The merchandise sold here is made by the top craftspeople in the county and covers all crafts: woodwork, pottery, glass, textiles, painting etc. Definitely worth a look. There are equivalent guilds in many other counties.

Spent a lovely time looking at the various crafts displayed, all beautiful. They’re for sale but it’s like going round an art gallery. All made by craftsmen so worth the money, but more than I can afford - a pity! Cafe has a very good...More

A good place to come and keep warm and chat over coffee and a good snack. Enjoyed a toasted sandwich which was well done and side salad interesting but perhaps too much when just wanted a sandwich. Great shop and gallery below with lovely craft...More

Some really nice art and crafts on display, all available to buy, but I found the prices rather too high. Well worth visiting for a window shop though.

Always worth popping into here when down in this part of the world. Some great craftsmanship. Wood, jewellery, ceramics and books. Just nice to be here and enjoy.

We love it here. The food is home made and it has to be the best soup and home made scone in Devon. Lovely waiting staff. The exhibition currently running is not out taste at all however art is subjective and so should be taken...More

Very interesting gallery, a wide range of locally made arts and crafts of a very high standard which is often reflected in a higher price ... then the old adage rings true ... "you only get what you pay for" ;-) and you are after...More

I had quite high expectations of this place but it didn’t grip me. Interesting locally made craft items for sale at very high prices. Apparently the restaurant is excellent but we didn’t try. Could have been a redeeming feature. Others may find it more interesting...More
