Coleton Fishacre Cafe

Brownstone Road

A weekend trip to Dartmouth was full of sunshine (well, on the Saturday at least). We started off on the Kingswear side of things, at Coleton Fishacre, a beautiful Art Deco house and 12-acre gardens that used to belong to the D'Oyly Carte family (mostly known because they owned the Savoy Theatre in London and brought Gilbert and Sullivan together). Before we had a look around though, we decided to fill our bellies at the cafe which boasted a lot of local produce. Above is the Dartmouth smokehouse platter with trout, mackerel and salmon alongside local gooseberry  & elderflower chutney. A generous bread basket accompanied it full of freshly baked white and wheat rolls. This was the perfect lunch to have in the bright outdoor terrace - light but flavorful and fresh. I think the rest of the family enjoyed their meals as well, so this is a cafe that gets a thumbs up from me.
