I have visited this place on many occasions and it is always excellent standard in every way. The food is to die for and it is easily the best cream tea available in the bay. Booking is essential as it is always very busy.

We went to the tea room after walking for 4 hours from Torquay town center (coastal walk). The devonshire clotted cream with scones were very scrumptious. The homemade scones were the best I ever tasted. We sat outside and the view was wonderful.

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.
