Main restaurant closed until mid-May, but in the meantime drinks and snacks available from shed. Handy pit-stop for coastal walkers. About an hour out from Salcombe. Stunning views nearby.

Unfortunately we found out it has been closed for refurbishment since January at the end of a 12 mile walk. The children weren’t best pleased. We had hoped to have lunch here.

On any normal day we'd visit this place by walking from East Portlemouth ferry. However, today was an exception mainly because the weather was pretty foul, so instead we drove around the estuary and arrived by road. Anyone who has visited Gara Rock will know...More
