The Cottage Inn is a family run public house on the fringe of Lynton and lynmouth , we stock a good range of well kept real ales, ciders, lagers , spirits and wines. The inn is positioned along Lynbridge and is overlooking a river, this can be taken advantage of most by sitting in our beer garden or booking a table in our riverside restaurant. Our riverside restaurant is home to Nartnapa Thai Kitchen, this is Thai food cooked in a rustic way, using fresh ingredients from local suppliers, we do not view ourselves as fine dining specialists, and do not have a huge menu due to the chefs dedication to keeping every meal fresh to order but if you do fancy some fresh well flavoured meals then perhaps this is the place for you. From Tuesday to Saturday lunch times we run a small Thai Lunch Menu from 12-3.30 Please always call to check opening times for Sunday evenings Accommodation is also available from May 2015.

Authentic Thai food

On the recommendation of our B&B host, we tried Nartnapa @Cottage Inn. The kitchen was helmed by Nartnapa herself (from Thailand). Coming from Singapore and having visited Thailand many times, we were pretty familiar with Thai cuisine and eager to try. After tasting the food at Nartnapa, we felt... read more

Nartnapa serves lush Thai dishes - really tasty. Some dishes are quite hot (e.g., pennang curry - using coconut cream, peanuts), while others were mildly hot (red curry with fruit/veg). The seafood tom yum soup was delicious and warming - can be eaten as a starter or a main, with an order of side noodles. A little pricey, but it's... More

As this hotel was under new management we booked a weekend break with friends. The hotel has been nicely refurbished. The rooms are comfortable and clean. A nice surprise was that there was a plentiful supply of tea and coffee. We ate in the Thai restaurant on our first evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff and management are friendly... More

We stayed at The Cottage Inn for two nights and decided to eat in the Thai restaurant on the first night. We had a set menu for 2. The food was wonderful, plentiful and delicious. All fresh ingredients served hot, varying degrees of spice with so much flavour. This family run business is a credit to them not only quality... More

A very friendly family-run Inn that serves excellent, home-cooked Thai food, and an English Roast on Sundays - in addition to drinks, of course. We have eaten here on a number of occasions. A wonderful location next to the river and a good place to start or finish a walk to Watersmeet, Lynmouth or Barbrook etc.

Was recommended this place by a friend, wanted to dine before cinema date in Lynmouth. Very accommodating and got us in/out in short time. Food was very tasty, nice atmosphere and dining area. Will be back soon, overall great dining experience.

Came here with my family as my daughter lives locally. Have been here for roast previously (very very good) but this is the first time we'd been here for thai. The food was beautiful, great portions, fresh, and great service. We shall be back. Please go here and try them out!!! And nice port!!
