The Cafe

The Bakehouse welcomes you into a beautiful setting where old world and original features meet with a modern industrial twist. Enjoy the home from home comfort and relax into a world of great smelling coffee and homemade delights.

Run by Chris and Miranda Marklew together with their talented chefs and a friendly team, you’ll have the pleasure of perusing our creative specials board with breakfasts, lunches and gorgeous platters which complement our menu featuring your old favourites with a spin.

We have a wide selection of locally produced drinks including our lovely coffee from Owens in Ivybridge, Devon, a wide variety of teas and locally produced juices and ales.

Our dishes are freshly prepared by our kitchen and use locally sourced products wherever possible, to help support our local community and produce very tasty food… and you have to try our mouthwatering home made cakes!

So whether its just for a latte and a slice of cake or you’d like to stay and enjoy a daily special with a glass of wine, come and soak up the history surrounding you and listen to the perfect accompanying music… and the noisy kitchen 🙂

Best food, staff and ambience My son lives close by this wonderful bistro style cafe, so we use it quite often. We have been here for breakfast a few times and yesterday for lunch being Mother's Day. The ambience is lovely and the food is always so good and well presented. It's great to think that he lives so close to a place which is so charming.

Great Place! My friend and I stopped here on way back from Bristol airport, and so pleased we did. The service was friendly, the setting was warm & inviting (woodburner was lit) and the food was excellent! Great menu with various options (my friend is gluten intolerant) all served with a smile. Will definitely recommend.

Dry cake, lovely lattee We ordered some coffees and cake. The coffees were great, warm and tasted lovely. Service was good too. However the cake I had was very dry. It was lemon drizzle and this is usually a moist cake.

Wonderful! Stopped here for breakfast this morning on our way home from staying near Cullompton. Excellent food/service/value for money. Quite possibly one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had. Gorgeous place too! Highly recommend.

Great Meeting Place Really good find for us as it was the perfect meeting spot between our homes in Devon and Somerset. Very easy to find. The food was some of the best I've had in a cafe and the service was excellent and friendly.
