This is a good pop in location. Food is ok limited menu and rather expensive. Outside seating is small but very cute. Also nice for a coffee to go as u walk.

Sat outside looking over the beach - what could be nicer. It's a little basic inside, but the staff friendly and the menu looked OK. A pleasant experience.

We always go to the Old Mill when we go to Wembury or Churchwood Valley, and it is a fabulous place. The location is perfect. and the people who run it are really nice. We were worried when the people who sued to run it retired, but the new people have kept the feel of the place and respected the heritage that they have taken over. Great food and superb location

Hi there, great to have your support. We work very hard to try and keep a good standard of food and drinks. We are sisters and joint managers and the whole family pretty much helps out in the background too! We are very much hands on within the business from making cake and soup to accountants, paperwork and sweeping the floor.
It means a great deal to us to hear your lovely comments. Many Thanks .

Expect to pay over the odds for decaff tea. Price of normal tea is £1.25, but a whopping £1.65 for decaff. When I complained about the additional 40p I was told to go and get a drink elsewhere. Charming!!

The Beach Cafe is handy for Wembury beacg and walkers on the coastal path. But they seem to be part-timers. I've twice turned up well before their advertised closing time to be told that the kitchen was closed and that all that was available from their limited menu was drinks and cakes, I can't imagine how a coast path walker might feel if he or she was counting on getting a meal to see him on his way.
