Places to Eat - Braunton
We are very lucky to have a great choice of eateries within walking distance of The Chiggypig - here are a few of our favourites.
This is just a 5 minute walk away. They serve breakfast, lunches and evening meals. Fabulous bar also with great selection of gins and cocktails. Often have live music bands during the week. Very popular with local residents. Recommend you book a table for evening meal or Sunday roast as it gets very busy.

Another fabulous restaurant in the village centre - about 8 mins walk away. Great selection of evening meals, lunches, breakfasts, Sunday roasts and cream teas. Pretty much covers everything. They also offer a takeaway curry. If you want a table for an evening meal - book in advance as this often gets booked up with larger groups

Cosy Thai restaurant situated about 7 minutes away. Really lovely authentic thai food, good service and very relaxed atmosphere.
The Siam Bistro
Cosy Thai restaurant situated about 7 minutes away. Really lovely authentic thai food, good service and very relaxed atmosphere.
Rated as one of the best fish and chip shops in North Devon and extremely popular with locals and visitors. During the summer months this place is rammed. You can't pre book a table in the restaurant so don't be surprised if you have to queue but its well worth the wait. The place is run by a local family (The Squires) and they are very professional. If you don't fancy a sit down meal, the takeaway next door is just as fabulous. You can use their click and collect service to save queuing. You cannot beat eating fish & chips on the beach watching the sunset

One of my absolutely favourite walks. This is approx. 40 mins drive from us but worth the visit. A great woodland walk that leads to a open pebble beach. There is a fantastic pub there that serves great food so you can treat yourself after the walk back to a lovely meal.

Another fantastic walk from Lynmouth along the woodlands following the river to the café at the end of the walk. This is really pleasant but not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. From this walk you can then go in to Lynmouth to explore this seaside village where they are some quaint shops and the famous cliff railway up to Lynton.

Another great beach just round the peninsula from Saunton. Smaller and for the more confident surfer - this is a great place to hang out. The village of Croyde has shops, cafes and pubs to explore. very popular with visitors and surfers. Hosts the Goldcoast Oceanfest in June which is 3 day music festival and very popular. Very busy village in the summer months.

Traffic free village of cobbled streets and cute cottages - its a lovely place to explore but not for those who struggle with walking as its a very steep hill.

If you want cake, cream teas or yummy sandwiches then this is the place to visit. This is not for those who are on a diet because everything is just delicious. They are very busy so you will need to wait for a table. You can book ahead if you want to have a high tea during the week but you will need to arrange this well in advance
