Serving Summer in Spadefuls!

The Bucket & Spade is a perfect summer pit stop for al fresco dining, with menus to suit everyone

The Bucket & Spade, view from the restaurant

True to its name, the Bucket & Spade Café in Shaldon has a distinct holiday ambience as soon as you walk through the door. However, it’s the spectacular panoramic view overlooking the Jurassic coastline that wows locals and holidaymakers from the sun-soaked terrace. Take in the far-reaching views of birds, yachts, motorboats, fishing vessels and even the odd cruise ship.

This award-winning café is situated high on a hilltop at Coast View Holiday Park, which offers luxurious five-star lodge and holiday home ownership. It’s the ideal holiday home destination on a stretch of coastline which has picturesque scenery, fine dining, seaside towns and a host of local attractions.

Open to members of the public and lodge owners, the Bucket & Spade Café is the perfect location to relax and unwind with friends and family, offering casual all-day dining in the refurbished restaurant.

Focusing on fresh, locally sourced produce and daily Brixham fish specials, the menu serves up many popular family favourites. Try a delicious full English, or choose a lighter breakfast, or you might be tempted by the enticing new lunch or dinner menu.

You can enjoy healthy salads, sourdough pizzas and a choice of burgers. Its traditional Sunday lunch (with all the trimmings) has become very popular, so book ahead to make sure you secure a table.

The kitchen team at the Bucket & Spade endeavours to cater for everyone, creating a host of mouth-watering dishes including gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options. Supporting local, artisan producers is a real passion here and you’ll find a range of good quality regional beers, wines and spirits available from the well-stocked bar.

Don’t forget to order a scrumptious homemade pudding. Try the decadent brownie, fruity crumble, zesty fresh lemon tart or a fluffy crêpe. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome, so bring them along!

Throughout the holidays, the Bucket & Spade Café regularly provides special offers for families where ‘kids eat free’ with every paying adult. It also puts on an array of live music dinner events, guaranteed to get you dancing! Look out for regular updates on social media and on the website.

There is also plenty to keep visitors entertained during their stay on site at Coast View – including the Be.Well Beauty & Wellness Suite, an indoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym and complimentary golf.

With two other holiday parks located in some of the most beautiful areas of Devon and Cornwall, South West Holiday Parks offers top-end holiday homes on some of the most exclusive Park developments in the South West.
