We are hoping to re-open in time for Easter. At the moment my broken leg requires a metal spatial external frame

which gives me limited movement.


I am a regular feature at Exeter Hospital for guidance from my surgeon and ongoing

physiotherapy and am working hard to get back to normal.


You are still welcome to Email us using the form on the contact us page.


I will post further information on this page as and when progress is made and in the meantime

thank you for your patience.


We look forward to seeing you all soon.


Andy & Caroline.



To our award winning Bensons Restaurant on  Appledore Quay here in North Devon where we pride ourselves on the quality of our locally sourced fresh fish some of which is landed on the quay opposite

We also offer a fine selection of prime cuts of meat and poultry and if you have the room, fantastic home made puds and great British cheeses.

If you have any allergies or special dietary requirements please let us know when you make your reservation and refer to our allergens page.

Bensons is an adult sanctuary and as such are unable to cater for the under twelves.

It is said that actions speak louder than words, so come and give us a try, we look forward to spoiling you!

We are easy to find on the quay at Appledore, half way between the Post Office and the car park. But, before you make a special journey, please call to reserve a table. During the Autumn & Winter months we are open for dinner on Thursday Friday & Saturday evenings for pre~booked tables, once booked the table is yours for the evening, so, sit back, relax and leave the rest to us!

Fill us up and we open anytime!! (10-20 people) Please call us to arrange details.

We look forward to meeting you,

Andy and Caroline
