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 4pm (back to 5pm when the days get longer again!)

We serve freshly-prepared hot food from 9am (in the winter our kitchen closes at 3:15pm)
