We visit Devon every few months and never miss going to Memories Bistro, one of the best we have ever been to. Food fabulous and the hosts welcoming and they ensure you never leave disappointed. Worth the long trip from Lincolnshire.

This was the first time we visited the restaurant and it certainly won't be our last... The welcome from Hazel was very inviting... The choice of food on the menu was varied, and great value for the money! We thoroughly enjoyed eating our three course meal, especially our main fish course dish.. Gordon the chef certainly didn't disappoint us! Look... More

Having holidayed nearby last year and been unable to book to go here once we had arrived, I booked 4 weeks in advance! Hazel rang to check we had arrived safely and were still going beforehand - it is a small restaurant but we were still very impressed to be greeted by name as we came through the door. Hazel... More

This was my second time at this wonderful little bistro, and I was amazed that it was even better than the first time. Why...???...because Gordon has now switched all of his home made sauces to gluten-free! Apparently he's also going to make some gluten-free sticky toffee puddings...can't wait to go back and try those! This time I started with scallops... More

This is really such a fabulous small place, with great well cooked food. Hazel is always so welcoming and her husband is busy in the kitchen cooking. Only opens Fri and Sat and has limited number of tables, so you have to ensure you book well in advance. We just love coming here, as we know we will g great... More

This was our first visit and we went with friends who have been there before. Hazel does a fantastic job keeping the food and drinks coming. Gordon, we did not see, but he obviously works just as hard in the kitchen. His cooking skills are second to none. The four of us mostly chose different things from the menu and... More
