Food scene
Fabulous quality fresh fish restaurant in a rustic, fun, family friendly setting (brightly coloured interiors with plastic tablecloths). Not cheap but a wonderful treat for the family. The kids love the sticky toffee pudding and we love the shack mussels!

We always love a trip to Kingsbridge for a spot of breakfast or lunch, a mooch around the shops and to pick up a few supplies from the supermarkets, butcher and fishmongers. The small cinema there is also handy for a rainy day. Petrol station here too. When the tide is out take the very picturesque tidal road from St Ann’s Chapel to Aveton Gifford.

A nice day out if you get the foot ferry over from Plymouth, wander round to the beach or further, stopping for a coffee and cake or ice cream in the Orangery cafe. The pub is also worth a visit, especially for a Sunday roast.
