The Kitchen is tranquillity personified; freshly prepared dishes using local, ethically sourced produce are served as spectacular views over the 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 with a varied children's menu and indulgent afternoon treats, as well as light snacks and cakes throughout the day. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free eaters are also well-catered for.
