Visit us

We have been welcoming customers for more than 25 years!

Our particular brand of shabby chic beach restaurant always buzzes with activity as people congregate for Lunch or our evening menu and all the bits in between, throughout the year.

All ice cream colours and an eclectic mix of decor from some of our favourite aspects of life by the sea, The Winking Prawn is a family run and family friendly restaurant where we aim to offer something for everyone. It’s date night, evenings out with friends, family lunches and chats over coffee or a glass of wine.

Much of our menu is characterised by the local seafood that we’re so lucky to have available on our doorstep.

Firm favourites are the buckets of prawns and platters of shellfish, but we’re also partial to big juicy steaks, Devon cream teas and an endless supply of beer and wine.

"If you're looking for a shabby chic, retro cafe with amazing seafood and staff, then look no further! We were simply blown away."
