Food and drink

Vino Great Italian wines from small estates. Pink house next door to the Lively Hope. Opening times are erratic - best to knock on the door and ask what is available. Guests are honorary Club Vino members and can purchase at club prices (try the Barbera!).

Pebblebed Wines Award-winning English wines from grapes grown just two miles from Topsham. Wines can be tasted and purchased in The Wine Cellar on Wed-Saturday evenings most times of the year, as well as Saturday during the day (usually). Enjoy the local wine while watching the sun go down over the Haldon Hills!

Petite Maison Probably Topsham’s best restaurant. Well, we think so anyway.

Oliva Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.

The Galley Restaurant Popular fish and seafood restaurant on the river almost opposite The Lively Hope. Also outstanding takeaway fish and chips.

Route 2 Café Bar & Cycle Hire Just around the corner from The Lively Hope (what isn't?) - an all-day licensed café bar that also offers bicycle hire. Rent a bike and cycle on the Route 2 national cycle path from Topsham to the sea at Exmouth.

The Bridge Inn Legendary and famous pub most notable for it outstanding cask-conditioned ales and unique and unchanging style. The only pub ever visited by HM the Queen!

Turf Take the Sea Dream ferry to this unique waterside pub (can only be reached by foot, boat or cycle). Excellent beers, wines and great pub food.

Country Cheeses Really outstanding artisan cheese shop selling mainly West Country cheeses.

Darts Farm A veritable one-stop shopping destination in its own right. Great food hall - meat from Gerald David, fish from the Fish Shed, delicatessan, veg and much more. Plus you can buy your AGA while your here, tiles from Fired Earth, an original work of art, or your ice axe for climbing on Dartmoor. Tea shop-cum-restaurant is a nice place to come for full English breakfast or for lunch or tea. Fish Shed fish & chips are the best ever.

Michael Caines at ABode Exeter Located on Exeter’s lovely Cathedral Yard. Michael Caines is Exeter’s most famous chef and our local food hero. Come to his signature restaurant for a special meal, or to the Café Bar or Well House Tavern for more informal foods.
