You might remember a few months ago we were invited to sample one of Chef Rob Dawe’s Pop-up Restaurants at The Heart of Oak in Pinhoe. It was a fantastic evening, and something which we enjoyed immeasurably.
I’m happy to announce that Rob is going to be at The Lock Keeper’s Cottage Cafe in Topsham for a couple of weeks, from the 19th August until Monday 31st August (closed on 24th and 25th August). The opening hours are 10:30am – 4pm weekdays and 10am – 5pm weekends.
The cafe isn’t accessible by car. You can either park at Turf Lock’s pub and walk up, or its accessible via the Topsham Ferry.
There will be home-made cakes available with hot and cold drinks available throughout the day or how about treating yourself to a canalside cream tea with home-made strawberry jam and Devon clotted cream in the afternoon? Rob is also providing a small but elegant lunch menu using local produce between Midday and 3pm with a selection of home-made desserts all served with honeycomb and vanillar shortbread & fresh strawberries.
Main courses are excellent value price (given Rob’s heritage) in the region of £7 and desserts £3.50. Or fancy two courses for £10?
A children’s menu will also be available. Although bookings are not being taken, if there are more than six people planning to visit, please ring Rob in advance on 07745438481
I’ve borrowed heavily from Rob’s email from his exclusive mailing list. If you want to know more about Rob’s events, send Rob an email requesting subscription to chefrobdawe at gmail.com
