This little tea room is a quaint and quickly cafe with plenty to look at inside. The scones were fresh, warm and moist and we're delicious. The only disappointment is that my clotted cream was lumpy and quite watery although my mothers and fathers were fine. We ended up sharing each other's. Other than that it was a lovely cream... More

The café is located at the rear of the deli and seats 24 on 6 tables. The walls are lined with shelves containing goodies - preserves, chutneys, biscuits etc. also numerous old fashioned food adverts... More

Came upon this restaurant when walking round the back doubles of Sidmouth . Lovely road witn at least 4 cafes so they have some competition. This one is special as they have some interesting things on the menu.

I visited the Dairy Shop with my mum after spotting it in such a lovely location. When we walked in, straight away we loved the continental ambience with 'just right' background music. My mum had a cappuccino which is loved and my hot chocolate was devine! Service from the moment was outstanding, in no way pushy or rushed as we... More

Having tried all the other tea rooms and cafes in sidmouth I finally found a place I will always return to. The staff are very polite and efficient and the warm scones with cream & jam are to die for, this is definitely my favourite place to relax whenever I'm in the south west

We visited the shop one wet afternoon and were warmly welcomed by the staff. The hot chocolate and cappuccino we had were lovely and the scone light and fluffy.

We return to The Dairy Shop whenever we visit East Devon, with a warm welcome from the staff and owners alike. We had a dairymans and meat platter, both well presented and delicious, would highly recommend a visit and always have a mocha!

After viewing places in Sidmouth, I chose the second-placed "The Dairy" to meet a friend for morning coffee and cake. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was welcoming and very comfortable. The coffee delicious and the maple pecans scrumptious. An added touch was the jug of water and two glasses given on our arrival which was much appreciated while we... More
