Lunch and teas served here, good parking, easy to find, also just off public footpath, so walkers and dogs are welcome here. Lovely cosy restaurant, with pretty garden and valley views. Roddy is well known for his beautiful baking, especially his scones, sponges and tasty soups. Log burning stove, books to read and write!! Different types of teas a speciality.... More

Nice bright place, BUT ... Everything individually priced so a 'cream tea' is more than 50% more expensive than nearly anywhere I've been. Yes, the scone was warm and there was a generous helping of cream and jam, but no more than the rest - tried it, won't return

From the road this establishment does not look much at all but step inside and be greeted by welcoming friendly staff, fresh and clean decor and a beautiful garden to the rear. We were only popping in for a coffee but on viewing the menu opted for a cheese scone, ham & cheese roll and poached eggs on toast. We... More

Lovely, fresh ham salad for me, delightful home made bread for the mature cheese and ham roll for him! We both enjoyed our lunch at the Old Black Dog yesterday. We have already recommended it to family members and friends will hear about it soon. It is clean and bright and a welcoming place to visit - no fuss just... More

After a trek from Lyme we decided to go in here for a cuppa. Our dog was welcomed inside (we had been prepared to sit in the garden with him). Looking at the menu we decided to have a cream tea. I can honestly say the scone was the best one I have ever tasted and very generous in size!... More

We stopped at the Black Dog in Uplyme for a cuppa and cake. We have been before so we knew we were in for a treat. The sun was shining so we sat in the lovely gardens. If you like a good cup of tea and really excellent food with friendly service in beautiful surroundings, this is the place for... More

This has to be one of the best places in the region for a cream tea and lunch. Scones are to die for and owners always give a friendly welcome. One of the best tea rooms I have ever been too, we will certainly go back again before we go home.

Stopped on a whim - (local pubs all closed by 15.00 on a Saturday). Free parking. Lovely garden and superb food followed by tea and cake. Owners were very friendly and welcomed the dog too. A very enjoyable couple of hours. Would definitely visit again.

Having arrived in the area to find the B&B we had booked to stay in had gone out of business we were really lucky to find The Old Black Dog could accommodate us at such short notice. The owners were very welcoming. The room we stayed in was at the back of the property and was very comfortable and quiet.... More
