Coast The coast from Exmouth into Dorset is a designated World
Dartmoor National Park is virtually on the doorstep.
Food and drink
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!).
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!
Maison Probably Topsham’s best restaurant. Well, we think
Galley Restaurant Popular fish and seafood restaurant on
the river almost opposite The Lively Hope. Also outstanding
takeaway fish and chips.
2 Café Bar & Cycle Hire Just around
the corner from The Lively Hope (what isn't?) - an all-day licensed
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.
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!
Take the Sea Dream ferry to this unique waterside pub (can only
be reached by foot, boat or cycle). Excellent beers, wines and great
Cheeses Really outstanding artisan cheese shop selling mainly
West Country cheeses.
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.

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
