No trip to Sidmouth is complete without a visit here. Walk around the cliff and up the steps and arrive in the always sunny garden. I remember when this was a derelict folly and it is now the best place for light eats in Sidmouth. Really well done.

eaten there a few times now and they never fail to impress,busy ladies hustle and bustle in and out the kitchen serving hungry walkers in probably the best place for views of Sidmouth.the cakes are amazing,like a normal cake but 3 times the size-the custard tart we had was the best i've tasted(after being a chef for 28 years) everything which came past us looked great and i could quite easily stay there all day eating!

What a great place to stop for lunch or afternoon tea!
Helpful staff and enormous portions.
Recommend sharing baguettes and cake slices - just ask for an extra plate!
Get there early for a lunchtime table.
DELICIOUS!

High on the cliffs at the edge of Sidmouth with great views out to sea or seating in a walled garden. Good breakfasts and lunches with daily specials, massive cakes but their whole meal bread on previous visits was much better than the current coloured granary offerin. Friendly obliging service.
