Sharpham Vineyard

The Vineyard Café at Sharpham Vineyard, Ashprinton is 2 miles away. The Good Food Guide Editors' Award winner for Best Alfresco Restaurant 2012 “With every climatic eventuality covered, Vineyard Café is an object lesson in how to deal with the vagaries of the British climate. The Good Food Guide team are not the only ones who wish it were open for longer during the year, for we never cease to be amazed at how Rosie Weston is able to produce such incredible food from such a small space. A genuine hidden gem”

The Start Bay Inn at Torcross ( lovely drive via Dartmouth) does very good inexpensive Fish and Chips.. There is lots of History to this part of Devon During the war 6 villages were evacuated and the Americans practised for the D Day landings on Slapton Sands. There is a book on this at the cottage and its worth looking at the tank and reading about it.

Start Bay Inn
The Cricket Inn

The Cricket Inn is a little further along the coast at Beesands. It is a little more upmarket than The Start Bay Inn. Delicious sea food pancakes

There are some lovely coastal walk from here to Start Bay Lighthouse

If you like seafood another interesting trip is to the Oyster Shack. Directions are written on the back of the flyer. You must book first 01548 810876. It’s not such a shack these days but very good. If you take the tidal road you need to check the tides first.

The Seahorse

The Seahorse at Dartmouth is about 5 miles away.
