Sitting in the low walled garden you are just a few feet from the beach where little rowing boats aplenty are lined up ready for use. Magnificent views of the estuary and out to sea are framed by curvy hills and the sweet little beach where the beautifully maintained little ferry arrives and departs with its old fashioned gangplank.Time lingers in lovely Shaldon and If ever you feel the need to unwind from a demanding world that spins too fast, The Strand Cafe is a real sanctuary in which to enjoy a glass of beer or wine with lovely fresh food and large gulps of fresh sea air!
Inside, the shabby chic appearance belies the staff’s efficiency and the chefs’ skills. This is not a venue to hurry into and out of, as the food here is properly crafted, intelligently blended and presented to you proudly and with a genuine smile. Sit in the window and you can look out to sea, or sit further inside and watch others coming and going as they take in their glorious seaside surroundings, many for the first time.
