Tried a newly opened Princetown cafe this Easter, I'm sure you are aware of their re-opening! I have to tell you that although you have a basic approach you are by far the better tasting! In fact, you have still the best scones in Devon!! All hail FTC! I just wish you would extend your premises!

IN the middle of majestic moorland just a stone`s throw from Dartmoor Prison and Museum lies a wonderfully tasty refuelling stop for weary travellers. The Fox Tor Cafe at Princetown is a haven for the hungry and we certainly classified as that having been on the road for several hours. So we parked up on the road leading in to... More

This is a great cafe if you don't want a full meal. They also have a small shop selling many items that will be of use to anyone on Dartmoor who's forgotten an essential or wants a postcard! They also have that modern day essential of Wi-Fi. Whilst I only had snack food (and tea!) on my couple of visits... More

We came here for lunch. It looked pretty ordinary when we walked in but the food was outstanding especially at the price. Very good home made fare, we've had the amazing scones with clotted cream and jam, ham and eggs with excellent quality ham. The cafe is well organised and the servers very helpful. I look forward to visiting again... More

the first trip back here after early teenage days eating beans on toast and gallons of tea. I was pleasantly suprised by the range of tasty food on offer, satisfying everyone from those needing a beer to the vegan of the party. the service was quick and the staff really friendly (despite it being so busy), and the food very...

When you have been out for a walk on Dartmoor, you're cold and wet (and so is your dog), desperate for an all day breakfast and a steaming mug of tea, there can be no better place to end up than the Fox Tor Cafe. The welcome is as warm as the log burner. The food is good value and... More
