I will always remember my first visit to Cranks. A whole new world of food choice opened up to me! I’ll always remember that day. There’s huge competition in the vegetarian market now so Cranks is not the unique place it was 30 years ago when a vegetarian could never enjoy eating out. Back in the day, vegetarian choice was...

Cranks is a lovely Restaurant situated at Dartington glass complex. Ideal for coffee and scones or teacakes or a lunch. Have been going there for years and never disappointed. Delightful well mannered staff too.

Love going to Cranks,the range of interesting vegetarian meals is fabulous, both hot and cold dishes served with colourful salads. Tempting deserts and a vast choice of drinks. All in a pleasant cafe or outside if weather is kind. As I said we don't go often enough maybe twice a year but the food and service never fail and the... More

We often come here for lunch, and the (vegetarian) food is always excellent: soup and cheese scone, or salad with quiche etc. Staff are friendly, and there is a good atmosphere.

I'm not a vegetarian but I don't mind eating vegetarian meals - in fact, if someone else makes them it's more enjoyable! Last time I was in Cranks, many years ago, the salads seemed to me to consist of mounds of grated carrot and little else. So I was pleasantly to make a return visit for a mid-week lunch. The...

This is a lovely busy restaurant with healthy well prepared food and friendly staff, however, the service set up is in need of updating in my honest opinion. There were two members of staff behind the counter at a busy meal time who were expected to take your order, serve up the prepared food( heating in a microwave where necessary... More

Crank's cheese scones are the best. If you have one, ask them to slightly warm it and then ask for an extra pat of butter - really tasty. The coffee varies a bit - sometimes good and sometimes not great. The staff are friendly and the service is usually pretty good.
