Why must we endure what is surely a minority of people who insist on bringing their dogs in to the cafes and restaurants of Tavistock?. Is it me? or is there anybody else who feels Dogs should not be permitted where food is served.

Polite good service. Breakfast of black pudding, baked beans, tomatoes, poached egg, saute potatoes, bacon and sausage. Quality throughout. Toast and marmalade washed down with a pot of tea. Well decorated and lovely looking food on display. Really enjoyable experience.

Popped in for a large coffee and was swayed by the chocolate brownie too. It was served warm with clotted cream, delicious. Loved the cake forks too. Staff sweet. Think the owners should allow well behaved dogs all the time. It's confusing to be allowed...More
