The Clocktower Cafe is perched in an unrivalled position within the award winning Connaught Gardens, on the stunning Jurassic south coast of East Devon. 24 years on from humble beginnings the Clocktower Cafe has remained solidly under the same ownership of Sue Sykes, Stewart Fraser and family, we are very proud of our excellent reputation for quality service and delicious food.

It has a fascinating history from 17th century lime kiln to the busy café that you see today. The Grade II building has been lovingly and painstakingly restored from 1991 to the present day. The restoration itself involved the necessity for many structural alterations and improvements which continue to this day. Throughout all of these dramatic works, we have ensured that this iconic building has retained its integrity and aesthetic beauty whilst providing a sensational setting for this now famous establishment.
We want to delight and surprise time after time. We work tirelessly to bring our valued customers the quality, classic dishes that we know are loved and we also strive to improve upon them and to offer new and exciting, innovative, dishes but always serve wonderful food to remember.
