The Guardhouse cafe is set idyllically on Berry Head with its superb views. The staff are really friendly, even bringing biscuits for our dog. There is the usual range of food and drinks that you would expect at a beauty spot (hot and cold drinks with a range of tea-plate food) but there is also a specials board offering hot meals. My lasting memory will be the friendly spirit of the staff and the views. Highlight of our visit was watching a school of porpoises swimming off the headland.

Just had a really good lunch up at the Guardhouse. We have been before, but I don't generally write reviews, so this review is due to a buildup of appreciation of the place and the food.

My partner and I had falafel and my mother in law had bacon and eggs on toast (which they gave us after breakfast menu had officially ended, which is always a good customer service start).

The falafel are homemade (as are most things), and the bacon and eggs are local (again...as are most things they can source locally).

We also had tea (not much point reviewing a brew), and a luscombe ginger beer, which is a local and really tasty drink.

The place was really busy, on a glorious day, but due to the efficiency the turnover is quick and you don't have to wait long for a seat if it is rammed. There is good seating inside and if it's fine, an amazing view from the seats outside.

Staff are really nice and that means the atmosphere was relaxed. We had our 6 month old there and you can tell how nice a place is by the number of people happy to coo over a baby. The cooing rate was high.

Anyway. Location is amazing, people lovely, food great. That's it really.
