We came across this while walking toward Bridport from Seatown. We were tired and this place was an unexpected discovery. The apple and ginger punch was homemade and amazing. It gave us the energy to carry on. Wish we had known about it in advance...More

Eleven of us cycled here for lunch. Rustic cafe with stunning views from the garden towards Westbay. They were quite busy as it was a lovely day and two of us had a very long wait for food, so long in fact that they decided...More

Visited Downhouse Farm whilst staying in Eype. Walked over the fields. Great English breakfast followed by homemade flap jacks (huge) and breakfast tea. We felt very welcome. Staff really friendly. Dogs positively welcomed. Would have loved to have had more time to sample cream tea....More

I've always loved this place and visited again recently after quite a long break. Still great for tea, scones etc but lunch is now restaurant and not cafe prices.

Really annoyed that directions from Thorncombe Beacon began well then became really poor, we walked probably almost to the farm then the directions were really faint on a chalk board & we got totally lost. Please check your signage from the Coastal path. Waste of...More
