“Fine for a cream tea! ”

The Grange Restaurant
Ranked #12 of 24 Restaurants in Buckfastleigh
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 4, 2018 via mobile

I would probably call the grange a cafe more than a restaurant. The food is served buffet style (a bit like school dinners)
However, the cream tea was lovely and it’s location is incredible. Fab place for a light lunch on a hot day! Staff are friendly.

This is a place where you can get a roast lunch for £7 or £8. It makes coach parties happy but it’s not for discerning diners. It is slightly up market canteen food. The place is clean and comfortable. It’s a good place for families in need of fodder.

Loved our visit a few years ago but the other day our lunch was just plain bad. Young grandson's fishfingers were oily and poor quality, daughter's salad was limp and tasteless, my ham and eggs (so looking froward to this) tasted of compressed ham and slippery, oily eggs. Pity. And we had to pay 10p for a sachet of sauce and even had to queue up to get glasses of water from the coffee counter. And the staff were clearly having a bad day. The chips were OK which prevents me giving a 1 star.

The restaurant is part of the Abbey and we went for a Christmas visit.Decided to stop in at the restaurant and have a mulled wine, the staff were not busy but the girl serving us didn't know if the wine was made or ready?..went and asked came back to say no mulled cider but they did have some mulled wine at 2.95 a glass we thought it would be a nice Christmas warmer,so ordered two glasses. It was served in small wine glasses,125 ml, but was less than 125ml looked about 90ml (I am a personal licence holder and have worked and run bars and restaurants for a longtime ) I did go back and ask the manager if we were short measured to which he replied no thats what you get???? Pretty disgusting for the price definitely wont go back. Avoid unless you enjoy being served by incompetent staff that are just ripping you off ,no christmas spirit whatsoever!!
