This place is in a great position in the centre of Dartmouth, it looks nice from the outside but that is about as good as it gets! We wondered why no one was in the place when the rest of Dartmouth was buzzing but we gave it the benefit of the doubt and went in. On entering we asked the... More

It's places like No. 8 that make you feel you ought to check Tripadvisor before eating out; then again, if we'd known to avoid this place we wouldn't have had the comedic experience of eating here. It looked so tempting from outside, and the menu seemed ok. Unfortunately the only decent thing about No. 8 was their tea. The poor... More

It's in a nice location, the member of staff was friendly enough. Seating can be quite cramped. Food was ok, for a bit of lunch. The toilets were very cramped and not as clean as you would expect. We went in because it was quiet (everywhere else was busy). It wouldn't be my first choice, however I wouldn't rule it... More

Midday lunch and I'm told the chef hasn't arrived yet. Does that mean the fresh jacket potatoes would have been microwaved.. Tables were sticky and chairs looked like they're from an old people home. Stained and faded! Up your game guys

I recently visited for lunch, we had a nice welcome but the chicken in my panini looked like leftovers and the salad looked like it had been prepared first thing in the morning and left out all say as it looked sad and wilting. No. 8 has the potential to be a nice cafe if only the food they served... More

We came to eat here after having a walk around Dartmouth and what a disappointment it was. Came for a lift bite and it was definitely light! Ordered 2 wraps. Both could only be described as hollow, came with a side salad that consisted of some wrinkly old cherry tomatoes and lettuce leaves that were more brown than green. It's... More

Looked good from the outside for a pleasant cafe for lunch, but possibly the worst food we've ever been served. I'd have been better off throwing £20 away! We ordered a pitta and wrap with side salads, expecting plenty of fresh filling and great quality... What we ended up with was a flat wrap with barely any filling, a dry... More

Little cafe dinner with outside seating which catches the sun around mid day. Good for people watching whilst you enjoy your coffee. Nice lunch selection too.

We passed this whilst walking round the town, saw the menu and 20% discount for eating early. To be honest it was that that pulled us in. We were second couple eating there when we entered (it rose to 4 by the time we left) but we went in. The ambiance felt more cafe than bistro. I ordered the ribs... More

You will like the sound of the menu, we did walking by. Triple cooked chips seem all the thing right now and they're yummy but no.8 yours are frozen fried once....we're sure of it. The beef ribs....tasty but served cold...Yuck! We weren't charged for those at least. The food came out quicker than a McDonald's! Obviously all reheated......or not in... More
