Welcome to the Clocktower Cafe in Sidmouth, Devon. We have been in this stunning location on the south coast of England serving great food for over 24 years. Recently we’ve been through an exciting change of image, and had a makeover, we warmly invite you to join us and see for yourself.

We are open every day throughout the year (except Christmas Day) from 10am – 5pm, and from 9.30am – 6pm during peak season.

We serve an exciting breakfast menu between 10am ~ 12 noon. An extensive and all homemade lunch menu served between 12 noon – 2.30pm, and a wide range of teas, coffees and cakes throughout the day.

Our cakes really need to be seen to be believed, and have gained us an enviable and invitation-only membership in the Great Cake Places of Britain!

Our Menus

Using only the finest of locally sourced ingredients our chefs endeavour to provide a delicious, home-made, culinary treat for you.  We want a visit here to be an experience that you will remember…and to come back for more!

About Us

Every dish and every cake on the menu is caringly and carefully made by Stewart Fraser and his team in the basement kitchen. We acknowledge the importance of first class service, produce and value for money. Sue Sykes and her service team work hard to provide you with just that.
