VP has an interesting menu, far different than most other restaurants in the area, and the preparation was quit good. Only drag was the service was a little slow. Otherwise, top rate.

Four of us ordered steak each having a different requirement as to how it was cooked. All... 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.
