Fish cakes, prawns and sandwiches all excellent. Very nice cheerful waiter. Prices very reasonable... read more

We had a meal in there on Saturday 24th October 2015 and I must say it was the best meal I have had in quite a while. The price was very reasonable too. I would recommend it to anyone.

My friend and I started off having a lovely lunch here and enjoyed it so much we booked an evening meal - booking definitely recommended. Our lunches were beautifully served and good value, and the setting is spot on. It was nice to find somewhere offering something a bit nicer than some of the usual seaside fare. Our evening meal...

Had a meal on Saturday evening and the food and service was excellent. My steak was tender and tasty, my wifes lamb rump steak was so good I had it on our return visit, my wife had tiger prawns with lardons and new potatoes and the prawns were the best I've tasted for a long time. A lot of restaurants... More

We dined here when staying overnight locally ahead of the latest four day section of our SWCP walk, this time in reverse direction to Minehead. They have obviously invested a lot of money in creating this interesting space. The food was pretty good (we both had the crab linguine, which was possibly a little over spiced) and backed up with...

Very, very good food - except that they seem to love star anise (think that was the dominating flavour). Really good and friendly service with an excellent renovation/extension to create a lovely restaurant space.

We were staying at The Woolacombe Bay Hotel, and preferred this brasserie to the more formal Doyles restaurant. We thought the menu was more interesting, and the atmosphere more relaxed. Had two very enjoyable meals here, and the staff were very efficient and friendly.
