Excellent cuisine and fab, friendly staff

My husband and I popped out for Dinner last night. We hadn't booked but the waitress was so friendly and polite and found us a table. We had 5 dishes all were delicious and cooked perfectly. Will definitely be back (soon!) Staff were amazing. Reasonably priced too

Once we'd stuffed our bellies we moved... More

Is this North Devon's best restaurant? It has to be a contender! We ate here last night for our wedding anniversary the food was amazing and the service equally as good the cambers sticks and home baked garlic and cheese bread were real highlights. The atmosphere is great in the restaurant and the drinks choices are great as well with... More

Ordered 2 large paella chorizo and chicken they were served on sandwich plates. Tiny, small portions total rip off. A meal a "nibble" "taster" to put it best What did you slaughter a White Yokohama chicken? seems likley cos each one is worth "£19.75p. I feel BAD for anyone going here and beig delt with way, way OVERPRICED" food.
