Enjoyed an afternoon tea here whilst visiting Dartmouth.

Nice atmosphere and décor and the afternoon tea was lovely and fresh as well as being good value at £5.95 with enough for 2 to share. They did have a large menu of snacks and hot food but we only visited for an afternoon tea.

The staff were friendly and attentive, would return here again if in the area and recommend their afternoon tea :)

Came in for a meal before going to get our bus home. Their was fair choice on menu at reasonable price. Two of us opted for the brunch and I opted for the brunch with out the bacon & eggs. Also had a pot of decaf tea, zup which was not chilled and glass of water. They were very flexible on the menu as not wanting the eggs or bacon plus non chilled zup.
When the meals came the plate was hot and plenty on the plate. The food was hot and very nice. Really enjoys the sausages very tasty.
Only downside was that the door to the cafe was open plus the fan and although was a warm day there was a breeze coming in around the legs. Apart from that lovely place to eat, very clean, friendly staff and very yummy food :)

Hello, thanks for taking the time to post a review. We are always happy to accommodate customer's requests,(unless they are completely ridiculous!!)
it's what helps to make a meal out enjoyable. If you are paying for it, it ought to be how you like it.

There has been a bit of a breeze this week but with the door closed the temperature in the kitchen soon becomes unpleasant and an open door is more welcoming to our customers. Sorry if was a bit chilly, we would have happily closed the door if you had asked.

thanks for the lovely review :-)

Popped in for some breakfast, excellent regular english breakfast & scrambled egg on toast. Service is very good and the price is what you would expect to pay.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
We have been closed since the end of last year, as we do every year. It's always lovely to open the door again in the spring and chat to our lovely customers. Great to receive a glowing review so soon.
Say hello next time you are in so I know who you are!

kind regards.

The six of us popped into Skippers for a cuppa. Just had to say how impressed we were at the friendliness and cleanliness.

We all had a drink, really good price.

Would definitely pop in for a light lunch when in the area again.
