Been here several times for breakfast and lunch. Staff are friendly and polite. The orders come out promptly. The menu has plenty of choice and the food is reliably good. Certainly the perfect 'pop in' venue.

This was our second visit. Last November we were passing trade and were greatly impressed. Today we made a 'beeline' for The Chattery and decided to try their breakfasts. My wife had the vegetarian option and I had the 'Chattery Breakfast'. Both were excellent as was the service. The gentleman who I assumed was the owner served us and nothing... More

Excellent service with a smile! Lovely tea this afternoon, friendly service and a delicious scone. Nothing too much trouble and even invited us inside even though we had the dog with us 😀 Will visit for tea sometime soon....

Popped to the chattery as friends had suggested this lovely little place. The food was beautiful. I had fish of the day it was absolutely stunning. The staff as a whole were very friendly. One of the waitresses (the older one, I would say) couldn't do enough for us. Very attentive and bubbly. We were asked on arrival if we... More

Stumbled across this little gem on Friday by accident. The first thing to impress was the friendliness of the staff. Couldn't fault them. The second thing was the superbly prepared, and home cooked, food. Lastly the price was incredibly low for such quality. I think a lot of overpriced restaurants could learn a lot from these girls and their business.... More

This was our fourth visit to the Chattery and we enjoyed our meals even more than previously. Rather than light lunches as before,on this occasion we both chose the pie of the day which was Steak and Ale. Absolutely delicious. Tony's service was as good as ever and the young lady who served us was equelly as polite and attentive.This... More

A mid sized cafe/restaurant away from the seafront at Sidmouth. Welcoming and warm, the menu is comprehensive without being fussy or trying to do too much. The service is just outstanding, friendly with a bit of light hearted banter thrown in. We visited for a late afternoon tea on a Saturday and then went back for a breakfast the following... More

The team at the Chattery produced a very good home cooked meal and the service was first class. The team noticed we had 2 small children and offered the boaster seat straight away and then came back with pencils and paper as they could see the children were restless. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be going back... More
