“Loveley Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We have just had a lovely lunch at Ten Green Bottles, it is not open in the evenings, so the above information is incorrect, but what a lovely place to eat during the day. The staff are very friendly and it has a lovely homely atmosphere. We both had a cheese and chutney jacket potato and it came with plenty of lovely salad. The sandwiches also looked gorgeous from what we saw of other peoples. There was also plenty of hot water to add to your strong cup of tea. We live in Dawlish and will happily use this tearoom, which is also a lovely gift shop.

Hi. Thanks for your lovely review. It was really useful that you pointed out our info on Tripadvisor needs to be amended. I am a bit of a technical fool but I am going to have a go at trying to change it right now. Fingers crossed! Thanks for taking the time to review your lunch and particularly, in this case, it may actually help me to get the right marketing message across. We are indeed no longer open in the evenings for food in Ten Green Bottles (except private parties). The same lovely chefs now cook at Jack Sprat's in the evenings so please do try our sister restaurant next door too!

Thanks so much for writing such a lovely review of New Year's Eve at Jack Sprat's. We did try and make it special but any event is only as good as the fabulous guests that attend. Everyone was such good fun and really took part in everything. So glad you enjoyed the food too! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. You have cheered us all up with your kind remarks.

Thanks so much for taking time to review our restaurant. We are so glad you had a great time. We are now trading from our sister restaurant, Jack Sprat's for the winter, and Ten Green Bottles if selling fabulous vintage and quirky gifts. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks for giving us your great feedback, It really helps. Sorry also it has taken us so long to reply to your review. I had posted a reply but it didn't appear. See you soon at Jack Sprat's.

Hi. Thanks for your great review. I am so pleased you enjoyed the food and thought it was good value. As for noisy ladies - what can I say? We very lucky enough to have a lovely bunch of ladies from a Tangent group visit us for on Saturday and Sunday. We love people having a good time at the restaurant. I will have a think about our soft furnishings though - as I know that helps to soften noise levels. Thanks so much for taking the time to review us. It is so important to help our tiny business to grow.

“What a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We visited this restaurant whilst staying in Dawlish on a saturday evening, choosing this restaurant after reading the reviews on trip advisor. We would both highly recommend the restaurant. The restaurant is small and quirky. The food is sensational. Make sure you book in advance.

If we return to Dawlish we will definitely include a visit to Ten Green Bottles (Jack Sprats)
