“Rustic Suppers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

This is the third rustic supper we have attended in the Ocean and it was a step up on the epreviously very good standard. At least 50 people were served effortlessly for dinner and the menu was first class. The staff are particulrly chanrming and helpful. It was a delightful evening. Booking is essential for these evenings.

“Creative and caring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

It's good to be offered menu options that are a little different from the standard fare of most eateries as well as the 'old faithfuls' cooked to perfection. You can tell that the food is cooked on the premises rather than bought in pre-prepared. There is a creativity with the cooking here and a care taken in its preparation and presentation. We have always found Nikki and Robin and all members of the staff to be caring, conscientious and heartfelt in their chosen occupation. Living in Budleigh Salterton as we do, it's our first choice for lunch or light refreshment and our first recommendation.
