Presentation of all the food is terribly mediocre and there was a feeling of melancholy the moment I walked Through the door. The only real vegetable here was the manager.

Who doesn't love pasty pies, meat and potatoes and heavy filling pub food? But a traveling body can only take so much before needing to be nourished with living, raw and lightly dressed food. Cranks was such a breath of fresh air to me. I returned several times to enjoy the large salad plate with crunchy raw goodness! The fresh... More

My husband, toddler and I visited this restaurant twice in one week, not only was it a good spot on our way back to Dartmouth after days out, but the coffee and cake is delicious. On both occasions tea and cheese scone, and coffee and iced carrot cake were delicious, they were tasty and felt like you were eating healthy... More

Oh yum! .. Popped in on the way home from a meeting in Totnes, for a cuppa and cake with colleagues before we went our seperate ways... I left my friend to choose the cake .. What a fab choice she made .. A many layered coffee cake and so moist and flavoursome ... Plenty for 2 forks! A proper... More

Visited Cranks yesterday with friends for lunch. I was really disappointed. The service was very good, sadly the jacket potatoes we had were less than warm. The pat of butter did not melt all! The salad was the best thing on the plate. I know they can do better.

There was a distinct lack of staff and consequently service was almost non-existant despite the efforts of the staff who were actually there. The choice of food was very limited and looked tired.I doubted that the latte had even been near any coffee. In addition everything was over priced. The whole experience was disappointing. I doubt if I will be... More

Having enjoyed a fabulous veggie lunch at Cranks some 20 years ago, we were really looking forward to a repeat performance when we were once again in the area for a family wedding. We called in at 12.30 pm on a Saturday when they should have been fired up ready for the lunch-time trade only to find that only the... More

As a veteran vegetarian I am aware of Cranks and we routinely cook from the Cranks cookbooks. Needless to say our expectations were running high. At first we were disappointed by the cafeteria which lay before us. Nevertheless we forged on because we came for the food. Though fresh, the food lacked taste and my favorite Homity pie fell flat.... More

I used to eat in the Cranks restaurant in Tottenham Court Rd many years ago. Nice to see the essential quality of the place... More
