As one of the many people who visit Bigbury-on-Sea I am dismayed the Cafe is no longer there. A victim of big money developers who want to put up huge houses on the site. A loss of a community amenity and essential tourist focal point.

We enjoyed a leisurely lunch on a sunny Wednesday in June and it was perfect. The food was really tasty, the staff friendly and the service efficient. There is plenty of parking and plenty of seating both outside and inside. Shade is limited for dogs...More

Nice outside cafe serving fairly simple food and ice-cream. Prices reasonable and service friendly. Located next to the car park and beach.

We were looking forward to visiting this cafe, as last time we were here it provided good food and service in a lovely setting. Unfortunately the cafe closed in September 2015 and there does not appear any likelihood of it reopening in the near future...More

We visited a few times - one dinner, one sandwich lunch, a cream tea and so on. Service was welcoming, friendly and efficient. Food was good and the view excellent. Pity if you missed it.

Family place with great views over the sea. We just had coffees and ice cream but food smelled great - simple and home cooked. Will be back.

Whilst staying in south Devon we headed to one of our favourite places (Bigbury on Sea) and looking forward to enjoying a super cream tea in one of our favourite cafes with a view. So upset to be told that today was their last day...More
