I love the gallery area and have purchased a lot over the years. However the restaurant is mediocre at best , especially as competition in Bovey has become far better

A lot of interesting artwork and beautiful jewellery to see. There is a nice restaurant on the first floor, but they only seem to serve hot food after 12 noon.

We are glad you enjoyed our crafts on show. We do have a breakfast menu too which includes scrambled eggs on hot toast etc and that is served from when we open until 11am.

Some items were attractive but generally very expensive leaving you to question who would buy it. On the plus side, the terrace cafe was nice!

We stopped off here briefly when travelling down from South Zeal to stay at Burgh Island. Lots of beautiful works, well displayed in a wonderful setting with very pleasant staff - needless to say, we did not come away emptying handed!
