fabulous fare

Cheese and leek tart with a side of cous cous,bean salad, and red cabbage coleslaw. Washed down with a large glass of apple fizz. All very tasty. Disappointed the red cabbage slaw isn't in the current recipe book on sale. Decor might need a bit of an update but couldn't fault the food or service... read more

Had lunch here yesterday and was happily surprised! I had cauliflower and broccoli cheese with salad, which was really nice. I have been veggie over 30 years and eaten here several times, and this was by the far the best time. The food was tasty and delicious, and no sign of that overly worthy 70's style vegetarianism that I fear... More

Stopped for cheese scones and coffee. Years since I eat at Cranks and the food was up to expectation. Good whole food veggie style. If you can get the recipe book some lovely recipes try.

If you are a vegetarian and love cheese then this is the place for you. If you are a vegan then forget it. Yesterday there were 4 main courses for lunch all covered in cheese. There was just one option for vegans - it looked like goulash. Jacket potato was my only real option. The only cakes available for me... More

As good as ever. Been coming here for over 20 years and yes still one of the best cold veggie meals. Coffee was weak, so that was disappointing. Good crumble but again cold.

Been here many times over the years on our annual trip to Devon. Stopped by and called in for coffee and scones. Absolutely delicious. Plus, our young sales assistant was charming, polite, very chatty and delightful. Thank you Cranks!

My friend worked for Cranks 15 years ago & then it was vibrant & the staff passionate about the food & whole ethos..today it seems that the passion has gone & the staff just not interested . The carrot cake was dry & when we told the waitress she said it was probably because the freezer had dried it out... More

Difficult to put a finger on this one. Went for a coffee & cake after a look around the shops. Very little choice of cakes left late afternoon. Staff seemed to be on a bit of a wind down too. Coffee was OK, service was OK, cake was OK. Sure it used to be better than Ok though. Room a... More

I don't come to Cranks very often and quite frankly I have had a few bad experiences here. Anyway, today we wanted lunch and looked in to see what was on offer. My family liked the look of the food and so we ate here. What a mistake. One of us had vegetable lasagne with salads. She enjoyed the food... More
