February Half TermKids Stay & Eat FREE
At Cary Arms, we serve gastro food cooked simply. The watchwords in the kitchen are freshness and seasonality, underpinned by a deep-rooted respect for the surrounding waters and land. The menus specials board changes daily reflecting Devon coast and Devon country in equal measure. Expect superb Devon beef, Lyme Bay lobster and line caught seafood. Food to rival the best.
Hungry walkers, families, friends and travelling foodies - this is a place where even a pint of prawns is done with panache. Dine outdoors in the warmer months and watch south Devon life in the bay unfold. In cooler weather, choose something comforting and slowly cooked from the daily changing blackboard. Flair and freshness explain why we are one of the best places to eat in South Devon!
Dining is relaxed and cosy in the inn. Charmingly restored, the historic inn is warmed by a log burner on cooler days.
Parking is available in the public car park close to the inn.
