Seafood was excellent. Five courses between us and none could be faulted. The service however was virtually non existent. I had to leave the table three times to find a waitress. On two of these I found staff in a huddle passing the time of...More

Sorry for delay, you can also go by car, it's about 15-16 miles drive, find the A379 towards Dawlish. Cockwood is just off the A579 about 30-35 mins total
