We've used this cafe several times over the years - always a good backup. Unfortunately, the owner has decided to close the nursery, cafe, and shop after seven years. It's a shame - but good luck to her and her future.

Had a homity pie and salad and herbal tea which was delicious. Cakes looked delicious too. Sat outside amongst the trees looking over the Dart and the steam train went passed in the valley. Such a beautiful tranquil setting with flowers, birds and a view...More

Really tasty and original light lunches. Not just the usual old vegetarian fayre. The menu is blissfully free of pasta with tomato basil sauce or any form of goats cheese tartlet! It's a small menu which I believe changes fortnightly. The cakes are really good...More

Called in for lunch. Vegetarian choices only. Small and large portions. I was happy with my dish but my partner ordered flat bread with salad and dip which was disappointing at £6.75 for such a plain, small dish. Staff were helpful though there was rather...More

Stopped here in the middle of walk for coffee and cake. Really unusual cakes and a lovely setting. Didn't have time to look around the nursery. The railway station at Staverton is worth a look especially when the steam train arrives. Will return

Looking over the River Dart in South Devon, in a deeply wooded valley, Staverton Bridge Nursery is a wonderfully tranquil spot. It’s a great spot for relaxing, sipping organic coffee/leaf tea & eating freshly cooked food. Here we make all our dishes from scratch.We also have a nursery full of plants, herbs, vegetables & seasonal colour.
