We regularly make a coffee stop here when visiting the seafront, haven't yet managed to resist the cake! There has been a great improvement, happy staff who are so helpful; the feeling of everyone under pressure and being rushed has gone due I think to the new manager who is calm and efficient.. The meals are pretty good too!

We used to be regular breakfast eaters here, but after it was taken over by Wyevale, initially the quality of food dropped markedly, and the old staff mostly disappeared, replaced by staff that we found difficult to get a smile off! We stayed away for quite a while! However, after venturing back a couple of weeks ago for a 'trial',... More

This restaurant has an attractive setting and makes the most use of the area available without leaving diners feeling too close to the adjoining tables. The service is quick and the food attractively presented. There is a good range of dishes to suit all tastes and reasonably priced. The staff are pleasant and the manageress is attentive to diners and... More

I loved this place previously, i would always visit when ever in Devon. But after visiting this week I'm really really disappointed! The food is expensive for the portion sizes. I used to have a prawn jacket potato and a scone. This time I had a handful of prawns in a hard potato and a tiny tub of clotted cream.... More

We had a lovely high tea at the garden centre. Sandwhiches, cream tea, miniature cakes and coffee. The service was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. A nice treat!

The only place that makes a Sunday lunch better than me or my mum. They don't skimp on portions, have the freshest ingredients. Top marks to the chef. Really lovely staff in the restaurant who always have a smile on their face.

We were always regular visitors, at least 2 to 3 times a week, but since the restaurant has changed management we rarely go. However we went for coffee and tea cake today (Sunday). At our visit at 10.45 the place was deserted so I selected a table which had been cleared but unfortunately had not been wiped to remove dribbles... More
