“Drive past the tempting sign - what a dreadful place!!!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Decided to stop for lunch as a result of the tempting sign. After waiting 10 minutes before we were even acknowledged, the girl asked where we were sitting to which we explained that we were following the instructions on the signs that indicate that we had to 'order at the till' to which she replied - 'well I don't think there's anywhere for you to sit' in a 'why are you bothering me' attitude. I said we would sit by the window and asked for 2 'Devon cream teas' but to drink could we have one with tea and one with coffee - one with coffee???? she replied huh!!!!! oh well I suppose that would be ok. We sat down amongst others waiting for their lunch - the people directly in front were arguing since he wanted to walk out due to the length of their wait for food but his wife wanted to give it another 10mins since they had already waited 40 mins; at that point the lady next to us returned to her seat having complained about the length of their wait for a sandwich and a pasty. We discussed our options but the girl at the till had hastily taken our money so we would have had to disturb her to request it back and we had taken enough of her attitude for one day so we waited and eventually the tray arrived. We took delivery of our food and coffee and a tea cup and milk and as ashe walked away asked where the tea was - 'oh you want tea with that?' - luckily we can now laugh about it but a big joke that place is!!!! As we left we commented that the Butcher was doing the crossword and 2 ladies on the till were having a nice chat whilst the cafe was on the brink of a customer revolt.

“Splendid stock and service”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Easy to access from the main road between Torcross and Stokenham, this combined shop and kitchen has been open/closed/reopened over the last few years: we visited twice in a week earlier this year to pick up fresh food, wine, snacks, daily papers, and to use the free wi-fi in the cafe. The first time we went in, it was their first day of re-opening. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and the new owners were keen to get our feedback. Ken Durrant, the ex-Chillington butcher, has moved in there and we bought some lovely steak and sausages. Coffee from the cafe was great. We didn't think the fish looked too fresh, but hopefully they've sorted out the supplies by now.
