Awesome location - obviously can be VERY busy in summer. Nice quality food but they used to have more choice. Very few vegan / gluten free options, though some veggie ones. Staff are generally helpful though sometimes rushed off their feet. Would def recommend this....More

Friendly staff and good food either from the take away kiosk or from the cafe itself. The ice cream is to die for and the cake aren’t too shabby either

We walked from Slapton Sands along the Devon Coast Path to Blackpool Sands, and believe me when I tell you we needed refreshments when we arrived. After a fabulous, and rather exhausting walk, we chose a picnic table outside, in the sun, overlooking the beach....More

The charges change throughout the season. Up to £7 for the day last year however the price reduced during the day. If using Venus for an evening meal then arriving late is free.
