The Fountain Head
A 14th century pub in Branscombe which serves traditional award winning real ales from the Branscombe Vale Brewery and good home cooking that wont break the bank. I can recommend the fish and chips in beer batter.

The Fountain has an open log fire, slate flags on the floor, there are no juke boxes, pool tables or wide screen televisions. Just a good country pub.


The Masons Arms, a thatched pub and dining rooms also in Branscombe, has just been given a stylish makeover, completed in February 2013.  It still retains an old world feel with its open fire place and flagstone floors.

The stonewalled bar has been there since 1350, when masons from the local quarry would stop to ease their dusty throats. The bar top still has a brass slot where thirsty horsemen would (allegedly) ride up to the counter to drop in a penny to have a pint of cider pulled.

The Blue Ball


The Blue Ball is a ten minute drive down the hill situated in the picturesque village of Sidford, with a history dating back to 1385, the building is a very attractive thatch over cob and flint.

They serve barbeques in the garden in summer and fine food in the bar all year round.

A good carvery and fresh home made options are on the menu.

The Pea Green Boat


A recent addition to Sidmouth seafront, a cafe overlooking the sea.


It is bijou and you have to be quick to get a seat in summer, but if you do it is a perfect place to enjoy watching the world go by with a coffee, glass of wine, pizza or fish platter.


For a treat head to the Salty Monk, this 2 AA Rosette restaurant has a small cosy dining room, which was once an old forge, with its own log fire. Here you can enjoy a lunch or dinner and cream teas. It's best to reserve a table in advance if you want to eat here but many people take pot luck and eat at a table in the bar.
