Your guide to the best of the Jurassic coast

The Kitchen is tranquillity personified; freshly prepared dishes using local, ethically sourced produce are served as spectacular views over The Donkey Sanctuary and the rolling hills of Devon to the sea provide a serene backdrop. This new restaurant also asserts a unique integrity, with all profits supporting the charity’s objectives to support donkey welfare worldwide.

This brand new restaurant has been designed to allow diners to relax in spacious surroundings which are blessed with a modern-rustic charm, while the veranda provides a special dining experience overlooking the donkey’s paddocks and views to the Jurassic Coast.

Enjoy great value, seasonal and wholesome food in a warm and welcoming environment, including hearty breakfasts, delicious lunches and a varied children’s menu as well as drinks, snacks and cakes. Vegetarians and vegans are also well-catered for.

Admission and parking is free (donations welcome) and food is served from 9am to 5pm daily. Dogs are welcome in The Kitchen and at The Donkey Sanctuary as long as they are kept on a lead.
