We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at The Vanilla Pod. Both of us found all courses delicious, with an interesting variety of dishes. The service was polite and prompt. The atmosphere pleasant. Excellent quality food, at a reasonable price. We would definitely recommend and return.

We had a delightful evening at this great resturant. We had a table booked for six on the evening of 12 September. We were promptly served by a charming young lady who remained attentive through out and contributed to a most enjoyable evening. Four of us ordered steak each having a different requirement as to how it was cooked. All... More

Our party of 11 was booked in for Sept 11th. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was very friendly and efficient and coped with good humour as our Group worked out who owed what for their share of the meal! It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and a lovely way to end our our annual gathering. We would... More

While staying in Lynton we booked a table at the Vanilla Pod - the food was outstanding, full of flavour. It had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. We would definitely go back there and also recommend it to anyone wanting a top class meal.

We called in early on a Friday evening in the peak season and were lucky enough to get a table, before it filled up. Menu was good with some interesting items. Staff were attentive despite being busy. Food was very good, and the puddings in particular were superb. We will certainly return when next in Lynton/Lynmouth area.

We had the sea bass and the taste was excellent. Sweets were both good too as was the wine. Seating arrangements were well done as they allowed privacy and it had a nice ambience and good music. We would definitely return because the food was top class but waiting staff were very stressed , maybe short of staff that night.

A really relaxed meal out with fantastic food. A great choice of different dishes that you wouldn't think to cook at home and all delicious.Something for everyone, from healthy to indulgent. We found it by accident one lunch time where they were happy to mix up their breakfast, lunch and dinner menu for us. We went back for dinner the... More

We were very fortunate that we hadn't booked and that they had just had a cancellation as we got there so we was able to get a table at this already packed restaurant. Food was extremely tasty and plenty of it, and priced very reasonably. All i can suggest is that if you are planning to eat there, then book... More

We only had a sandwich here but it was by far the best quality sandwich we had had, loaded with food. From the outside it does not look very inviting but don't be out off as once inside it's well decorated and clean and whilst we didn't have cakes they looked fantastic. The menu is extensive and the staff friendly.
