We went to Jack Sprats last year about Oct 2015. Family of 4, with 2 Boys aged 6 & 8.
We enjoyed the dinner very much. The portions were very good. I would say that the food was very good value for money. Laura was fantastic. Laura allowed the boys to make espresso coffee which thay enjoyed very much!!
We shall definitaly be back again!

Other reviews have raved but we were extremely disappointed with our toasties. One slice of supermarket white bread with cheese and tomato put under the grill. The other side of the bread was not even cooked. £4.50.
If they had run out of bread we would have chosen something else, or they could have reduced the price. Neither option was offered. Left feeling ripped off.

I am so sorry to hear you were disappointed in your toasties and apologise sincerely,
we were not able to use our usual bread that day ,which comes from our local bakery as being a bank holiday weekend . I take on board the feedback and appreciate you taking the time to review us and again apologise sincerely.

There were seven of us, celebrating a 12-year old's birthday. I would advise booking well in advance - we were given the Lavender Room. The menu is varied, and for all ages (we were grandparents, parents and children 17,14,12). Everyone enjoyed the delicious fresh-cooked food and the friendly efficient service. Previously, we have been with friends (4 adults), and the informal bistro-style ambience is really relaxing. A refreshing asset to the Dawlish eating-out scene.

We booked for a birthday meal for 4 on a Saturday eve. Lovely atmosphere- not too noisy! great service, good choice on the menu- we had seafood platter (lots of it!), chorizo + chicken taglitelle (yummy!), uncle Buck's burger and pizza. Drinks ok- only 1 lager available which surprised us! Prices are reasonable- average £11-£15 per main course. Puds- lovely choice, would recommend Gluten Free brownie with toffee fudge ice cream!! Lemon tart lovely too! nice + sharp! no rush, chilled place! can't wait to go again! check out their website for current menu!

This is an intimate little place in the centre of Dawlish. It has character and the service is very good. The food is well cooked and there is a fine choice available.
We have been before and we will be back!
