Description: Brixham's harbour-side restaurant offers Trinidadian Verna's native Caribbean cuisine alongside great local ribs & home-made steak burgers, local seafood and fun desserts. Carnival favourites Goat Curry, Saltfish & Ackee and Jerk Chicken take pride of place among a number of home-grown recipes - Trinidad Chicken & King Prawn Curry, Pineapple Pork, Legendary Lamb Shank and local Scallop & Ling Curry. Jerk Pork Skewers, Seafood Tart and San Fernando Spicy Prawns appear amongst the starters along with Patties, Gurnard Goujons, Home-made Samosas and Scallops & Hogs. We use local fish in a number of seafood dishes including Fish Bites and a number of curries. Vegetarians are offered Pumpkin Patties and Goat Cheese Samosas among the starters, followed by Sweet Potato & Black Bean Curry, Chilli sin Carne and even Jamaican Jerk Tofu among the Vegan options. A good part of the menu is Gluten-free as indicated in the online menu. Home-made Banana Cake, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Banoffee Pie, Morgan-spiced Rum Panacotta are complemented by Ice Cream, Sorbets, Pineapple Sundae and our own Rum Baba. For children, there are home-made Chicken Nuggets, Spaghetti Bolognese and more Ice Cream. Pepper Shack is fully licensed until midnight with Red Stripe, Sol, Peroni, local Dartmoor ales, Healey's Cornish Ciders, wines from around the world and a wide range of rums among the spirits. We also offer an extensive Cocktail Menu and even Ice Cream Liqueur Cocktails

I'm proud to say that we get pretty good ratings from our younger guests ... whether for the ribs, home-made chicken nuggets or the curries themselves.

Glad you all enjoyed it ... thanks for coming along.

The food was gorgeous, spicy but not overpowering. The owner came out to have a chat with us, a very lovely lady.

I booked for a party of 9 as a special first night treat on our holiday. The food was excellent and the staff coped exceptionally well with a full restaurant. We briefly met Verna, who is lovely and an excellent chef. Great atmosphere with a variety of dishes that most of us had never tried before.

That's a nice compliment ... coming to us as a first night treat ... thank you.

We've certainly been stretched a little staff-wise ... but just about got through. We try to keep a small team ... but a minor series of the 'unexpected' did catch us out!!

A family run Caribbean restaurant that is small but authentic. The range of food was great but the quality lacked slightly. A tasty selection but for the price lacked that bit of spark. The staff were great however and the location perfect.

Haha .. I guess we'll settle for that ... there's quite a bit of solid praise in there!

We're not going to pop everyone's cork ... but we've got a pretty good record. We don't go for anything gourmet ... just Verna's honest Trinidadian home-cooking (with a little added from Jamaica) with a good blend of spices.

Thanks for coming along.

We were both keen to try Caribbean food, so this was an ideal opportunity and we were certainly not disappointed!
From the cocktails onward, everything was fab - as was the music and even the shirts on the walls telling us that Verna is a proud Rugby mama!
You must try - you must go! There are options to suit everyone and all washed down with Caribbean hospitality and music. Can thoroughly recommend!

Once again ... thanks very much ... it's very satisfying when people 'get it' ... essentially it's us, haha.

Happy we didn't let you down.
