The River Shack at Stoke Gabriel

Apr 12, 2019

We are delighted and very excited for our friends and relations Will and Faye, who have just achieved their dream, by taking over the River Shack cafe in Stoke Gabriel. It’s in a beautiful location by the Dart and a large mill pond, ideal for crabbing and sitting in the sunshine!

There has been a fair amount of work involved in updating the cafe, including completely refitting the kitchen, making some beautiful new wooden tables and benches, a lot of painting and finishing touches like flowers. We think it looks utterly transformed inside and we hope that their customers will enjoy it.

Will is Lucy’s brother and he and his girlfriend Faye have worked in hospitality for many years, most recently managing the cafe at Gara Rock near Salcombe.

They opened for drinks and cakes and cream teas last week, and will be introducing hot food from next Tuesday. They plan to be open Tuesday – Sunday throughout the summer.

Of course we hope you will still be visiting us at the Guardhouse but also why not give them a try one day?!
