I'm a bit puzzled, too, why one would want a half space there. But it is
customizable. How depends upon whether you are using refstyle or
prettyref. For refstyle:

\newref{tab}{name = {table\thinspace{}}, Name = {Table\thinspace{}}}

Etc, if you want to redefine for the plural case.

For prettyref:

\newrefformat{tab}{Table\thinspace\ref{#1}}
