped area. Had to keep moving to make access for people and prams. The staff kept slamming the door. It was ridiculously loud inside with far too many tables crammed into a small area. Distinctly average.

Over priced and over rated in my opinion. Facilities need a good overhaul and the decor around the place is really tired. My cream tea was standard. Won't be returning anytime soon.

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.
