Cranks Restaurant

The first Cranks restaurant was set up in Carnaby Street, London, in 1961 and was known as the first truly vegetarian restaurant, different from anything that had come before. Today we are very proud to say that we still have a restaurant flying the flag for Cranks at Shops at Dartington (formerly the Cider Press Centre), which lures in customers looking for something out of the ordinary from all over the UK.

Every meal in this self-service restaurant is cooked from scratch, in our on-site kitchen by Tristan, Gwydion, James and Patricia every day. It’s the only way we can guarantee everything is as fresh as we want it to be. And this small but mind-bogglingly efficient team help create a warm, homely atmosphere too and serve tasty, nutritious food.

All the bread is baked locally with Organic flour, and all the food is sourced locally (and by locally we don’t mean France or anything, we mean in Devon) and if you don’t fancy having your lunch in our informal restaurant or secluded garden, you can always ask to take it away to enjoy it in the comfort of your own home.
