Four of us had lunch today, we were warmly greeted and offered a table in our preferred conservatory. The location is outstanding with great views. Prompt service with meals arriving within 15 minutes. Food (Fish and chips, omelette and sandwiches) was good and plentiful. Will definitely return.

We came here last year after our wedding and loved it so much we came back for our first anniversary. We stayed for 3 nights and it was even better than we remembered! It is in such a beautiful location and our room was incredible. We had breakfast every morning and that was well presented and tasted great! A special... More

We stayed for 2 nights. The Ness in in a wonderful position, Shaldon is beautiful and a short ferry ride takes you to Teigmouth. Our room was enormous with a lovely bathroom, a mini kitchen, comfy bed and clean linen and towels. We were put on the ground floor, which I found a little disappointing as the view was restricted.... More

We can here yesterday to have some lunch. The setting and the outlook is unreal but it is a shame about the food!! The menu is very limited, there wasn't a lot of choice and nothing came across as appealing. I ordered a sweet potato and red pepper burger. It came out beautifully presented on a wooden board, bun inside... More

Not sure about the other reviewers, but I would go back again without a thought. The four of us had a table booked for 1930 on a Saturday, we were shown to a table in the conservatory with amazing views. Shane our waiter took our drinks order and explained that they had hosted a wedding earlier and it had been... More

I just tried to book a table for an outing with our grandchildren and was told that in the summer they don't take bookings of more than 8 people - we would be ten. What a shame I said - perhaps a table of four and a table of six (and then we would push them together) - but the... More

We recently stayed at the Ness on our wedding night with guests taking the remainder of the rooms. Though the booking was a little complicated as we had reserved the rooms over a year ago and splitting them into peoples names proved tricky, the staff were never the less helpful and we got there eventually. We also dined there with... More

Myself, my husband and 2 friends went to The Ness yesterday for lunch and we were very unimpressed, initially with the service. When we arrived we sat on an empty table as we weren't told anything else and then I had to go a member of staff for menus, she told me she would bring them over. Around 10 minutes... More

I holiday in Teignmouth regularly, and normally come across to The Ness for lunch or dinner as the menu is usually good and the food tasty. However, since the last time I was there, the menu has changed (for the worse) and I think the chef must have changed too. Positives - the staff are still lovely, and the views... More
