5 STARS to The Chattery for not only being one of the very very few places to serve breakfast in Sidmouth at their outside tables, but also for serving it on actual china plates and with metal cutlery! Waves of nostalgia came crashing in! Lovely...More

Sunday morning 11:35. They don’t serve breakfast after 11:30! They don’t serve hot food from the other menu until noon!! So what time is brunch?? Can’t understand the logic. Went to Duke Inn and had fabulous all day breakfast or was it brunch ?

Just called in for a snack my partner had a cheese and onion toastie and there was plenty of filling and it was very tasty. The young lads serving were very friendly and polite
