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. We also serve a light British Lunch such as Baguettes, pies and Fish and Chips, Roast is always on the menu for a Sunday lunch time. Please always call to check opening times for Sunday evenings Accommodation is also available from May 2015.

Lovely Thai food with a view.

My wife and I were staying at the Pine Lodge Guest house in Lynton and were looking for somewhere for dinner. After reading the reviews we decided to try The Cottage Inn.

We were fortunate to have eaten at Gary & Pam's restaurant in Lynton where Pam is the chef & uses original Thai recipes from her local region. The food was superb & the place had a warm & friendly atmosphere with no effort spared for a truly delightful experience. Would definitely dine there again if we are ever in Devon... More

A pretty country pub has been converted into a very good Thai restaurant. The pub is situated in a wooded valley and overlooks a picturesque little river. We enjoyed some delicious dishes especially the pepper squid in a tamarind sauce and the ginger seafood stir fry. Service was friendly and efficient. The only disappointment was the wine list - no...

This used to be a handy (for us) but average pub serving standard pub grub. After being closed down for a while, we were pleased that its finally been purchased and is open again this time as a Thai restaurant. We visited this evening with our two children and what a difference! The children shared a chicken noodle dish, while... More

A group of 24 of us went here on the first night of a stag do. Everyone absolutely loved the food; really authentic and high quality. The owner Gary was incredibly helpful throughout and even applied for a late night licence so that we could stay there later! Would highly recommend, very, very impressed. Looking forward to going back some... More

We first visited this restaurant on our visit to Lynton last year before being relocated to the Cottage Inn....the food was absolutely amazing, so fresh, and mouthwatering flavours...we knew we were coming back this year and we weren't disappointed with our meal ...just the same outstanding quality and a lovely ambience by the river...highly recommended!

We booked this lovely Thai restaurant for a work party and had a great time. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff brilliant and the food is amazing. Some of the staff had never been before but will definitely return now. Do not miss this.

We went for dinner whilst staying nearby in Lynton. Probably the best Thai food we have ever eaten in the UK. It was once a not very good pub, and the current owners only just moved in; but they have instantly made their mark. Good prices, good beer and good wine prices too. We booked the afternoon of our meal,... More
