This is an excellent place to stop whilst travelling to and from the west country on the A303. Don't get me wrong, it's not a luxury restaurant but the foods great and portions good. Tasty stuff and reasonably priced in a nicely laid out cabin....More

Stopped at Cartgate Services a few times now Useful pit stop for doggies + their owners as well, all good facilities, plus food and drinks, good parking with good walking trials for the dogs as well. No fuel available but close by.

The food was ok but the woman who served us who's name is Angela was rude and unhelpful. Although they had soya milk, they were unable to make hot chocolate with it, so a waste of time having it.

We always stop here on the to and back from our visits to Dartmoor and Exmoor. Opening early and closing late with reasonable prices for good food coupled with loads of parking and toilets it a handy stop.

My wife and I have been stopping at Cartgate a dozen times a year since the burger van first set up. It has always provided good value and, as staff have changed, understandably, the standard has varied. However, recent changes for the better have taken...More

Travelling from Berkshire to Cornwall with our dog, we stopped here for a break. Not our first visit and lived up to expectations. Plenty of space for our dog to stretch her legs. The cafe is comfortable but basic .. All cooked fresh to order.....More
