Situated next to the beautiful historic 14th century tower, this hidden gem is dog-friendly too so it makes for the perfect spot to relax with your four-legged friend at your feet!

Drake Manor Inn, near Yelverton

A short drive from Yelverton, the Drake Manor Inn is a 16th century pub with a lovely wood burning stove to cosy up to in the colder months. On Sunday, tuck into a dish of locally sourced meat accompanied by duck fat roasties and vegetables; for pudding why not try the apple and blackberry crumble with cinnamon custard – yum! Bring your pet pooch along; we’re sure that they’d love to stroll around the Inn’s beautiful garden in the summer.

Lacemakers Café, Honiton

Positioned on Honiton’s High Street is the Lacemakers Café, a quaint, family run spot, built on 400 years of Honiton’s lace-making history. Well known for its tempting Devonshire cream tea, the café also serves a mouth-watering Sunday lunch, why not try the roast lamb alongside a pint of real ale at the weekend?

While away a Sunday afternoon at the unique eatery of On the Rocks in Torquay. Try to grab a table in the beautiful outdoor seating area, where you can soak in scenic views across Devon’s waters while you tuck into a tasty roast dinner.
