Welcome to the Guardhouse Cafe!

Our friendly cafe is located in Berry Head Nature Reserve, inside a Napoelonic-era fortress. Whether your passion is history, wildlife, walking or relaxing with family and friends in a beautiful place, Berry Head has something for you - even before trying our fabulous food!

We were delighted to win GOLD at the 2015 Devon Tourism Awards in the 'best cafe / tearoom' category and a HIGHLY COMMENDED award at the 2016 Visit England Tourism Awards in the 'Taste of England' category.


Open every day through the winter except Christmas Day from 9am until 4:30pm (back to 5pm when the days get longer again!)

We serve freshly-prepared hot food from 9am (on our current winter schedule, our kitchen closes at 3:30pm)
