Originally from Essex and with over 25 years of collective experience in catering, they decided to move to the beautiful town of Dawlish to fulfil their ambition of running their own restaurant. Front of House is where you'll normally find Arthur and Sue offering warm welcomes and friendly service and behind the scenes in the kitchen is where you'll find Gilly, preparing and cooking meals fresh to order.

Family of 5 had lunch. The fish and chips were dreadful. We were expecting a nice piece of fresh/fried fisn and it was a breaded fillet from a box out the freezer! They didn't have bottled water and had ran out of fruit shoots which is annoying when they are yards away from a super market.

The jacket potato was good, as was the childrens cottage pie and roast. It was a bit dark and they could do with a bit of background music to add some atmosphere.

I had a great full English breakfast here about two weeks ago. It was terrific, eggs cooked just right which is unusual, you mostly get them over cooked or "yuk" not cooked on top at all. The staff were pleasant and there was no rush to finish. The only and I mean only drawback was the smell of stale tobacco in the background. Although no one smoking, clearly there is smoking going on somewhere near. Still, not enough to put me off going in for another nice breakfast.

We have just returned from another excellent evening at The Witches Bowl in Dawlish. It is one of our favourite places to eat, because the warm reception and delicious food guarantee you a good night out. The service is outstanding, and we now look forward to the company of the kind hosts as much as indulging ourselves with their fantastic menu - 3 courses each! We highly recommend this restaurant for an excellent meal at an extremely reasonable price.

Needed a place for lunch in Dawlish. Found the Witched Bowl on Tripadvisor and gave it a go,

Basic cod and chips and a glass of Chardonnay, was really very nice. Clearly all home made from scratch (except the wine).

The lady who served us was very nice, attentive and friendly and polite.

Also very inexpensive

Hugely recommended
