When it comes to favourite subjects for Cottages In South Devon, I have to confess that it’s always easiest to write about restaurants in South Devon. For me eating out has always been the best part of my South Devon holiday and over the years I’ve been to dozens of restaurants in South Devon for work and pleasure. So…ahem… without further ado here are a few of my recommendations across the region:
Buckfastleigh, TQ11 0JU, 01803 762074
Breaks the mould of normal restaurant cooking with an informal dining experience, wonderful vegetable dishes and outstanding puddings. Book well in advance. Read my post for the Cottages In South Devon blog here.
Blackpool Sands, TQ6 0RG, 01803 770209
Various organic, local type things -scones, baps, pasties, pies etc but the main choice for us is the Venus Organic Burger. Read more about Venus Cafe and Blackpool Sands here.
South Milton Sands, TQ7 3JY, 01548 561144
Run by the same people as The White House in Chillington and The Art House in Plymouth, this is one of the best beach cafés in South Devon with grilled fish and fishfinger club sandwiches as the highlight. Food is easy going (burgers, breakfasts, mussels and chips) but cooked well using local ingredients. Get in quick or be prepared to wait for tables inside – there’s only room for 30 or so people and it fills up quickly – or get a takeaway and eat it on the beach.
