The Devon Guild building in Bovey Tracey is filled with all sorts of craft products from a wide variety of artists. There is certain to be something that will appeal to every taste. There is an exhibition space which features regularly changing shows of themed work. The restaurant is excellent with a good selection of freshly prepared food and cakes... More

This was our second visit. There is a pleasant cafe upstairs (which we didn't use) but the menu looked nice and the prices reasonable. The craft wares on display and for sale are all locally made and include art, furniture, jewellery, furniture, clothing etc. Some nice pieces and we would recommend a visit.

There is so much to see at the Devon Guild in Bovey Tracey and we found it quite by chance as we parked at the bottom of town. We went back time and again to look at the painting, glass, ceramics, gifts and the wonderful wood turning. Upstairs there is a very good restaurant with an excellent home made, fresh... More

The Mill is a showcase for local artists and craft workers in a wide range of formats and materials. We've been going there for 30 years or so about once or twice a year and sometimes its better than others but always worth a look. The cafe is fine, too.

We have visited the Guild before and enjoyed looking at the beautiful pieces of glass, ceramics, textiles and paintings. As you wander through the art work, up a flight of stairs you find a cafe serving teas/coffee cakes and light lunches. The cheese scone I had with my soup, delicious. A very nice cappuccino followed, and my husband seemed to... More

We happened across this former mill after a Sunday afternoon stroll through the park/woods opposite. The cafe combines size, warmth & tasty food in equal measure. I liked the modern fire arrangement:especially in deep Devonian midwinter. I'm impressed, too, at the range of gluten-free/alternative food (herb scone, Bounty Bar, chocolate brownie) offered to those like me... They cater for breakfast,... More
