What can be better after a lovely walk to the castle than a glass of mulled wine in what must be one of the scenic cafes in Devon. Lovely & definitely what was needed. Glad we arrived early as it got busy and we waited some time for the wine to come and then some time to pay. Wouldn't put... More

One of the nicest views in the locality with nearby pretty church, fort and old castle ruins looking out to see. Boats bobbing in and out of the Dart estuary. Lovely sunny spot to relax and have a drink and/or meal. Have visited many times and the only issue is that the service always seems to be slow, but good... More

Fantastic location and great breakfast set at the mouth of the River Dart by the castle. Small but sweet little eating house, friendly, helpful service with vast selection of home cooked cakes an other good food. Rustic eating area with basic dining but fun. Ordered the big breakfast and not disappointed as photo shows great freshly cooked food at reasonable... More

Maybe the best positioned cafe in Devon if not the entire Southwest. Right by Dartmouth Castle looking out across the Dart Estuary and out to sea. Every craft passing in and out goes past the cafe. The cafe has recently been refurbished coming up to date with a varied menu, and comfortable seating. Outside plenty of tables including a wonderfully... More

Very expensive, not much of an atmosphere although great views. The woman serving was hardly welcoming, she seemed rather miserable. No card payments, remind me what century this is again? Waiting staff are very young and poured coffee on us! Not the best experience after a long walk. As locals we'll make other plans in future.

Really enjoyed lunch, had the goats cheese and bacon salad and it was delicious and a good portion size. The cafe is small and cosy with a great view. The hot chocolate and millionaire shortbread were also both delicious and the cake selection looked so tempting I would have tried all of them! The view is amazing from the cafe... More

After the full tour of Dartmouth Castle and walking up from town, this is an ideal spot to to stop for a coffee and slice of cake. Quite busy even off season, but very efficiently run we were served most promptly. Good coffee and tasty home made cakes. Great!

Only wanted coffee, a simple Americano. Rather overpriced compared to other cafes. After waiting 10 mins for it to arrive at a table outside had to go back in to ask where it was. There were hardly any customers there but they had not cleared the outside tables or wiped them down. The table was still not wiped over when... More

Thanks for your feedback Jenny. It sounds like you caught us having an 'off' moment, I'm so sorry. Although we try our hardest to get it right every time, occasionally we have difficulty with staff illnesses which sometimes leaves us short staffed. It's incredibly difficult when it happens but we have a fantastic team who work as hard as possible... More
