We ducked in here for a light lunch away from the crowds on the other side of Lynmouth. We had the crab sandwich and the ploughman's. It was your basic fare, satisfying but nothing earth shattering. I do wish that they would serve more chips and/or coleslaw with the sandwich and not bother with the salad garnish, as iceberg lettuce... More

We stumbled across this spotlessly clean café just by accident - it is situated just up from the coach car park - stylish modern décor and a warm welcome. Yes, I had a fresh crab baguette, and very nice too, as was my partner's cheese and ham panini, washed down with a lovely big pot of tea ! The toilets... More

I was looking forward to having a Devon Cream Tea,the "homemade" scone was definately not, it was microwaved and quickly went hard. The egg mayo baguette was bland.We were the only 2 people in the restaurant and the waitress forgot one order. Even the dog wouldn't drink the water!

Lovely place to eat and not far from the car park. Very clean and welcoming. Nancy made us very welcome. The crab sandwich was excellent and the meringue and clotted cream was pure Indulgence and worth every single calorie. Thank you Nancy.

Called in for a quick lunch, fresh crab sandwiches seems to be the speciality, so that's what we had, they were very tasty. The interior was tidy and clean and looked a tad more up market than the decor in some other local tea rooms. Service friendly and quick.

Excellent place to take a break in Lynmouth. Great food and service and the crab sandwiches are to die for. It was brilliant that we could take the dog in too.
