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 café & restaurant. The Greendale Farm Shop Café and Restaurant is much loved by visitors and locals alike. We offer a new extensive menu, created around many of the items sold in our shop and showcasing 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. We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as tea and coffee, 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, including Oscar the Ostrich.

On Sunday and Monday evenings, from 3.30pm, our restaurant serves from our extensive fish and chip menu only.

    Normally have nothing but good things to say about greendale restaurant, but not this time, got seated and an extremely long wait for anyone to come over even just to take our drinks. We then had an even longer wait to have our food order taken, eventually I ordered a med-rare steak baguette, and after a thirty minute wait from ordering to getting my food, the baguette came out nothing less than well done. Extremely disappointed with service and customer satisfaction this time round.

    Really lovely food but think the piece of cod loin i has was very small for the £20 price. The potato the cod sat on was bigger.

    Food great, service great. But…. Outdoor seating is not outdoor. It’s a greenhouse. Booking a table in May really shouldn’t need Perspex all around blocking out any air, and 2 measly fans that don’t do anything. Keep the roofing bit open up the “outdoor area” please!

    Most of the food we ordered was good but my salad I ordered with an omelette was very scarce even though I asked for a bigger one which I was prepared to pay more for plus no dressing and none on the table or any of the tables

    Normally we’ve had very good food at Greendale, but felt the service & food was below average. And overpriced for what we had. I was pretty disappointed.

    We’re a group of friends who regularly meet at Greendale, but unfortunately due to the poor quality of food on the occasion, we’ve decided to try somewhere else for our next meet up. Three of us had jacket potatoes with cheese and beans and one of us had jacket with coronation chicken. When the jackets came out, two out of the three with beans and cheese had coleslaw. We said one of jackets didn't have coleslaw, she repeatedly told us not all the jackets came with coleslaw. What was it pot luck? The cheese was very sparse, all the jackets were barely warm. Very disappointing. Very noisy there too, difficult to chat.

    I had the steak and ale pie. It was very dry. The pastry was brittle and tasteless. The steak inside was actually charred black underneath it. The chips were not fresh....it looked like they had been fried some time ago. The waitress was very good and we were offered a refund or free drinks. However, the service was slow, yet there were plenty of staff who seemed to find time to chat with each other while customers were waiting. It was also hot and humid in the restaurant. Several diners had brought dogs which were panting. And the whole experience was topped off by large numbers of flies coming in to the open dining area. No, we won't be going back any time soon.

    Another lovely visit to Greendales, and this time for their breakfasts, which are delicious. The food is freshly cooked and plenty of it, and the service was great. We had a nice table inside the main restaurant, and found the atmosphere to be really nice and welcoming. I can highly recommend Greendales.

    The food is absolutely excellent, staff helpful and quickly with you when needed. The restaurant is a bit chilly if you are anywhere near the door, and the noise level is awful, everyone seems to shout. But the food is so good, we will continue to come.

    Atmosphere was good and friendly helpful staff The food for most of our party was brought out fairly quickly and it was all very good. Vegan options are very limited and the dish served was vegetarian but items taken off to make it vegan but unfortunately not replaced with anything so bit of a shame, bowl of chips ordered as a side were dreadful…all little pieces of hard edge type potato no actual chips and they weren’t hot. Puddings were good and again came out quickly but two puddings we’d ordered off of the menu weren’t available and one of the custard jug had large chip in it.

    Service and food excellent but one downside to the resteraunt is that the toilets are at the far end of the shop which was very difficult for my 87 year old mum. Disabled toilets need to be much closer to the resteraunt

    Love the fish & Chip evening food is always excellent and wonderful value for money. Staff are very friendly and service is first class,starting from being show to our table drink orders promptly taken followed by food request and next to no waiting for its arrival. The Kitchen restaurant was fully booked. So full credit to the young ladies for their excellent service. There was a slight queue at the counter waiting to pay,but again staff recognised the fact and promptly opened up a second till! We will be back,it’s too good to miss

    We were asked multiple times if we’d like to order food but each time explained we were waiting on our remaining guests to arrive. Then had trouble having anyone take our order. When the staff bought new drinks to the table, we had to ask them to also take the empty mugs away. Food was okay but small portions and not great value for money.

    Staff were attentive when we first arrived and took our drinks and food order promptly. However, after that we were not asked if we wanted desserts and nor were our plates cleared. In fact not one member of staff came back to our table. When we then decided that we would leave as a consequence, we witnessed 6 members of staff chatting just inside the kitchen door. Not good at all. In addition we were overcharged which also needed resolving. The 1 member of staff not chatting and actually working, resolved this quickly.

    Our table was quite close to others so had to keep our voices quite quiet. The service was good. I had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and brown toast, the eggs were bland but I enjoyed it. The music was quite loud. I wish we had sat on the covered outside area. Overall it was good.
