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.

Fabulous Tasty Food

The food here is very tasty. Can highly recommend the crab cakes and the squid. My husband had the Pennang and I had the Red Thai curry - divine. You get plenty of meat and lots of tasty sauce. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Staying as we were in Lynton, this was a 20 minute walk along a very picturesque pathway. The Cottage Inn is a lovely country Pub with a warm and friendly welcome. The Nartnapa Restaurant is within the pub. I believe the food is cooked by the owners wife who is from Thailand so the food is authentic Thai. We booked... More

The Thai food is authentic, tasty and well presented and of a high quality. Most unusual to find such a restaurant in a local inn.

We came here the other day after passing it on the way to lynmouth. The food was delicious and better thai food than anywhere near us in North London! We had 3 different dishes and we were all very happy with our food. My mum is a vegetarian and there were many options for her. Highly recommended!

Ate here when staying across the road at Jay's Cottage. Lovely Thai restaurant within the pub which has great potential. Good luck to the lovely owners with their new venture.

Nartnapa does not have any vegetarian food on its menu but they say they will cook any of their meat dishes without neat. Unfortunately if they do this they still charge meat prices! Although the food was delicious we felt we paid too much for a vegetarian meal and will not be going back.

We had the set meal a - not something we often do but it seemed and was extremely good value for the quality and quantity of food which was very impressive - fresh ingredients including freshly mixed spices.
