its a nice little shop, but a little pricey and the baguette I had was quite hard, it cut the top of my mouth! not a great choice if you are vegetarian for fillings.

Popped in for a quick bite and ended up getting a small quiche and a couple of mini pasties. All of which were exceptional. A very good choice of different flavoured quiches and the oasties were great. A really nice feel within the shop, great service and good food.

We grabbed pasties and quiches - both veggie and traditional- for our daily walks on Dartmoor. Lovely food and people! Thank you!

Great Deli - if you are about to embark on a walk on the moors get your picnic here. Freshly prepared goodies for all tastes. If you have rented a holiday cottage you must treat yourself to delicious charcuterie, cheeses, breads & lots more.

Having previously sampled a ready meal from Blacks back in the summer we decided to pre-order several ready meals for our Autumn holiday at a Bovey Castle lodge. We had Beef Bourguignon, Chicken and Choritzo casserole, a Greek Pork Stew and Beef Chilli. Not only were these meals delicious containing quality meat, they were delivered with a smile to our...

This great little delicatessen in the town square has anything you could possibly want from such a shop. It far exceeds the quality and range you get in similar shops in far larger towns and cities. Their range of pies, cakes and sandwiches is superb and they have so much more to offer.

Following on from a recommendation in our visitors' book, we took home a couple of pre-prepared frozen meals to enjoy back at the holiday cottage. And what a good idea that was too: we enjoyed restaurant-quality food without having to go back out again in the car for a couple of evenings during our stay. The lady who served me... More

Blacks has a couple of tables, but what we used it for was to take home some food to our B&B. We took the steak pasty (twice), quiche, chicken and bacon pie, and some salads. All were very tasty.

Went in to buy local cheeses , they had a few but not a great range, place was busy which is always a good sign. Lots of different condiments, olives, oils vinegars etc. the Devon blue we had that night for tea was very nice .

When I went to Blacks to buy a quiche, the shop assistant simply picked one up from a display on the top of the counter with her bare hands. I was rather dismayed! I know most people wouldn't care and that I am fussy about hygiene around food but I didn't want the quiche she had touched knowing that she... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. In our 10 years of trading we are known for taking our food hygiene very seriously, and we pride ourselves on customer care. We do at present hold a 2 star rating for one reason. The wash basin in the shop (a legal requirement) became blocked the day before our... More
