Jo and her team of lovely front of house staff including Abbey, Maia, Maddie, Amy, Holly and Ella will be on hand 7 days a week to welcome you to their lovely River Cafe in Ivybridge, located in Glanvilles Mill. 

Our kitchen team consists of Didier, Julie, Ben, Sam and Ella and the front of house team members occasionally too.

All dishes on our menu can be "Take Away", including breakfasts, baguettes, pasties, sausage rolls, jacket potatoes and pastries/cakes and hot/cold drinks.

Please Note WE DO NOT reserve tables for less than 5 people as we have ample seating both inside, outside and on the terrace for everyone.  Thank you for understanding.

We pride ourselves on selecting & serving local, fresh produce - you can see all of our menus on the navigation bar above and we also offer  "Daily Specials" written on our blackboards, inside and out. 

We have an extensive range of homemade cakes for you to enjoy with our locally sourced coffee. so why not sit and relax on our amazing, scenic and huge outdoor terrace with sliding glass doors - in the eventuality that its actually too hot to handle and you need to slide them open to enjoy fresh cool air!  Not too often I'm sure in the UK but occasionally for sure.

When you visit us, the Breakfast, Drinks and Desserts and Cream Tea menus are in the buckets on the table so you can just find yourself a seat and then go to the bar to order, with your table number.  If you are in for Lunch there are blue menus positioned in front of the till and blackboards inside and to the front of the cafe depicting the "daily specials".  Again, just find yourself a table and then order and pay with your table number at the bar.  Help yourself to any of the condiments at the till and on the wall to the right of the terrace double doors and we will then bring the rest your table for you.  You can also now help yourself to tap water from our outdoor tap, with glasses or jugs also provided on the trolley for  your convenience.

Dogs, Hikers, Cyclists, Runners, Swimmers, Ramblers, Leisure Centre Class goers and anyone else out enjoying the fringes of Dartmoor are welcome here 7-days a week so please pop in any day and sit and enjoy some local food and drink to replenish your energy levels!!  We very much look forward to seeing you soon.

Please bear in mind that whilst we endeavour to make your stay enjoyable and fulfilling, if on occasions we are training new staff and young individuals, or are understaffed due to sickness, and things don't exactly go according to plan, please have the courtesy to be polite and mindful that they are learning and doing their best, be it making the coffees, the milk frothing, crepe making, cake cutting, dessert preparation, the food orders, the till, the table numbers, answering your questions or generally  helping you out in any way they can.  Being in hospitality is hard work and it does not help if people are impolite, impatient or just generally rude or aggressive, so please do not undermine their confidence whilst they are learning and be respectful of their hardwork and their best endeavours.
