Cant complain

This little place was really busy with the eat-out side of the business - and it seemed that the same staff were dealing with seated customers as well as the take-aways resulting in quite a wait to place our order. One poor lady was running around seemingly doing the majority of the work herself... read more

We had a lovely meal in here and staff were very friendly. The waiter was always cleaning the tables straight away and disinfecting which was great to see especially as it was such a hot day with insects about. My husband and I had fish and chips which were lovely and my kids had burger and chips which they enjoyed.... More

Located at the start of the Pier, this is obviously in a great location - not far from the town centre, and in just the right place for any tourists/passers by. Honestly, the decor wasn't much to my tastes. It was a bit lacking in terms of decoration - needed a bit of a happier atmosphere, which could have been... More

Had Sausage chips and beans for about 6 quid, same as what you would pay at most places like this. So no prob value wise. Served quickly and food tasty. Don't know what some others are on about with poor reviews, maybe they just had a bad day ! Would return here to eat if in area again.

Popped in on 9th September. We perished the menu and opted for a baguette with ham and salad and a chicken salad. My wife went to order from the counter and was told there were no baguettes, only baps, and there was no chicken for the chicken salad. We walked out. Avoid at all costs.

Just when you think you cannot walk any further and just want to sit and unwind and watch the world go by while you do absolutely nothing, visit the pier cafe.

Had the most beautiful time in Devon, until we had lunch at the Pier cafe, made a huge mistake by having a hot lunch, there sandwiches they could not destroy but believe me, I had cottage pie chips and peas, it was like nothing have ever tasted, chips tasted like the chip fat had never been changed, the peas well...
