Lukewarm weak coffee. Appallingly slow service and it would have been nice to butter my own tea cake. It was expensive for what it was. It was a pleasant room but due to poor service and quality of coffee i wpuld not return.

Located in the ancient stannary town of Ashburton on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Tea at Taylors offers a taste of old England when the formality of tea was all the rage. Set amongst period antiques and soft furnishings, we hope that you might love the decor and ambiance as much as the home baking.
