We spent 2 weeks in Stoke Gabriel last June and were fortunate enough to discover Emmas. We dined there on 3 occasions, including a Sunday lunch to die for. Emmas played a huge part in our decision to return to Stoke Gabriel again in 2017.

No idea. Sorry
Visiting Stoke Gabriel in September and am trying to find out days when Emma's is open during the evening. Seems to be Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, is this correct ?

Yes I believe there is limited opening for the restaurant If you are there on a Saturday then I would book it now as it is tiny and very popular. Don't forget to bring your own wine! Have a great time
