We wanted somewhere that catered for vegans while staying in Lynton. We popped in for lunch and had a falafel in a panini with salad, which was extremely tasty and well put together. We were so impressed we decided to go back in the evening and were not disappointed. Lovely nibbles, roasted chilli broad beans and breads with olive oil... More

We were all totally blown away by the quality of the food in this place! Each course was exceptional and it's really refreshing to find a restaurant that has a selection of distinct and delicious vegetarian options for us too. The value for money is great!

Visiting Exmoor for a couple of nights we unexpectedly discovered a gem ! Wonderful fusion of Middle Eastern influences together with some good traditional British fayre. I ordered courgette fritters as a starter which were accompanied with a fresh pomegranate salad. I then opted for a slow roasted belly pork on a bed of bubble & squeak . Both were... More
