We walked from Slapton Sands along the Devon Coast Path to Blackpool Sands, and believe me when I tell you we needed refreshments when we arrived. After a fabulous, and rather exhausting walk, we chose a picnic table outside, in the sun, overlooking the beach....More

Came here to enjoy the scenic beach and chill. The drinks are nice and the fries are to die for. The amaretto and apple cake was very nice, would definitely recommend having it! Nice cafe and reasonably priced.

The charges change throughout the season. Up to £7 for the day last year however the price reduced during the day. If using Venus for an evening meal then arriving late is free.
