Family meal overlooking the estuary -amazing view. Great welcome. Nice food - great specials. Confusing menu outside specials but food is really good. The fish and chips is great (and huge). Then again, all portions large. Nice wine. Thank you.

Good lunch in a fantastic setting You can retire for a tasty reasonably priced lunch for an hour out of your day on the beach and sit upstairs and look at the sea from a different angle

We came to have a coffee and were tempted by the lovely cakes. Very friendly and efficient service. Excellent coffee and cakes. The café was spotlessly clean and I wish I could have spent the afternoon there! Thanks for such a lovely place.

whenever we spend time in Shaldon we always visit the Clipper - wether the weather is good - sitting outside is lovely or weather poor sitting upstairs looking out is mesmerising - the staff and the food are always excellent
