The service was friendly, efficient and very speedy but the Pasties were not particularly special, sorry. We expected something really top class from a specialist Pasty shop but were disappointed, maybe we were unlucky or expected too much. Sad to say would not return. Oyr waitress was wonderful and the beverages were good.

This establishment Is well run, that cannot be denied however consistency is key and this is what I feel this place lacks. the giant steak pasty I highly recommend, if it's fully cooked, lots of meat, seasoned beautifully, sturdy pastry all round decent.

We were pleasantly surprised when visiting this cafe in Tavistock. They sold many other things besides pasties - for example soup, jacket potatoes, paninis, sandwiches etc. The service was very good - polite yet friendly and even though it was very busy, tables were cleared and cleaned quickly. Will definitely return when needing another lunch in Tavistock.

They may be just over the border into Devon, but they make a very good pasty! There are a variety of pasty fillings to choose from ... but nothing beats the original!

This is our second visit, but our first eating in. What impressed us last time was the range and quality of the pasties on offer. We were not let down this time including enjoying one of the best Steak and Stilton pasties tasted.
