The café at Castle Drogo

Bowl of pumpkin soup, with bread roll accompaniment

Situated just a stone's throw from the Teign Gorge, the café is the perfect place to refuel after a long walk on the estate. The café serves hot and cold drinks, lunches, light snacks and of course cake.

The property, including visitor centre (café, shop and toilets), garden and grounds are closed for winter maintenance from the 17 January – 18 February


Winter in the café​ 

Heading off for a winter stroll? We've got warming hot chocolates, lattes and of course a cup of tea to keep those mittens toasty. If you're looking for lunch, why not try one of our wintery one pots or a seasonal soups.
