“Excellent food from a little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We had been meaning to visit this restaurant for a while and were delighted when we could get in on a Saturday night. Despite not warning them that one of us was a ceoliac they were very obliging. This is a small restaurant and the food is excellent and not overpriced.

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review about us. It is helpful if dietary requirements are mentioned when booking so we are able to plan a menu more accurately for the customer.

“Pearl wedding anniversary meal - "Perfect",”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

A friendly,warm welcome from Naomi.Such a relaxing, comfortable restaurant.A good balanced variation of dishes to choose from. The food was very well presented, cooked to perfection with an excellent combination of flavours and textures.
Naomi's recommendation of Linda's B&B complimented the weekend in North Devon.
Regretfully it has taken us twelve years to visit "Memories",hopefully the next reservation will be within twelve months. Many thanks.

“Delightful, Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

What a lovely restaurant. A very attentive waitress, who was friendly and knowledgable. The food was very well presented, tasted beautiful, cooked to perfection. I liked the pork it was cooked how I liked it. The men had steaks wow they looked and tasted so yummy. We will be recommending this restaurant to everyone. We have a hair salon in the family and the conversations with clients is always about local restaurants. Memories will be top of our list, value for money, oh yes.

“Fantastic wedding anniversary meal - could be the first of a new tradition?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

My husband and I wanted to visit a restaurant for our wedding anniversary as we would usually eat in a local pub, but fancied a bit of a celebration. My parents often visit Memories and always ranted about how fabulous it was so we thought we would give it a try - how pleased are we that we did!!!
The food was fabulous - we enjoyed each of the 3 courses - some light and flavoursome but delicate in taste and others more punchy with the flavours.
It was good value too - 3 courses with a bottle of rose (which has now become my favourite vino I might add) came to £69.
We will definately be returning - thank you for making our special day so enjoyable!

“"Tounge tingleing experience"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This was our first time eating at Memories, i don't know why we have'nt been before. We had a lovely welcome from owner Naomi and was very friendly. The food was so tasty and very well presented. We liked all of it and would be going back. Well worth a visit although you do have to book but you would'nt be disappointed.
