Dukes is right on the front at Sidmouth, with exterior and interior seating, as well as rooms. The staff are all bright, cheerful and know their jobs, nothing is too much trouble. The same goes for the kitchen, the food will not disappoint, so pop in and give it a try o look online at their website.

And the breakfast was fabulous, an unexpected gem. Totally changed from a visit 3 years ago. We shall return. Love their interest in seasonality and local...

We go here every couple of weeks for tea and scones and the scones are always beautifully made, supplied with lots of butter :). Staff are always friendly and you get a loyalty card to get stamped every time you go. Lovely outdoor area, great in the summer. Would recommend.
