Cornmill Cafe at Nash Farm Shop, SA72 4SS: The upper floor of this Farm Shop is a cafe offering a good menu including breakfasts (served up to 11am), lunches, drinks and snacks, plus a specials board. The service is prompt and friendly, the food is well cooked and the portions are very generous. If you like, you can go downstairs to the butcher’s counter and choose a piece of meat, which will then be cooked for you. Closed Sundays. Tel: 01646 682445. Last visited: July 2018.
Woodland Café at Hilton Court, SA62 6AE: One of my favourite spots for coffee and cake on a Sunday afternoon, but they also make very good sandwiches. Admittedly, the choice is limited, but the high quality of flavour and presentation is maintained even at the busiest of times. Sit on the verandah and enjoy the view. Closed in the winter months. Tel: 01437 710262. Last visited: July 2018.
Cawdors Tea Rooms at the MENCAP Gardens, SA71 5DJ: Hot meals, sandwiches and a great choice of cakes are served here in the shelter of the walled garden at Stackpole. One of the touches I like is that trivia question cards are left on the cafe’s tables so we can all have some fun trying to answer whilst eating! Closed Christmas and New Year. Tel: 01646 661442. Last visited: August 2018.
Brunel Chandlery & Café, Neyland SA73 1PY: Breakfast, brunch, lunch, coffee, tea, cakes – they’ve got all the bases covered here. We’ve been coming here for years without a glitch. In good weather you can sit at one of the tables on the spacious patio and admire the boats in the Marina. The Brunel is very popular with locals as well as visitors, so it’s busy all year round. Tel: 01646 601667.
These next few have also been highly recommended by us in the past, but we have been busy elsewhere and have not visited them this year. Some places vary their opening hours according to the season so you are advised to check directly.
