Deep in the heart of the East Devon countryside, surrounded by acres of farmland, you'll find the award-winning Greendale Farm Shop and it's family-friendly cafe & restaurant. The Greendale Farm Shop Cafe and Restaurant is much loved by visitors and locals alike. The cafe offers a new extensive menu, created around many of the items sold in it's shop and showcasing fresh, local produce from our farm and fishing boats. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are no problem and we have a children's menu for the little ones, too. The farm shop cafe and restaurant provides breakfast, lunch and dinner. It also offers teas and coffees, delicious cakes and Devon cream teas.

Once you've eaten why not take a stroll along our family farm trail. The trails follow a level path that’s just right for pushchairs and little legs where you can say hello to all of the animals, visit Oscar the curious Ostrich and maybe take our vintage tractors for an imaginary ‘test drive’.

    The gluten free options were poor. We were told 10 mins after the order was made that I couldn't have a hun with the burger then another 10 mins later that there were no gluten free burgers left. Poor choices and poor options.

    We had the Sunday roast. The beef was excellent, the roast potatoes & Yorkshire pud were not good - possibly frozen & overall the meal wasn't hot. The mango cheesecake looked delicious but was very disappointing. The coffee was very good. The young staff were very efficient, kind & respectful. Overall a mixed experience.

    We had breakfast as a family to celebrate my husband’s birthday. I booked for 5 adults and a child in a high chair but were given a 4 seater table where 3 of us had to squeeze onto one long seat. When it came to eating we had to borrow a chair so one of us could sit at the end of the table. I would have preferred to have been told that there wasn’t a table available rather than try to fit us in.

    We waited 20 minutes for someone to even take our order, then our food came before our drinks, and even then half our order never turned up. We were never asked if everything was ok, and was also charged twice at the till. Very disappointed, with service.

    Waited over an hour to get two breakfast’s.You can’t mix items from veggie to normal breakfast. You pay £3 more from the smaller breakfast to the bigger sized one which only gives you and extra slice of bacon and an egg. Waiting staff are poor and not very attentive.

    Food was ok but service very poor. No one came to clear the table or to check everything was ok. We wanted coffee and had to go and request these at the counter. Table still uncleared so coffees wouldn’t fit! Very few people in but very loud music as we were sat directly under a speaker

    I booked a table inside…… when we arrived on time we were going to be taken to a table outside, however after explaining I had booked a table inside and there were at least three tables available we were shown to a table inside, eventually we had our order taken and 35 minutes later we had our food which was exceedingly disappointing, we all had fish and chips the cod was over cooked and not very hot and the chips should not of been served ( they looked and tasted as if they had been around for a while) also very few! We have eaten here before mainly breakfast which has been lovely! You were busy but we were very disappointed! Perhaps someone should check the quality of food before it is served to paying customers!

    We had a good lunch, but it was quite noisy inside and also quite chilly so kept our coats on. It would probably have been warmer outside with the heaters on and slightly easier to hear each other.

    I like using the "outdoor" space. It feels safe and as long as it's not a windy day it's warm & sheltered enough to make it an enjoyable experience even in January Food and drinks are reliably good. Staff efficient, plentiful and pleasant. Appreciate having gluten free options.

    This was our second visit to the restaurant and we were equally pleased this time too. the food was excellent and of good proportions. The service was outstanding with every one of the staff, showing signs of caring. This is certainly one of our favourite places to eat now.

    I never thought I would write a bad review. I’m not going to now, even thou My order was wrong. the waitress didn’t know what was included on the burger and no cutlery on the table. The one redeeming thing was the great service by Caitlin ( sorry but I think that was her name). A professional, understanding, first class front line worker. Food is always good and filling and hot

    Service was slow. I noticed others being served quicker. I had the fish and chips. I have had better. The batter on the fish was bland and not crisp. The chips were limp and lacklustre. The staff were polite. Also I have beeb previously, the menu was changed with less of a choice.
