Description: Brixham's harbour-side restaurant offers Trinidadian Verna's native Caribbean cuisine alongside great local ribs & home-made steak burgers, local seafood and fun desserts. Carnival favourites Goat Curry, Saltfish & Ackee and Jerk Chicken take pride of place among a number of home-grown recipes - Trinidad Chicken & King Prawn Curry, Pineapple Pork, Legendary Lamb Shank and local Scallop & Ling Curry. Jerk Pork Skewers, Seafood Tart and San Fernando Spicy Prawns appear amongst the starters along with Patties, Gurnard Goujons, Home-made Samosas and Scallops & Hogs. We use local fish in a number of seafood dishes including Fish Bites and a number of curries. Vegetarians are offered Pumpkin Patties and Goat Cheese Samosas among the starters, followed by Sweet Potato & Black Bean Curry, Chilli sin Carne and even Jamaican Jerk Tofu among the Vegan options. A good part of the menu is Gluten-free as indicated in the online menu.

My partner and I ate here last week. Nothing but good things to say about the place.

The young waitress who served us was friendly and attentive.

The starters (spicy prawns & monkfish) were generous portions and delicious.

The same can be said of the mains (goat curry & jerk chicken).

Finished off with a banoffee pie. Yum!

The place was full when we arrived, so I advise booking as we did. This didn't affect the quality of the service though.

Verna takes the time to come out of the kitchen to see that everyone is enjoying their food, which is a nice and friendly touch.

There is so much choice, we will be back again very soon.

Thanks very much!

Happily, we've stayed busy at weekends right through January and into February. To be honest, there is the occasional delay but who wants to rush through the meal anyway? When it does happen, we try to make sure that we let you know - never nice to be wondering if you've been forgotten!

See you again.

My partner and I came here on a wet, windswept night to find a full restaurant- unusual for Brixham in January. Mostly seemed like local, return visitors.

Recommend the carib lager, good wine selection also. Struggled to decide what to have as literally everything sounded beaut!

My Monkfish starter was amazing- one of the best things I have ever eaten, partners spicy prawns were also v good. Jerk chicken was tasty tasty and partner raved about the famous goat curry (inlaws also rate it highly). Banoffee pie to finish, mmmm.

Plus Verner herself went round each table to say hello after the meal, a lovely lady!

Fantastic value, great service, best location, buzzing atmosphere and top food! Go here soon!

Thanks for battling the elements! It has been hugely encouraging to discover how many people come to see us on a miserable night. Once inside, the weather goes away, haha!

Getting hold of the Carib lager was one of the bigger challenges,so it's nice to see it going down well.

Hope to see you again soon.

Our daughter invited us to the Pepper Shack as a post Christmas surprise.
Great welcome, very very friendly, the food was outstanding, good size portions and extremely tasty. As it was a quiet evening there was a limited menu, however the Spicy prawns starter and a superb variety of main courses including Jerk Chicken was wonderful.
So good we are taking friends there this weekend, try it yourselves will love it.

Thanks for your endorsement and to Livvy for the invitation. It has been very important for us to get things right for Brixham.

Word-of-mouth and brilliant regular local support has been a big part of getting the right atmosphere and helped hugely in keeping us busy through the more difficult Winter months.

Keep it coming!!

What a brilliant night. We had emailed The Peppershack as they were fully booked for New Year's Eve asking if they had a cancellation could they let us know. We received a prompt reply saying that they could fit us in but it may be lively affair as there were a couple of large parties in.

The food was buffet style and excellent. Plenty of it. It was nice to have the opportunity to have a taster of the menu for when we return again which we will definitely do. Nothing was too much trouble and the waitress attentive.

Well worth a visit..

It was our first New Year, so we were rather finding our way. Happily, everything went down very well - helped in huge part by the high spirits of our guests ... so thanks to you and all who came along.
