Treat yourself to a delicious cream tea

After a day exploring the castle and grounds, reward yourself with a scone, jam and cream and a warming cup of tea. The scones are made fresh every day and the jam is produced by Waterhouse Fayre using traditional methods from their own kitchen, nothing artificial is added.

Relax and recharge

Indulge yourself with a delicious snack or light meal at our café.

From warming soups to sandwiches and sweet treats, there’s something for all tastes.

Situated at the entrance to the Drogo estate, just a stone's throw from the Teign Valley, the café is the perfect place to warm up after a long walk. Eat alfresco on our patio area; during the warmer months, our café doors open wide joining the outdoors with ease and open spaces. Our traditional cream teas, with homemade scones, locally made clotted cream and strawberry jam, are a popular favourite. You also won’t want to miss our wide selection of mouth-watering cakes, all freshly made on site.

Our catering team work hard to prepare specials which reflect the seasons, so there is always something new to try. We use seasonal produce which we buy locally wherever possible. We even use our own venison in autumn. It doesn't get more local than that.

Venison burger

One of our most popular specials is our venison burger. The venison comes from the Castle Drogo estate, you can't get more local than that.

Ice cream

Cool down after a long walk by enjoying an ice cream outside in the sun. Our award winning ice cream is from Salcombe diary and is made from Devon clotted cream.
