We went to this lovely cafe for lunch recently and it was faultless. There were 13 of us so three tables were pushed together and puppy was made welcome too. A variety of food was ordered - 4 children 1 teenager & 8 adults were all served without incident and with minimum fuss. The dishes were all excellent and the... More

Always drop in here on our walk into Salcombe from Bolberry for a well deserved drink. We have been lucky that it always seems to be sunny, so sit in the garden overlooking the sea , lovely. Not a huge choice of drinks but what they have is good. It has always been extremely busy whenever we have been .......,... More

The restaurant is accessible but no disabled WC. The outside area was up steps but I'm... More

This is quite a unique venue. For such a place the food is excellent. The menu offers the obvious but you can have a very veried selection. We had both lunch and a dinner event there with friends and children. They have the most quirky dress up box so all can be entertained in all ways.

Walked over from Hope Cove. Had the Garlic shrimps, nice enough fayre, but a bit on the pricey side for what you get. That said, food was tasty and a good range of choice.

Popped into Winking Prawn for an early lunch on Sunday. The location is stunning, with lots of space inside and out. Friendly staff too. However, it is overpriced for what you get. I understand some of the costs may be due to the stunning location. I had a brie bacon and fig chutney baguette. Baguette was pretty bog standard. Brie... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your visit. Sorry to hear it wasn't as you had hoped. We do try our best to accommodate food intolerances, and we do offer vegetarian options on the menu, however, we're always keen to improve our service where we can, so will pass on your thoughts about vegan options...
