Visit Sidmouth every year with the family, always go to The Dairy Shop for their meat and veg pasties at least 3-4 times (sometimes more!) in the 2 weeks we're down, which we then take onto the beach to enjoy. Absolutely unbeatable, would 100% recommend.

Arrived mid afternoon in Sidmouth and turned away by rude waitress in Mocha nearby. Greeted by hospitable hosts in a nice cafe serving decent good. Can recommend.

We arrived in Sidmouth for a week's holiday tired, stressed and in need of some food and drink. We called in at one cafe (Mocha on the seafront) and were rudely told that food stops being served at 3pm. We tried another one only to read on the menu in the window that lunch service stops at 2.30pm. Hubby and... More

My husband and I stopped here for a bite to eat during our circular walk from Budleigh and our expectations were surpassed in every way. The cafe was clean and welcoming and as soon as we sat down the lovely waitress came over with a jug of water which was much appreciated on a hot day. My husband's smoked salmon... More

Had read that they sold gluten free pasties. They didn't have many types to choose from, but I didn't mind, was so lovely to have a pasty! The pasties are kept frozen and are wrapped individually, so no contamination to worry about which is great. They were so careful, microwaving it in a separate area, which was so considerate. It...

Popped into the dairy for lunch. They have a good range of pasties and other pastries on the menu. We had traditional Devon pasties. Serving them with crisps and a salad is a bit unusual, but they were very nice! Service is good and the decor is pleasant. Also sell a number of local products.

Being vegetarien usually there is a limited choice of options however this spanned from baked potatos, carrot and hummus sandwiches (great combination) salads, pita breads, pies and much more.
