~café~ ~bar~ ~deli~ ~shop~

Located in the heart of the village of Culmstock, on the banks of the River Culm on the edge of the Blackdown Hills in Devon.

The Strand Stores is more than meets the eye, not only a village shop, but also a lovely café and coffee shop.

A quaint and quirky setting for you to enjoy speciality coffee, seasonal, fresh, local food, homemade cakes, bakes, pastries and scones.
A perfect spot to enjoy one of the many picturesque walks from our doorstep. A level walk along the river or a climb up to Culmstock Beacon to enjoy the breathtaking views, see our local walks tab for more info. We welcome cyclists too, so be sure to factor in a coffee stop when planning your routes.
We are dog friendly, so you can be sure there will always be a bowl of water and maybe even a treat for your four legged friends.
We also offer outside catering and bar for any occasion, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements

Our Food

“Great little shop, very friendly staff and really nice cake. We didn’t eat in as it was a flying visit, but would highly recommend as chairs inside and out so you can have a drink or food whilst listening to the river Culm.”
