We drove to Budleigh Salterton today as I have never been there before. Walking back along the sea front to the car we stopped at The Longboat for a hot drink. You can sit outside or indoors. The young girl that served us gave us the impression that she did not want to be there and the young lad working there whipped our cups from under our noses as soon as we had finished the last sip! My husband says his cup of tea was lovely and my Americano coffee was nice too, served in a cup and saucer (not a horrible disposable cup!). I sussed out the menu whilst we were there, average prices, plenty of fish, but being a vegetarian I did not spot anything that I would have chosen.

The food and refreshments served in this beachside business are spot on! The Longboat has been revamped since our last visit, and this has been a success - the serving counter is more accessible , and the 'flow' through the cafe works much better.
The food, as always, is excellent, as is the service from the friendly staff. And the seafront position is second to none!

To sit out next to the beach was ideal.
Fresh cakes and cup of tea served by friendly staff topped it off magnificently.
Recommend this cafe to anyone.
Indoor seating available if weather too cold to sit out.
