The Dairy Maid recently changed hands and is now far better than before. Better décor and menu. Having returned there on several occasions recently for breakfast, mid-morning breaks I was very satisfied. Later we will try the Sunday Lunch and one of the special Italian nights.

The first time in Teignmouth, and we came across this lovely restaurant. It looked very welcoming, and it was. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We chose from the special board "Seabass with prawns and cherry tomatoes in white wine, it was delicious and so beautifully presented. Followed by Marcos homemade semi freddo. A fantastic range of choices and... More

We just fell upon this little Bistro on a rainy Bank Holiday Monday. The bistro is very clean, (so clean I asked if they'd just opened as a business) and very reasonably priced. The staff are very helpful and friendly. You are not rushed to eat your meal and get out as a lot of restaurants/cafes tend to do to... More

The Dairy Maid was a wonderful surprise, we had a gorgeous evening meal. The seafood pasta was amazing and there are also plenty of vegetarian options (my other half had the risotto which was lovely). Went back a couple of days later for a coffee and a tiramisu, the deserts had looked so lovely but couldn't have managed it after... More

We had heard good reviews from friends about the changes at the Dairy Maid so booked a table for 7 p.m. and the restaurant was quite empty. We ordered a bottle of red wine whilst looking at the menu which the waitress bought and showed the label and asked if this was what we wanted and then "plonked" it on... More

This restaurant has become our favourite in Teignmouth. We have visited many times as a couple and also with family and friends for evening meals. The food is always of a very high standard with plenty of choice and presented beautifully. The service is lovely very efficient but not intrusive. Would highly recommend.

I had visited during the day on several occasions and been very pleased with all aspects of my visit. On one Saturday evening, we hadn't decided what to have for tea so I suggested the dairymaid. My partner wasn't sure as he felt the outside of the building looked just like a cafe. So we went as we were. Boy... More

Despite having lived in Teignmouth for 20+ years, today was my first visit to The Dairymaid. I have never been before as I 'Judged the book by its cover' and wrongly assumed it was geared towards our older citizens. We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the establishment to be greeted by stylish, contemporary decor and welcomed warmly by excellent... More
