We passed through Stoke Gabriel with friends, on our way to Greenway. We were fortunate to be able to get a table at Emma's on a Saturday night and it made our visit to Greenway very relaxed, knowing we would be having a good meal later. The menu had so many terrific choices, the usual menu plus specials made selecting... More

Mini breaks at the lovely 'Badger's Retreat' B&B in Stoke Gabriel are always timed to include at least one visit to Emma's restaurant. Brilliantly cooked food served piping hot and by very personable staff. Thank you also this time to the young waitress who expressed her concern over her coffee making skills when asked for a Macchiato, she made one... More

We spent 2 weeks in Stoke Gabriel last June and were fortunate enough to discover Emmas. We dined there on 3 occasions, including a Sunday lunch to die for. Emmas played a huge part in our decision to return to Stoke Gabriel again in 2017.

A revisit to this restaurant. This time with family who have a passion for sea food and who know good eateries when they see them. We are regular visitors to Stoke Gabriel so know Emma's well but recommending places to dine over a three day weekend takes on a degree of responsibility when choosing for others. With a wide menu...

We went for a Sunday lunch at Emma's and had a enjoyable meal. There is a choice of small or large portion on the roasts. The desserts are also very good. They do not have a licence to sell alcohol but you can go over the road to the pub and bring back a drink for your meal. The staff... More

Once again had a wonderful meal with friends. However, as we were one of the last to leave did find the cleaning up around us a little unsettling especially the use of lemon cleaner on the tables.

This restaurant came highly recommended by the owner of Stoke Gabriels' Lodgings where we were staying for a couple of nights. Having ignored his advice on the first evening, leading to& a disappointing experience at the Castle Inn, this evening meal on our last night more than made up. You would be wise to book ahead as tables are limited... More

Lovely food, freshly prepared so takes quite a while to come to the table. But, we found the service very slow and gave up waiting to order dessert. Shame, because I'm sure it would have been excellent. We'd been seated for nearly 2 hours by the time we decided not to wait any longer. It's nice not to be rushed,... More

Consistency in the restaurant trade is sadly a most elusive beast, however, Emma's has got it well caged and a permanent resident in this little jewel of an eatery. The genuine pride and attention to detail shines through at every level in this restaurant and certainly speaks volumes for the hard work and professionalism of Emma and her team. Well... More
