I had asparagus with poached egg for starter which was ok. The egg was a bit watery which detracted from the dish. For my main I had the turbot... More

Fish cakes to start were excellent and very tasty. My wife had steak for main course and I had surf and turf. Lobster was fantastic but my medium to rare steak was medium at best if not well done. Still tasty but not as ordered. Chocolate desert with hot and cold was fantastic. Despite the steak we would definitely return.

We have just had an amazing meal at this family run restaurant, this has to be the best one in Devon with great food, atmosphere and service and if you are heading this way you must check this one out and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
