5 Great Alfresco Eating Spots In Tavistock

Come rain or shine, Tavistock has plenty of outdoor eating spots for you to enjoy. It has been far too long since we have been able to enjoy a coffee with a friend, a delicious dinner with the family or a glass (or two!) of wine somewhere that isn't on the sofa. It's time to get outside and enjoy some alfresco dining at an abundance of local eateries. Here are a few recommendations:

1. The Annex

Whether you are after a delicious selection of tapas, or just a drink in the sunshine, The Annex offers not only spectacular food, but also a stylish and welcoming atmosphere. Surrounded by mellow music, candles and most importantly heaters for those chillier days, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on a beautiful terrace that looks over the town.

2. The Cornish Arms

Known for being one of top 50 Gastropubs in the country, The Cornish Arms offers both quality food and beverages, as well as a cosy and rustic atmosphere. Their newly renovated outside space is perfect for those slightly cooler evenings, where you will be surrounded by outdoor fires, twinkling lights and private, spacious table areas. Make sure to book a table if you are coming to eat - they are very popular!

3. Dukes Coffee House

Situated in the heart of Tavistock, Dukes Coffee House is the perfect spot to grab a coffee and a delicious lunch. Take a seat in their large outdoor seating space and admire the hustle and bustle of the daily Pannier Market trading. This is a great spot for a spacious catch up with friends! And not worry if it's a last minute plan, Dukes don't take bookings because their outdoor area can accommodate plenty. They even have their Ice Cream Parlour kitted out... The perfect spot for an afternoon treat!

4. Church Lane

Did someone say rum bar?... And pizza? Church Lane offers a beautiful courtyard eating area that looks over Bedford Square and St Eustachius' Church. Surrounded by greenery and beautiful architecture, Church Lane offers an ideal central location, whilst being tucked away in its own Mediterranean paradise. Snuggle under a blanket next to a fire heater and enjoy a cocktail (or mocktail!) and a freshly baked pizza.

5. EastGate Café and Brasserie

Situated on the bank of the River Tavy, enjoy breakfast, lunch or a beverage overlooking the beautiful water. Whether you are after a Full English or one of Tavistock's famous Cream Tea's, EastGate Café and Brasserie offers a secluded spot with gorgeous scenery whilst still being right in the centre of town. The perfect spot for a mid shopping spree refreshment!
