A charming cafe set in woodland aside Berry Pomery Castle. Good coffee and other drinks, fresh sandwiches and soups, cakes and tray-bakes. Locally sourced products. Our coffee is roasted just a few miles away and is an organic blend. We use organic milk and offer soya milk too. We light the wood burner often and right through the winter. Gluten free scones and brownies available.

Just as a cafe should be

Had to kill a bit of time while family went round the castle, as we had the dogs with us...I only had a coffee as I had eaten a late lunch, but intend to go back as the food looked delicious. The manager couldn't have been more welcoming/friendly. Loved it.

Eaten here a few times in the past and was very pleased to find that the new owners are so pleasant and welcoming. The food was delicious and I look forward to visiting many more times in the future.

What a fabulous end to a great trip to the castle..the castle trip was amazing and.worth every penny but without the Devon cream tea with genuine friendly service and the definite home made warm scones with excellent tea and a veranda view in a wooded sheltered sunny pitch the day wouldn't be complete... It's a sad day if you miss... More

We visited Totnes for the day and found this gem of a place for lunch. The food was delicious, we had lovely homemade soup, authentic galettes (a french savoury filled pancake) and great coffee! The staff are very welcoming and friendly. It's well worth a visit!

Best Americanos we had during our stay in England. The cafe is so cute. We warmed up near the fireplace, listening to Leonard Cohen and admiring the view of Berry Pomeroy Castle from the window. The owners were very friendly. We should have stayed for lunch-- the soups smelled amazing!

What a perfect setting this is. Looking out over the ruins of this beautiful castle this little café has recently changed management and it shows. A warm greeting on arrival and a lovely selection of food and drink to choose from made by the very talented French chef working there makes this a place you really want to return to.... More

We saw the cafe after our visit to Berry Pomeroy Castle. You really need to stop here and have a coffee and lunch. We chose the soup of the day, and a sausage sandwich along with coffee. The sandwiches are freshly made, generously sized, and really well presented. The soup was delicious and the coffee was good too. This was... More

First visit to this lovely little cafe for a while. It's in a beautiful setting in the woods with the castle as an amazing backdrop. There's new people running it and I think it's a big improvement. I had a delicious cappuccino and a good chat with Alan the new owner, lovely guy who has just taken over. Great coffee,... More

We often go out on a Sunday morning to give the grandson some exercise and something a little different. Today he was thrilled to see Berry Pomeroy Castle through the car window. While paying to get in the English Heritage ‘venue’ we saw the castle Café and debated whether we would pop in for grub after our castle attack. Well,... More
