This was quite frankly the worst lunch experience myself and 3 friends have ever had! We arrived on a slightly cool day with 4 toddlers in prams and obviously wanted to sit inside, the first comment said to us was that we couldn't have our prams inside so we all moved our prams to areas not in anyone's way, Only...

Great for the kids but unfortunately the food was not good. Ten of us ate and not 1 of the meals was satisfactory, I had to return mine as it was burnt! Shame as all was good at the start of the season but has sadly gone downhill.

we saw the sign for Larkstone after enjoying the sites of Verity, saw the bouncy castle in the distance which swayed the children, however the children said the bouncy castle was 'yucky' and deflated. (£2 each for endless bouncing) the meal was nice, ploughman and meat equivalent, pasta bake for the kids. Hubby thought it was overpriced for what we... More

Well worth a visit with children! They have a good space to run around,animals and play area. We didn't eat here but staff were friendly and have a sheltered patio if rains.

Great little accidental find after we had been swimming! Great views, decent food and friendly service. Loads for kids to do, animals, tennis, bowls, bouncy castle, climbing frame and Jenga. Sit back order your food (cream tea) and relax while the kids amuse themselves. Also had free wifi, which is great as Devon is a data black hole!

Received a friendly welcoming service. Excellent food. Blankets available for sitting outdoors. For a service second to none with amazing views would highly recommend. Will definitely visit again very soon.

Last weekend I held a family party at Larkstone Cafe and it was brilliant! Having booked with the previous owners I was dubious it would all go well but Laura and Christian coud not have done more for me and my demands! It has been completely redecorated inside and is lovely. We held our party outside in the marquee which... More
