A great place to stop for a snack, cake, cuppa if you have had a walk on the Bovey side of Dartmoor, or had a walk at the NT hq at Parke. There are some great walks and views of the river here, and dog walkers are welcome. There is an old orchard, a vegetable garden and a pony sanctuary.
Free and easy parking. The pizza had too much cheese for our taste but everything else was very good. Nice atmosphere and well cooked and presented. A good place to stop when you are in the area and they're open later in the summer. They have a good reputation locally. NB went there is late Jan 2014 and the handy toilet is no longer in the cafe - you have to go down some stone steps outside to the main NT toilets. It was also packed inside on a Sunday early afternoon.
