What a lovely little place. great range of cakes served with a smile. We did not stay for too long but both enjoyed our freshly prepared coffee. We will certainly be back.

Ashburton is really known for its many restaurants, two cooking schools and for those looking to buy excellent interior furnishings/furniture. It's well worth a visit if you're in this area of Dartmoor.

We stumbled across Francolin, as it's not on the 'main hike'. We're delighted to have done so as the two soups we ordered were packed with flavour, the ciabatta was steaming hot and the tap water was served beautifully chilled.

This is a smaller eatery that cares for what it does and is well worth a visit if you're looking for a light lunch or for tea/coffee and cake.

Ashburton is relatively small to wander around so don't be misguided by my 'off the main hike' description and the car park is really well priced at £1 for three hours.

A gem of a find in Ashburton. A great range of soups, we had Thai carrot with a generous basket of fresh warm breads. If you like unusual tea flavours and cake this is also a place for you.

We found Francolin's whilst out with our family and we thought it did a great coffee, hot chocolate and pot of tea! There were four of us and each of us had sausage roll for lunch but with us all having a different variety. They were delicious and well presented. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the owners made us and the baby very welcome. Would certainly visit again,
