On three separate visits in the last few months, we've really enjoyed the experience at the Vineyard; great food, prepared in sight, using an outdoor oven for much of the preparation hot food. Even in the occasional spot of inclement weather in Devon, there is...More

Perhaps it was our timing? 2pm probably was a little late for Sunday lunch but the disappointment stems from the poor response to the problems we experienced. Firstly we were told there were no mussels so I changed my order. Also the boullabaise would not...More

I love this little cafe/restaurant. Only open in the late spring and summer. It's a lovely walk from Totnes, which takes about an hour or so, and is the perfect venue for a sunny summers day. There are big umbrellas and blankets provided for more...More

This place is well off the beaten track, but so worth a visit. It is hard to believe that the chef is able to be so creative in what is hardly more than a little caravan. The drive to Sharpham is simply beautiful, take a...More

We booked late for a Saturday lunch and shared the giant wooden table. The food (Mussels, Duck, Crab) was excellent - simple, fresh, and expertly cooked. The ambience was relaxed, with dogs, fresh air & chat, with service efficient but friendly. The location is perfect...More

There's a style about this place, the people, the wine, the food that you either like or you don't... al fresco dining isn't to everyone's liking. There's a certain rough and ready nature to the experience which we like but can quite understand others may...More

Shared a cheese platter here along with a bottle of the Sharpham red. Not much cheese and service OK, but otherwise enjoyable.
