Great meal, atmosphere, and a fuss was made of the kids, which was nice! We walked from Dawlish Warren so this place was a God send.

Many thanks for taking the time to review such a super review for us. We are so pleased you enjoyed your meals. We love having children at the cafe so we are really pleased they enjoyed it and felt welcome. It is a great walk from Dawlish Warren to Dawlish but certainly helps to build up an appetite. We are delighted you decided to stop and refuel with us. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

After a lovely meal at Jack Sprats with 8 friends, I then booked it again for an after show Company meal. On the second occasion there were 26 of us, all arriving after 10.30pm! The staff coped brilliantly and had worked out a great system for people to order their own drinks and then pay for them individually at the end of the evening. The food was marvellous and we were very raucous but the staff took it all in their stride and indeed seemed to enjoy our cross toasting. The food is great and the prawn curry I had on my first visit was one of the best I've had. I can highly recommend this restaurant. If you find yourself in Dawlish give it a try, even if it's only for a coffee or lunch.

Thanks so much for your fantastic review. We really loved having your theatre group at the restaurant. It was a great fun evening for us. We hope to see you all next time you are performing in the area. Thanks again.

No holiday to Dawlish is complete without a visit to Jack Sprats. We try to go each time we visit (several times a year) and invariably always order the chicken milanese! The tables in the window might be a bit squashed but they are perfect for nosing outside at the lawns. Would (and have) recommended to family and friends who visit. Already looking forward to the next visit!

I took a friend to Jacks for a birthday lunch, it was quite busy and we were unsure where to sit, we unwisely chose a cramped wobbly table by the window. However things improved from then on, being quite nosey we observed a table close by enjoying a platter of seafood with salad and rustic bread. We ordered the same and WOW!!! a simple but tasty lunch, a lovely choice of fish nibbles with a simple dressed salad. It tasted as good as it looked, we will be back and we won't be waiting for an occasion to return. Well done!

Hello. Thanks for your great review. Big apologies for the wobbly table. The front section has an uneven tiled floor and unless the tables are in exactly the right place, they do wobble. We should have noticed and put it right for you. I know it sounds odd but I always check for wobbles at the start of the day but I guess they must have been moved on this shift. I am so pleased that you and your friend enjoyed her birthday lunch. Lovely to hear that you enjoyed the Seafood platter so much. Please do come back soon. Do book a table if you can and ask for one that is not in the window! Thanks again for the super review.

Good to see that a new restaurant has opened since my last visit. Small and very popular, so you must book, but do try if you can. Great and plentiful dishes with daily specials - everything from burgers to local fish, chicken dishes and platters to share. Friendly staff - can wait to go again!

We are really lucky to have a great team of people working for us and thanks for being great customers.
