The ‘Seabreeze’ cafe at Torcross is very pleasant for coffee etc. Also the Start Inn at Torcross excellent for fish and chips. The Church House Inn at Stokenham good for Sunday lunch.

We enjoyed delicious meals at the local restaurants, The Cove at Hope Cove, The Start Point at Torcross and The Cricket Inn at Beesands were particular favourites.

There is a farm shop on the right on the way to Kingsbridge (Stokeley Farm Shop and Cafe) that is really great. Highly recommended for coffee, breakfast or lunch at their cafe. And a great source of bread and groceries. In Slapton, The Tower inn offers incredible food but slow service. The Queens Arms is really friendly, has a great garden and super service. It offers very good food at reasonable prices.

The Cricketers Inn at Beesands Beach was our favourite place to eat – the fish there was just amazing! Booking might be an idea, although we didn’t and were welcomed inside with our Goldie.

Queen Arms, Tower Inn both in Slapton. The Tradesman Arms in Stokenham: these pubs all dog friendly and great food too.  Also fish and chips on the beach at Torcross.
