Lovely food, service and weather! Definitely recommend
Was a perfect evening, excellent food and wine. Defiantly be coming back.
We had a wonderful anniversary meal with some friends and their dog. The whole experience was just what we had hoped, great food in a wonderful setting. The staff were friendly and very accommodating to our requests.
Will definitely revisit when back in Sunny Devon
Fabulous location, friendly and attentive young staff, and good food. Menu is small (a good thing) and seasonal, with fresh fish high on the list. Delicious desserts and good selection of gins in particular.
Very friendly and efficient service, well-cooked food and beautiful views. Couldn't be bettered.
Great location, good feeling but more choice needed
The food was superb and enough if a helping to satisfy. The staff were attentive and apologetic that they only had one pizza oven, so different dishes were delivered at different times if pizza was involved. However we were warned of this in advance, so not a big issue.
Perfect meal - went right back and had Breakfast the next day!
Really enjoyed our breakfast. Staff really friendly and nothing was too much trouble
A beautiful location and fantastic service! We came for breakfast, husband loved his choice. I had the pancakes which were really nice but I was surprised they didn’t come with actual fruit, same with my daughter’s pancakes. Only a minor negative otherwise loved it and we will be back again soon for lunch probably!
Lovely setting for a peaceful lunch, right on the millpond at Stoke Gabriel. It was very busy but the setting is such that it didn’t feel like it. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hake tacos were delicious and the fish of the day on toast very tasty. Good portions too. I would highly recommend the shack, so get your booking in!
We were lucky enough to book a table for a family lunch, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it
Ophelia ( Elsa from Frozen) looked after us beautifully !!!
Great location, food and great value
Will book again
Thank you very much
Delicious vegetarian option with great care and attention to flavour and texture.
Quick, friendly service. Great food.
Great food in a picturesque setting. Very varied menu
Amazing restaurant, tasty food and location stunning.
Arrived at the river shack 10 mins late due to sat nav giving us wrong directions i phoned and left message to say running late! when we got there all tables full and were told there would be one coming up soon outside, we had booked a table inside and had not come dressed for eating out. We were told by staff that they would move us inside first chance they had so was disappointing,otherwise food was good although menu limited, crab starter was beautiful, staff helpful and friendly just a shame about the table mix up
Amazing place, friendly and efficient staff. Been twice and the standard across the board is maintained.
The staff were very friendly , however they need training. Literally incompetent. Didn’t bring cutlery or napkins on more than one occasion after bringing the food out. One of the waitresses knocked drink over when placing meal down on the table and didn’t even offer to replace the drink and we didn’t even bother asking her to. She apologised but appeared clueless. When they cleared our table, they only cleared half of it and then asked if we wanted the bill........ we didn’t as we wanted cream teas. When the scones arrived they had forgotten about the tea, again no napkins..... we had to ask. Then we wanted another cup and saucer as the pot of tea was quite big. We asked for another cup and that’s what we got..... minus the saucer. Not sure what they are used to themselves, however surely it’s not much to ask for cutlery and napkins. As I say, they were really nice people but need a lot of training. I think it was also over priced. £12:95 for burger and chips. Selection on menu is extremely limited as well. Could be so much better as it’s in a great spot with great outdoor seating. All in all, menu rubbish and staff require training.
Idylic setting, matched by the food & service. Highly recommend & can’t wait to return.
Beautiful relaxed meal in stunning location. Well organised and a short but good menu.
Delicious breakfast al fresco on a lovely sunny morning
Beautiful location and a justifiably busy and bustling venue. The food, drinks and service were all excellent and we liked it enough for it to be our second visit. A lovely relaxed lunch
Excellent breakfast, try the smoked butter beans with a poached egg! Lovely peaceful location even on a busy day. Helpful and charming service. Be back again soon.
Really lovely being able to sit by the mill pool. Lovely atmosphere and great food and coffee.
Excellent lunch, service fast and charming even though it was busy. Will, as ever, a great host. Baked eggs with smoked salmon and asparagus were particularly tasty with delicious Sharpham white wine.
Excellent service the girl that served us was very enthusiastic and helpful the food was amazing the view was amazing and the kids loved ‘crabbing’
Thank you River Shack, we shall certainly be back !!
Lovely place situated right next to the river dart. The service is great, especially considering how busy it is. Due to Covid restrictions you must book a table otherwise there is no guarantee you’ll get one. I’ve never seen the place so busy! It’s not cheap but it’s good quality and friendly service. Dogs are welcome and that’s also a bonus.
Fresh imaginative tasty food. Lovely location, great service
Wonderful sunny day sat outside next to the river. Service was outstanding - really friendly and engaging team. Great setting and would highly recommend but you do need to book.
Fantastic location, superb food, excellent value & very friendly helpful staff.
Lakeside relaxing setting.
Very Good service, Delicious Burgers .
Some interesting salads would be nice.
Or a few more healthy options.
Had a wonderful lunch on Bank Holiday Monday. The sun was shining and the tide was in - all extremely blissful. All five of us enjoyed our lunch which was very tasty and would love to come back again
Love this place. Fab food and really friendly and efficient service. Can’t wait to return.
Absolutely fabulous meal again on Sunday. Definitely our favourite place to eat out at the moment. Friendly staff, lovely location and the quality of the food is first class .
Perfect in every way. We ate lunch and the food was fantastic. We both had cuttlefish, with potatoes & samphire with a hint of lemon garlic and chilli
We had lunch at The River Shack on a sunny Sunday. Such a happy atmosphere, with friendly and helpful service, and excellent food. Really loved the pizza, but everything was excellent. And the Hunt’s Devon cider is absolutely addictive! Wish we lived closer, we’d be regulars!
Fab place - great food - great service. XXXXXXXXXXX
The service was fantastic, the food was tasty and great value for money. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Overall a wonderful experience at a superb venue. Thank you to all the staff at The Shack for everything.
10/10 very helpful and accommodating. We were running late, the restaurant made our food prior to us arriving so the kitchen didn’t close. Beautiful location.
