Reasons for trip

Teignmouth is a mostly quiet little seaside resort on the Devon coast, with a traditional pier and promenade along the seafront. Until recently, there was only one cafe actually on the promenade offering views out to sea, but the refurbishment of the local theatre included a very nice eating and drinking area with a similar panorama.

Teignmouth Pavilions is a brand new entertainment venue and the attached View Cafe-Bar is not only intended for pre-show diners but is open to the public throughout the day. A range of breakfasts is available, but my wife and I went for lunch and drinks. We both had a fairly traditional fish and chips which was excellent, but we were also tempted by some of the other dishes on offer. I’ll attach a photo of the menu, from which you may be able to make out that the choices are fairly standard, with prices probably about what you would expect – neither cheap, nor outrageously expensive. I also gave into the temptation of the Lemon Zester cheesecake, which was delicious!

The highlight, however, is the marvellous view from the upstairs bar, over the pier, out to sea, past the Exe estuary and onwards to the Jurassic coast in the distance. Unfortunately, on the day we were there it was very windy and no-one was braving the weather to sit on the outside terrace, but we hope to return and enjoy that soon. The View is certainly a welcome addition to Teignmouth seafront!
