Roast beef with strange plates !!!

My partners mother treated me to lunch today at The Chattery. Neither of us had been there before but she had been told that they did a lovely roast. We ordered the roast beef which was on the menu. She ordered a small which was priced at £6.95 and I had a normal which was priced at £7.95. To be... read more

We visited twice for lunch during our stay in Sidmouth. On Sunday they do a roast with exellent portion size and nicely cooked fresh vegetables. For those with a smaller appetite should go for the smaller portion size and save a £1. They repeat this on a Wednesday at a lower cost and also you can get a pudding of... More

Simply the best breakfast in Sidmouth. Unless you are really hungry just go for the Early Starter. Cooked as you want it, bacon sausage eggs hash brown beans mushroom and toms. Not forgetting the toast and tea or coffee. Plus really friendly and welcoming front of house staff, who not only have a great rapport with their regulars, but welcome... More

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
