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’.

    Breakfast was served tepid. Overcharged as original order incorrectly taken even though waitress repeated our order on completion, lovely, polite girl though. We have eaten at Greendale numerous times before and gave good reviews. I hope this was just a blip however serving breakfast tepid was unacceptable. Could not get anyones attention to return it so ate the breakfast but brought it to the cashiers attention on payment. Wood recommend Greendale but not for breakfast

    This is a very busy popular place so be sure to book! Food didn't take too long and was freshly cooked and tasty. The music was a bit loud and we had to talk loudly across the nice large tables. Everything was fine. Just one hiccup ..We asked for extra coffees and had to wait over 30 mins but appreciate it was busy. Friendly staff!

    Although we were slightly early for our reservation this caused no problems. We were seated quickly and shortly after our waitress appeared to take our order. This was carried out very efficiently. Coffee as brightly quickly followed by our breakfast. We had a further coffee and cake. Portions were of a good size. The only thing I would point out was that although we were due to only have two slices of toast between us, it would have been better to put one slice on each separate side plate. We were sisters so we didn’t mind sharing the plate or dividing the three butters. Had this been a business meeting, it might have been a bit awkward. The menu did lack vegan options.

    The toast is a disappointment now, a few years ago it was crusty thicker slices and tasted delicious. Now it crisp as cooked in batches and kept warm ? and boring. Lizzie a waitress is amazing, that young lady works so hard. She never stops, she quiet and diligent. We’ve noticed her hard work on the many times we have been to the Cafe. She doesn’t stand around chatting, she’s always working. 👏🏻👏🏻

    My Wife and I had the Fish and Chip meal, which we have enjoyed in the past. I was not aware they there was an option to cold chips. Our chips were far from “freshly prepared” and were more like a warmed up versio of the previous evening.

    The food, drinks and view were excellent. The service was not very attentive - the drinks sat on the bar for quite a while whilst the bar/restaurant staff chatted amongst themselves. Overall a good experience.

    The restaurant and food are pleasant indoors and out, but yesterday 11 May 2022 three of us had lunch and were unpleasantly cold (table 7). A cold current of air passed over us the whole time. A reasonably cool atmosphere is acceptable for covid reasons, but we felt too cold to order pudding or coffee and were relieved to leave, where, even though it was a wet day, we were warmer outdoors than in the restaurant. Such a pity.

    The music was a little loud ( we sat ‘outside’ ). Our table was a little too close to a family sat to the left of my wife. Otherwise - good food and helpful staff.

    Waited quite a while for order to be taken so had to go to counter , drink came ands was incorrect . Food good but noted that the price is higher and the portion size considerably less. Used t visit at least once a week sometimes more but to be honest I tend to do quirky and comfortable not commercial which is the path its gone down. Quite sad really but I guess it's all about the buck now.

    Visited Greendale for a cooked breakfast… Asked if I could swop toast for fried bread, the waitress Tami said she’d ask. If not we said white toast would be fine. Tami didn’t come back tk state either was possible, then No white toast as delivered. When breakfast arrived it was not hot enough, only Luke warm! Went to pay the bill and wax left standing gif a while in front of Tamj whilst she finished chatting to her colleague at the till. Hence, too busy to serve me with acceptable customer service! Therefore, we won’t be visiting again for food in the restaurant. This wax our first experience and will definitely be our last. Then Travelled to Darts Farm for a more professional service. I don’t normally complain, but unless people give constructive feedback you’d service won’t improve for other users! Thank you.

    Our food came out before our drinks (tap water, 1 coke and a milkshake) which is pretty unacceptable. Seemed quite disorganized even though it was past peak lunchtime, very very slow service.
