We've been here loads of times and stay in Modbury a couple of times a month. Just to be clear about the environment in the town (and in the bistro), this is a smallish community town far removed from the well trodden tourist spots in Devon. If you're coming here expecting fast food with loads of staff running around fussing after you and your unruly children then you probably won't enjoy it. If you can be a bit more laid back and take things as they come, you'll find that Anabelle and Barry are the perfect hosts. Our experience here has always been good but it's probably fair to say that we're well known by now - however, it was just as good when we first came. Take a bit of interest in your surroundings, try and engage a bit with the people and just enjoy the excellent food. My only tip would be to book and don't expect to squeezed in on the off chance if it's busy, as that's not the way it works here.
Overall, we really like coming here, the food is always consistently good, and we enjoy the atmosphere.
Don't forget to check out Anabelle's paintings on the walls........
