Wonderful views and interior, lackluster service

We stopped here for a tea and scones and for a view of the harbor. The place is wonderfully decorated on the inside, and you can get a very nice view of the harbor and beyond from their yard. The tea and scones were about as good as your typical fare, but the service was lacking. The two young... read more

We went in for a late lunch (Wednesday 8th July) as it was a cold day. There were 2 unaccompanied children sitting at a table chatting in loud voices in a language I didn't recognise, and they didn't seem to have any drinks or food on the table. Strange! There was also a member of staff doing office work on... More

Good fish and chips and vegetarian option (mushroom risotto) served in a great setting, next to the sea, with great views of Lynmouth Harbour.

Not a very pleasant lunch, staff grumpy, food overpriced and greasy, no baby changing facilities, on asking we were just told 'no'- not ' no sorry we don't but you can use another room' or anything similarly helpful, just no, clearly babies aren't that welcome.... We were given the wrong meal after a very long wait which wasn't a problem... More

We visited for lunch. Lovely sunny day and sat in the garden. Went in to order to be told they had had a power cut.....couldn't take our order in the first place because they seemed unable to take a slip of paper into the kitchen. Anyway, finally ordered and waited. They gave us a spoon with our number on. Eventually... More

11 of us stopped for lunch. Sad but true is the fact that whilst the food was satisfactory the customer service was far from it! We appreciated that there had been a problem with the electronic till but to be told they couldn't take a order to the kitchen - not even with pen and paper- was absurd. And then... More

Also at 12 on a Saturday they had run out of thatchers on tap, and apparently other drinks too. We... More

The interior was simple and didn't have the ambiente you would hope to find judging by the outside appearence of the house that fits nicely into the charming village. But it was comfortable after a long strenuous walk. The food was average but the staff was very friendly.

This restaurant has been refurbished and looks absolutely wonderful, unfortunately the food is terrible as is the attitude of the evening waiter, too young for Basil Fawlty you'd think, but at least Basil was amusing. This relatively young man thinks he is amusing but he is arrogant and insulting, the best way for this restaurant to lose money and custom... More
