Blue Whale Cafe

From The Blue Whale Café at Ashby’s of Salcombe you can enjoy sweeping panoramic views across the entire South Hams – from the rolling hills that lead down to Hope Cove, right up to the rugged granite of Dartmoor, and down the descending valleys leading down onto the banks of the Salcombe – Kingsbridge estuary! With both a spacious patio, as well as large glass windows in the café itself, this view can be enjoyed comfortably in all weathers – whether that be behind the enormous glass panes at the side of the restaurant or under a parasol on the patio!

Open 7 days a week from morning to late afternoon, the Blue Whale Café’s chefs work to prepare fresh, locally sourced food from scratch by working in partnership with local farmers and our in-house butcher The Salcombe Meat Company. Aside from our varied menu, which also caters for vegetarians and vegans, we maintain a freshly baked cake counter so you can treat yourself if you so please! Whether you want a full meal or just a drink – The Blue Whale Café can cater for you and our chefs take great pride in making the most delicious food possible!

We are easily accessible by car, with ample free customer parking provided around our shop, and are also located on a regular local bus route as well as being located on the Malborough to Salcombe cycle and footpath! We are a dog-friendly café which also makes us a perfect stop off on your way to or from a walk (and we may even have a treat for them)!

There are designated disabled parking spaces beside our entrance as well as facilities such as a full-equipped disabled toilet.

If you wish to make a booking, or if you have any specific dietary requirements which you would like us to provide for in advance, please call on: 01548 233 109.
