This is a most delightful Thai restaurant set in a lovely location by the scenic river Lyn. Staff so accommodating (we wanted so vary the dishes to vegetarian) to cater for our needs. Some of the best Thai food you'll ever eat. Easily the best place to eat in Lynton and Lynmouth.

This turned out to be a real find. The owners of the restaurant are on site and really engage with the customers. The food was fresh and really tasty, nothing was too much trouble. We sat at a table overlooking the river. Stunning location and views. Fantastic place to eat.

We are great fans of Thai cuisine and try to seek out a Thai restaurant wherever we go. This is, most definitely, one of the best. Our starters and main meals tasted fresh and authentic. The flavours were superb.

We visited for dinner on a Thursday night and we were very impressed. Friendly staff and great menu choice. Dishes were full of flavour and clean tasting and we would recommend the Prosecco too (we had a whole bottle).

My wife and I visited Nartnapa Thai on 15th June for dinner as an Anniversary treat and it was truly excellent. We're regular visitors to Lynton and always make a point of eating here as the food is so good. You get a very friendly welcome, excellent (but not intrusive) service and helpful advice as to dish choices, should it... More

The Cottage Inn is a family run public house on the fringe of Lynton and lynmouth , we stock a good range of well kept real ales, ciders, lagers , spirits and wines. The inn is positioned along Lynbridge and is overlooking a river, this can be taken advantage of most by sitting in our beer garden or booking a table in our riverside restaurant. Our riverside restaurant is home to Nartnapa Thai Kitchen, this is Thai food cooked in a rustic way, using fresh ingredients from local suppliers, we do not view ourselves as fine dining specialists, and do not have a huge menu due to the chefs dedication to keeping every meal fresh to order but if you do fancy some fresh well flavoured meals then perhaps this is the place for you. From Tuesday to Saturday lunch times we run a small Thai Lunch Menu from 12-3.30 Please always call to check opening times for Sunday evenings Accommodation is also available from May 2015.
