Spend your days with a restorative massage or bespoke spa treatment, a picnic down on the beach or take a table on the terrace for lunch.

At Cary Arms & Spa, we serve gastro food cooked simply. The watchwords in the kitchen are freshness and seasonality, underpinned by a deep-rooted respect for the surrounding waters and land. The specials board changes daily reflecting Devon coast and Devon country in equal measure. Expect superb Devon beef, Lyme Bay lobster and line caught seafood. Food to rival the best.
Hungry walkers, families, friends and travelling foodies - this is a place where even a pint of prawns is done with panache. Dine outdoors in the warmer months and watch south Devon life in the bay unfold. In cooler weather, choose something comforting and slowly cooked from the seasonally changing menus. The best quality local ingredients cooked simply and expertly explain why we are one of the best places to eat in South Devon!
Beamed ceilings, original stone walls, planked floors, books and boardgames. The informal mood is achieved with effortless style. Sympathetic to it’s proud heritage, the welcoming interior combines clean lines with a neutral coastal palette. Prop up the bar for as long as you like. Bring your dog along after a long coastal walk. Bracing sea air, grown up adventures, fishing from the pier. Your appetite will sharpen itself. Inside, big windows show off views across the bay. Portland Bill, fifty miles away, is visible on clear days. A crackling log fire and the lure of a proper pint makes it feel special and secluded here. Otter Ale and Bays are just two of the highlights. Unpretentious friendly service sets the tone.
