South Devon Vegetarian Restaurants

Dartington - Totnes - Cranks Restaurant


Dartington Cider Press Centre is an entertaining place to visit with many attractions on a rainy day in the South Hams (and a sunny one, too!)  This is a very different visitor and craft centre, located in the beautiful countryside, a couple of miles from the charming town of Totnes. With wonderfully restored stone buildings, modelled on a small village, this craft centre houses twelve high quality shops and two cafes and restaurants. You can choose from Dartington Crystal, hand thrown pottery, books, special kitchenware, artisan jewellery, home made stationery, delicious farm foods, toys, plants, very traditional crafts and Dartington Cider. At holiday times watch out for free street theatre, ranging from jugglers and skilled unicyclists to lively jazz bands and even Paraguayan harpists. And you may be lucky enough to see a special exhibition or a wonderful food and cider tasting. Cranks Restaurant offers excellent vegetarian food, or you can visit Muffins for a light meal. Located in the Craft complex, this craft complex and cafe is a big tourist attraction and likely to be crowded. It is, however, entirely vegetarian and the standard is pretty good. Spend the day visiting the delightful shops and take a break for food - there's a wide choice, and it's all good.

Open all year around, Monday - Saturday, 9.30 am - 5.30 pm, Sunday 10.30 am - 4.30 pm. Cider Press Centre, Dartington, Totnes, TQ9 6JB

Exeter - Herbies

Herbies may well appeal to everyone, veggie or not, for its innovative and delicious menu features dishes and flavours from around the world. It's a laid-back place, informal during the day, more formal at night, when the dinner menu offers the very best vegetarian food. The place is a long-standing tradition in Exeter, and provides really great vegetarian food which all the family can enjoy!
