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.

    We were very disappointed with the attitude of the very young staff. Even the lady that sat us down who is there regularly was very blunt and to the point.

    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.

    There seemed to be quite a few staff, but the restaurant was rather chaotic in terms of service. We waited a while for service, but staff did not always seem engaged elsewhere. My companion requested a cheese scone to replace the bread with her soup, but the server said they would need to check with the supervisor. The soup was not very hot when it arrived. I appreciate servers do a difficult job, but our experience yesterday was in stark contrast to previous visits.

    The food was great but it took a long time to order and then the food took ages to arrive especially as we had two children in our party. Our table was booked at 1.15pm and we didn't eat until 2.55pm. Then when the food did arrive, it didn't come all together and the children's meal were last to arrive.

    Met a friend for supper. Greendale have just changed the menu and there are some new dishes available. I had the short rib with mash and veg, it was delicious. The monkfish dish my friend had too looked and tasted great. Definitely recommend the place, ambience, ease of booking, staff and food

    Ordered fish and chips- fish great chips awful lukewarm and limp. One of us on table ordered rhubarb and custard cake. It came and she said didn’t taste much like it. On leaving noticed that we had been given Rosie’s Battenberg cake.

    We eat at Greendale all the time but never for Sunday lunch. Do yourselves a favour. The Sunday roast is fantastic and has a great portion size and good value.

    Had not been to Greendale for some time. Visited with my partner, son, his partner and 4 month old baby. We were putting the outside part with plenty of room for the pram which was lovely. Was a bit of a breeze coming in as we were at the end with the exit. Having a patio heater near us helped a bit. We had to ask for another pint of Coca Cola as the glass was really dirty this was replaced very quickly with an apology. When we ordered food we were told there were no baguettes for a steak one but the bread used instead was nice. The chips that came with the 2 burgers ordered were a bit shrivelled looking like they’d been left around for a while but the burgers were delicious. I had the anti pasti platter which was lovely and again had bread rather than baguette but was ok. Could have been more of the dried meat. Overall though a really good lunch and would definately return.

    Had steak, very nice with 20% off. Only criticism was the service. Staff not observant of guests at all. Once we had our food served to us there was no interest in checking we had finished or asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. We literally had to jump up and down to get any attention. There were plenty of staff on and not too busy so it should have been better. Good food, staff service very poor, such a shame.

    The restaurant is absolutely excellent and great value for money. Generous portions, good choices, very fresh, nicely served and of the very best quality at a reasonable price. Staff attentive and professional. The shop stocks an amazing variety of products, far more than usually available at such places, and the prices are very reasonable in comparison to other farm shops in the area.

    Although the food was good and value for money, however I think that the drinks menus need updating as they advertise certain drinks which are no longer available and have drinks which are not on the menu.

    Great reasonable food in an extremely busy place. Bustling and busy but welcoming and relaxed. The food was good, we had the framers breakfast, a barn and poached eggs. All arrived at the same time and were great. Our waiter was super friendly but other waiting staff didn’t look happy! That aside it was great

    Service very slow indeed on this occasion. Plenty of staff, but they spent most of their time talking together in a group. The place was notably quiet for a Friday evening, despite every table we could see bearing a Reserved sign. Fish & chips was good, but not outstanding. My brownie was not warmed, which was a bit disappointing.
