We pre booked and pre ordered a cracked crab and lobster a few days ago. We arrived and were greeted by friendly helpful staff. We had a lovely seat overlooking the beach next to large open windows and doors so we felt that we were sitting outside. The food arrived quickly, was very fresh and tasty. Chicken livers to start,... More

The food is very good quality, freshly cooked and delicious. The setting on Blackpool Sands is quite the most beautiful. Great to go the the cafe in the wildest of weathers, watching the sea outside as you sit in the shelter eating gorgeous grub. Even more fun in the winter when it's stormy and they've got the super log fire... More

We were spending a day on Blackpool sands and visited this cafe for lunch. There is a good selection on the menu both fish and meat dishes. I had the crab salad with a bowl of the biggest potato wedges I have ever seen. It was all delicious and all with a view of the lovely beach. The prices were... More

We walked down to Blackpool Sands from Stoke Fleming, knowing that there was a beach cafe there. When we went in for some lunch, we were amazed at the variety and quality of the food (and drinks) on offer. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes ranging from from Aberdeen Angus steaks and jumbo prawns to really good homemade... More

We visiting this evening and had a lovely family meal - 2 adults and 2 children. We were seated by the window with full view of the beautiful beach (unfortunately it was raining otherwise we would have eaten outside!). Food was tasty and the staff helpful & friendly. It's nice to find a restaurant that serves from 5pm to accommodate... More

On previous trips to this area of Devon we have always had to bypass Blackpool Sands because of the strict No Dogs policy. This time we left the dog behind and stopped for lunch. There is normally a fee for parking (it is a privately owned bay), but this is waived if you are only going to the cafe. The... More
