We have the very best mince pies available now.    Devon bronze turkey baps and an amazing Vegan tagine dish washed down with a hot mulled wine.   Heaven on the beach! 

Our new winter menu includes some innovative new products made in the Venus kitchens.   An unique 100% King prawn katsu burger made with king prawns, ginger and spring onion comes with a Katsu curry sauce.   We love it!   

We have a fantastic range of seafood dishes, toasties and soups to accompany our fabulous grass fed Devon burgers.      Have a look at the menu - click on the tab on the right.   Fully licensed.
