There are plenty of fantastic places to eat in South Devon! Our New Business Consultant, Natalie has shared with us her top five!

1. The Beach House, South Milton Sands 
Recently voted in the Top 10 Beach Bars in Europe, this is the ultimate pit stop for walkers, beach lovers and locals. Wonderfully situated, overlooking Thurlestone Rock. Beach House offers breath-taking panoramic sea views. The shack is kitted out with sociable bench seating and a fun ambience, the food is amazing and very much known for their ‘Bang Bang Prawns’ and the drinks menu is just as good. This is the place for sundowners! 

2. The Venus Café, Blackpool Sands 

At the Venus Café you can sit gazing out to turquoise clear waters, whether it be for Breakfast or Dinner. The Venus Café is known for serving locally sourced organic produce, from land and sea. Blackpool Sands is a famous ‘Blue Flag’ beach, backed by pines – simply stunning. An overall great place to take the family, whilst sat amongst one of the most famous beaches in Devon. 

3. The Winking Prawn, Salcombe 

Perched on North Sands Beach offering views across to the glistening waters, backed by lush green scenery. The Winking Prawn is a shabby chic, beach hut serving the best breakfast in town, barbeques in the summer and ice-creams from their ice-cream truck. There’s even a dressing up box for the kids (and adults). 

4. Cary Arms, Babbacombe

The setting of Cary Arms is nothing short of spectacular, this gastro style inn, is full of coastal charm and an excellent choice of food and drink. Unwind and relax on the terrace and take in the beautiful view out to sea. Expect superb Devon beef, Lyme Bay lobster and line caught seafood.

5. Rockfish, Brixham

The perfect spot to spy on the fisherman catching your fish supper! A great restaurant to go with the family, overlooking the historic harbour. Rockfish is known for serving fresh, sustainable fish and bottomless chips. Why not visit one their other restaurants, dotted across South Devon.  

So on your next trip to South Devon, make sure to stop by some of my top picks!
