Enjoy lunch alongside 200 rescue donkeys at seaside restaurant in Devon

For donkey lovers, this beautiful restaurant on the coast of Devon gives you the opportunity to dine alongside these creatures as you enjoy the incredible coastal views.

Visitors can head to the Donkey Sanctuary, on the Jurassic Coast, in Sidmouth, and enjoy a meal with the adorable creatures. The Sanctuary rescues elderly and unwanted donkeys that visitors can go and see for free.

The Donkey Sanctuary has over 200 of these lovable animals, all of whom have been rehomed here and enjoy a comfortable life. From giant Poitou donkeys to adorable miniature donkeys, you can find a wide variety of species here.

Visitors can now dine at the award-winning onsite restaurant 'The Kitchen', overlooking the donkeys’ paddocks and views of the historic coastline, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Adults can opt for a full English breakfast, a jacket potato or the eatery's signature burger, while the children’s menu features a ‘Donkey Bag’ packed-lunch style meal.

The charity aims to help educate guests on their fuzzy four-legged residents, relying on donations to fund their rescue work.

A spokesperson for The Donkey Sanctuary said: “More than just adorably long ears, soft furry noses and charming characters – donkeys matter.

"Across the globe, entire communities rely on donkeys. Find out why they are so special through fun and interactive displays, which will change your perception of donkeys forever.

“Visit the Understanding Donkeys Zone and see what is involved in caring for the resident herd. Discover donkeys through the ages in the Exhibition Barn and climb aboard an actual mobile unit and see the tools used to provide veterinary treatments to donkeys in remote locations.”

The sanctuary is open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, with free parking. Dogs on leads welcome to visit too.
