I was interested to see that several reviews refer to orders being lost between till and kitchen. This happened to me as well, but I thought it was a one off!

Just wanted a drink in the late afternoon. Ordered two drinks and proffered the correct amount, all in change, with an apology for the coins. Did state the amount was correct to be told it was JUST correct, as though I should have included a tip. Whilst having our drink, the waitress then started hoovering near our table. Not impressed...

Arrived late in Lynmouth so were looking for somewhere to eat at 8pm on a Friday night. The service was very good - we were made to feel very welcome - the restaurant area was moderately full but they gave us one of the last tables. The menu offered a good range and the amount of food served matched with... More

very overpriced with terrible service. £5.25 for a tiny Cornish Pasty and a lettuce leaf! They actually call it a Steak Pasty but it's mostly potato. They were very quiet but still insisted on us giving them a table number and then they forgot to put the order through but no apology!!

I visited the rock house after enjoying a fantastic afternoon on the putting green (highly recommend) I was hoping to get a crem tea and expectations were high after seeing the signs for "fresh scones" outside. After waking in I had to wait about five minutes or so to be served while the staff finished their conversation. I was greeted... More

Good food, amusing staff and good location. Didnt like the 'Restaurant' ambience - too formal but enjoyed eating outside and inside next to the bar.
