Popped in on a miserable Brixham day. Had a lovely coffee and delicious flapjack. Went through to the shop and bought some bits and pieces all at half price!

Staff told us it was suitable for children, the 3 areas where the projected stories were told were very dark and the children did not enjoy the experience. The experience was overpriced for what it was and we didn't really enjoy it and couldn't wait...More

Visited twice now. The second was much improved due to modernisation of the pirate show. Great cafe / restaurant, yum food and very reasonable. Friendly owner and staff. Gift shop can be pricey, but nice souvenirs.
