Went for cream tea one afternoon. Our reception was indifferent, and felt reminiscent of London to some degree. None of the warmth we've experienced almost everywhere else in Devon.

Had dinner at the Sun Bay Hotel Restaurant on Friday night. The food was cooked fresh and tasted lovely, the portions were generous. Too full to have desert I chose a festive hot chocolate later (Amaretto) which was very indulgent.

On recommendation from friends we stopped here for cream tea and weren't disappointed! Firstly, the location is stunning. Whether you sit inside or outside on the terrace you have a view over the sea. The decor is a peculiar mixture of old and new. There are several different seating areas inside - modern open coffee area, some smaller more traditionally... More
