My brother is moving to the town soon having just bought a house nearby, as such he decided he wanted to try one of the local eateries to see what was around. When we first arrived we were welcomed warmly and sat at a large table as we were a group of 7, the landlady suggested moving two tables together... More

Extremely friendly welcome with great food using fresh ingredients. This is a unique restaurant a million miles away from the usual experience. The owners will discuss your requirements personally so that you a have a meal specific to you. I highly recommend.

This restaurant is a real find. In a part of Devon with a dearth of quality eateries, to find Frenchs was a stroke of luck. A somewhat 'eclectic' menu merely showcased the ability to deliver a meal to suit all tastes. Oriental influences were particularly impressive. Will definitely return.

We had a delightful three course dinner at this friendly Bistro, with every dish carefully prepared and with a multitude of different tastes perfectly blended to produce an exquisite meal. We will call again.

Found this delightful establishment when visiting Chulmleigh for a dental appointment, so the good lady and me popped in for a light lunch. Sandwich's made with bread from the village bakers, lovely fresh ingredients and excellent friendly service. The evening menu had a varied and different selection of main courses so we will be trying it out one evening very... More

The food was individually prepared, well cooked and very tasty. A good and varied menu. We were well looked after by the proprietor and her husband. We went back for a second visit, which out of a 4 day stay in the area is unusual for us, and were not disappointed. Definitely worth a visit.

A lovely place to eat with a nice menu served by very friendly hosts. The food was good and the service was excellent with concern that it was to our taste. Part of the experience was the somewhat impression that comes with a chaotic ambiance which I enjoyed. A little more sauce would have helped
