Had a lovely walk from Thurlestone via Bantham beach and around over the golf course which is a superb walk. We saw the Gastrobus on Sunday when the car park was packed and the queue for food was huge. As this walk was on Thursday we went to see what all the fuss was about. Very friendly staff and a super range of quality snacks, coffee and cakes.
We had a crispy bacon roll and a bacon and Brie with the trimmings, lovely jubbly.

Planning another visit tomorrow. Business is so good they are having to put another bus on the site. Although not cheap (bet they pay a high rent as a car costs £6 to park) the quality of the food for outdoor catering is amongst the best we have tasted.
Dog friendly as well.

We were at the beach again for the swim event - 'the Bantham Swoosh' and were very pleased to see the Gastrobus again.
Great burgers and sandwiches freshly cooked with lots of choice. Fantastic cake, lemon drizzle, rasp & almond, chocolate, flapjack yum yum. Not cheap but good value....you can't get better on the beach. Well done, see you again !

This is no ordinary catering van in a car park, this is great food served from a gastro bus parked on grass behind sand dunes which lead to a wonderful beach. It is true that the bus is in a car park and it is true that you have to pay to get into the car park but it is worth every penny (or pound). The beach is fabulous with views across to Burgh Island. There is surfing, paddling, swimming and best of all, lying about on soft sand eating a great lunch from the Gastrobus.

Great idea and snacks - however abit put off by the flies. It would only take a glass dome to make it more hygiene

We went on recommendation and a great snack lunch. We had burgers, which we all agreed were as good as any we'd tasted. There were plenty of snack options and delicious cakes to round off your stomach, I mean meal. Don't waste your time with the pub, which is quite expensive, head on down to the gastrobus instead. Only issue might be the weather, so if you drive down to it, you'll have to pay for parking, or you can walk down and risk the weather.
