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 have been delighted and humbled in recent years to win several prestigious awards, including the Taste of the West "South West Cafe of the Year" in 2018, and gold awards for "Best Cafe in Devon" at the Devon Tourism Awards in both 2015 and 2017. We also won the gold award for "Best Cafe" at the 2017 South Devon Tourism Awards. We are always striving to further improve our service, food and drinks and would love your feedback about how we could make your visit even more special.

We are open every day through the winter except Christmas Day. Our winter opening hours are 9am to 4pm.

We serve freshly-prepared hot food from 9am. In the winter months we take last food orders at 3:15pm.
