“If you like weird try this”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

Faulty Towers meets Crossroads meets The Rocky Horror Picture Showroom, this place is seriously weird. The food is ok, not refined but worked at. The service is very foreign, Irish, Scottish and Transalvanian, the dining room cold and lifeless and the bar somewhere to smoke an opium pipe. The toilets are 1975 British Rail and Mr Millars gin is sweet and served instead of any decent gin. It is a long walk up, a long walk down but far preferable to staying there. Run Janet.......

“Fantastic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Love the decor and the furnishings......top notch. Food bit basic although we only had the terrace menu. However, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

“Pretty decent food - great views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

We sat in the restaurant one evening and had the full 3 courses. Started with an amuse-bouche of a battered prawn. Starter of pate was superb if a bit on the large size. Wifes seafood starter of crab, salmon, prawn was lovely. My main of pork belly and pork cheek had the most perfectly crisp crackling. Wife's fillet of beef was ok. We shared a platter of local cheeses which I thought were tasty. Wine list is simple but with some interesting choices from around the World. The New Zealand sauvignon blanc was excellent. The French red less so! The staff are perfectly nice but service was terribly slow - half an hour for a drink to arrive, an hour for the starter. It needs better supervision. We also had a dinner on the brilliant terrace with its stunning view over Lynmouth. The terrace menu is very good value and the food as above.

“Fantastic views, eat at sunset.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Well worth a visit on a good day. Sit on the terrace and enjoy the amazing views, especially at sunset. The food ffrom the Terrace Bar is tasty and good value. Have also tried the Sunday lunches and can thoroughly recommend them. Price of wine is a bit steep, but the Cornish lager is a better option. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, make one feel very welcome.
I'm looking forward to trying the cinema nights: meal and a film for a set price.
