Welcome to the Clock Tower in Sidmouth, Devon.

With the Fraser family at the helm, the Clock Tower has been serving locals and visitors alike for well over 27 years. Perched on the cliff overlooking the sea in Sidmouth’s beautiful Connaught Gardens, it’s an East Devon landmark.

Given the café’s long history, it’s no surprise the Clock Tower occasionally needs a little TLC. With Justine, Stewart’s wife, now heading up front of house, the Fraser family plan to go a little further – and give this iconic eaterie a fresh new look and feel!

Justine is bringing her business experience and design eye to the project and, over the next few months, the Clock Tower will undergo a period of renovation and rejuvenation. When you next step through the doors, you’ll discover an elegant, contemporary restaurant – one that’s a perfect fit for such a gorgeous location. And while you’ll notice many changes, rest assured the heritage of the Clock Tower will live on, not least with Stewart still overseeing those magnificent puddings, cakes and pastries!
