I came here just on the off chance and always said we would try. The place inside is amazing and beautiful all the art on the ceilings is what is the most amazing thing about this place. The food is nice but it isn't what you would expect looking from the outside. It is not somewhere I would return in... More

We dropped in for a drink while in the high street. Newly refurbished to a high standard, this was a lovely place to spend the evening. They serve food and cocktails and have a new bar lounge. Drop in and see for yourself

We visited after going for a meal elsewhere in Barnstaple. The staff were very friendly and served our drinks to the table. Lovely additional touches to the drinks, fairly reasonable prices too. Nice clean bar with good decor and comfy seating.

We had booked the Vault Room for a private birthday party for 16 ladies to attend. The room had been decorated but the organizer of the party and when we arrived it was perfect, an absolutely perfect setting for the nights celebrations. We had pre-ordered our choices of food from the party menu the week before so we all knew... More

Lovely food and good quick service. Cocktails were very good. Lighting is a bit pink and the music was a little loud for my tastes but not a bad place for a meal. Probably best for larger groups.

The glorious ornate plasterwork ceiling will take your breath away. It dates back to 1620 and in more recent times this wonderful building was a high street bank.
