Great place for lunch, warm family atmosphere, real log fire plus overhead heaters, needed at this time of the year. Lovely hot tasty soup and granary bread. Good to know too that the ingredients are organic. We had coffee and a read of the papers. What's not to like. Lucky we are locals so can go any time.

Welcome return visit. Plenty of parking, free entry. In the busy season you have to pay to park. The cafe is part of well known Devonian organic cage chain. Can be pricey. Medium coffees are £2.45 which is fair. Busy, plenty of staff on duty. Lovely location, right on the beach. Good clean toilets and souvenir shop on location.

After a great dog walk on Blackpool beach on a sunny morning. A lovely cup of coffee and a seat outside and watch the world go by.

Visited several times before and dropped in a few days ago on a wet, misty, miserable December lunchtime for a basic fish and chip lunch and it's difficult to think how it could have been better. Despite the weather always a lovely beach setting here. Easy parking. Wasn't expecting the huge wood burning open fire place making the large dining... More

Blackpool Sands is a beautiful cove near Dartmouth. It is privately owned and during the summer has a small shop, a hire shop,a great cafe and small charge car park. The whole place is very well-kept and perfect for families. In the summer dogs are banned but in the winter they are allowed as it is very quiet. We took... More

Dear Sir Thank you for your review and for your feedback regarding our policy with dogs in the café area. We have created a dog friendly heated seating area in the Venus beach shop which will be open everyday throughout the winter and we have also decided to allow clean and well behaved dogs into the covered decking area.

Being open all year around makes this a great place to pop in for lunch or tea whenever you are passing whilst on holiday or just a weekend away. A full menu with local fresh produce and beautifully presented, it is a place we intend to spend more time at in the future.

I called in yesterday, with my daughter, for a drink whilst enjoying the beautiful early November weather. As today was much the same my husband and I called in, with our dog, for an early lunch. We had fish and chips which took over 20 mins to arrive, the fish was oily and the chips were cold. They had been... More

Lovely cafe on beech, great choice of menu recommend the crab nice and fresh went well with local cider. Although busy service and staff very good. There is some out side seating over looking the beech. Not to expensive but note there is a £3.00 car park charge but it is well worth it if you plan to spend the... More
