We visit every time we are on holiday in this part of Devon, and having been twice again in the past week, we can only praise the level of service, the attentive staff and the wonderful food, try the dairyman's platter to share, or have a jacket potato with coronation chicken or even a smoked salmon salad you will not...

Visited the Dairy Shop after reading the positive reviews on here and certainly weren't disappointed! We only called in for an afternoon snack, a cappuccino and treacle flapjack for me, and scones and tea for the better half. The food was delicious, the decor and ambience were relaxed and shabby chic with good music playing in the background. A hidden... More
