Living locally we were very much looking forward to taking our family to the School House on their visit this half term. Although we are regular visitors to Mothecombe Beach, surely one of the best in England, we had never managed to try the cafe...More

Very disappointing. Over priced, dirty, rusty, chipped, getting it very wrong. Should be lovely as in one of the most beautiful places but why London prices in Devon? Will not be coming back in a hurry unless things change.

Brought a group of 11 cyclists for lunch. Pre booked but service very slow. Crab off. Mackerel Off. Avocado and bacon off because it was after breakfast time. Hate to think what it would be like if busy.

A local for us since bringing up the family in Holbeton, and a nearly unbeatable location, but to be charged £8+ for a very small breakfast with the promised sourdough replaced by a slice of white bread was disappointing, no reduction offered either even though...More

We stumbled across this place on a walk down to the beach. Despite it being grey and windy outside the Schoolhouse was bustling with families and walkers sitting outside and in. We went for two of the sandwiches- the crab sandwich and the mackerel, bacon...More

Lovely rustic shack style seafood cafe/restaurant above Mothecombe beach. We had a coffee after our lunchtime walk on the beach then had a table booked for dinner in the eve. Started with a Salcombe G&T with a slice of grapefruit.....very refreshing. Mainly seafood on the...More
