Nice couple of hours!

Well worth a visit with children! They have a good space to run around,animals and play area. We didn't eat here but staff were friendly and have a sheltered patio if rains.

we saw the sign for Larkstone after enjoying the sites of Verity, saw the bouncy castle in the distance which swayed the children, however the children said the bouncy castle was 'yucky' and deflated. (£2 each for endless bouncing) the meal was nice, ploughman and meat equivalent, pasta bake for the kids. Hubby thought it was overpriced for what we... More

Great little accidental find after we had been swimming! Great views, decent food and friendly service. Loads for kids to do, animals, tennis, bowls, bouncy castle, climbing frame and Jenga. Sit back order your food (cream tea) and relax while the kids amuse themselves. Also had free wifi, which is great as Devon is a data black hole!

Received a friendly welcoming service. Excellent food. Blankets available for sitting outdoors. For a service second to none with amazing views would highly recommend. Will definitely visit again very soon.

Last weekend I held a family party at Larkstone Cafe and it was brilliant! Having booked with the previous owners I was dubious it would all go well but Laura and Christian coud not have done more for me and my demands! It has been completely redecorated inside and is lovely. We held our party outside in the marquee which... More

Totally dependent on good weather but when its nice outside you will struggle to beat the view here at sunset. The food is good and whilst there isnt an extensive range of beers etc, this is more than just a place for a beer. Give it a go !

We went to order our food and the staff were talking about their personal and private life. (what they were doing at the weekend.) I found this totally unacceptable as I was waiting to order food and drinks and I had to listen to this before I was served.
