Living in Totnes, we walk from our place along Bourton Lane to Berry Pomeroy castle a few times a year, I really enjoy the lunches here (especially the specials), the cream teas and the homemade cakes. The only disappointment was the Sunday lunch so we try to go on another day of the week! Then we walk home through Berry... More

You would be hard pressed to find a quieter or more idyllic location than that of the Castle Cafe.A limited but thoughtful menu with attractively-presented, local, seasonal and freshly prepared food. Service is good but you will need to allow plenty of time for your food to arrive when it is busy. Some seats outside. The interior is pleasant, Scandinavian... More

Never had such bad service in my life! It took 25 minutes to bring out 2 charcoled crumpets, rock hard on the outside, not even warm or cooked on the inside, I cannot even believe they had the cheek to bring them to me in that state when i paid near enough £3 for just the two! I know it... More

We visited on a quiet and very hot Friday afternoon. The lady behind the counter was very charming and although they had just closed, was very happy to serve us tea and cakes if we were happy to sit out on the veranda area. One of the biggest pots of tea for 4 I have seen with plenty of hot... More

I always have a wonderful lunch here, it is a special treat for me. Once had a very salty crab dish which made me feel a little sick but just too much fish sauce added. I am surprised at the poor Sunday lunch review, must have been a bad day.I hope they learn from the comments.

6 of us booked for Sunday lunch, but it proved pretty average. £9.50 for roast dinner, restaurant price for cafe food. Meat and roast potatoes presented on plate, but vegetables served in dishes. Meagre portions for 6 diners. No sage and onion stuffing or apple sauce with the roast pork, and no mustard or horseradish with the roast beef. No... More
