Dishing up something delicious every day
We pride ourselves as Devon's only floating "gastro shed" and work hard to create the best dining experience from carefully chosen ingredients.
Don't forget we often have daily specials.
We like to use only the freshest local ingredients wherever possible. We are lucky enough to have some of the best food producers in Devon on our doorstep and take full advantage.

We keep it local, keep it fresh and keep it tasting great
FRESH FISH and SEAFOOD
We are proud to now have permission from DEFRA to have freshly caught fish delivered to the cafe from local fishermen. World Champion gig-rower Ian Donohue is one local fisherman who often supplies our lobsters from his vessel 'Girl Scout'. We also use Devon Quality Fish (Exmouth), Exmouth Mussels when available and Fish on the Quay (Exmouth). We often see our fisherman at work as they pass the cafe. Our chef, Chris Dayer, cleverly adapts our Specials Menu to incorporate the local catch. Our oysters are supplied by Dorset Oysters and are farmed sustainably in the shores of Brownsea Island, Poole Harbour.
MEAT, DAIRY, FRUIT and VEGETABLES
We are proud to use Dart Fresh Produce, a local family run business who are Red Tractor and Soil Association certified. Family owned Philip Dennis also supply many of our ingredients, along with Forest Produce.
Ebb Tides is another local company that supplies our sustainably harvested edible seaweeds which are used to season our dishes. Devon based Dunstable Farm Ltd supply our delicious ice-cream.
Our extensive drinks menu includes a number of local suppliers. We serve local beers including Hanlons Yellow Hammer (on tap), Stormstay Premium Ale and Port Stout. We also serve Devon Craft lager on tap. Our local ciders are from Green Valley and Annings. For local wines we are supplied by Pebblebed in Topsham. Our fruit juices are sourced locally from Luscombe. We even serve local spirits including Gin Jar from Devon, Black Cow Vodka from Dorset, Taste of the West Gold winner Wicked Wolf gin from Exmoor and Salcombe Gin. We are pleased to have added Exmouth's very own George from Spoken's Quick Gin. Many of our drink products are supplied to us by Tolchards.
