Had a late lunch on a windy afternoon. Window seat with a great view. Wasn’t too hungry so just had the prawn & crayfish starter. Not too much in the way of crayfish but I’ve never seen so many prawns in a prawn cocktail. Glad...More

Rack of ribs were tough and did not fall off the bone, venison extremely undercooked , chewy, tasteless and cut in big chunks not thinly sliced as expected... overall very bland and disappointing!

Visited for Sunday lunch. Great food and the views are fantastic. Staff are great and there is a small arcade downstairs for the kids to play in.

We came here as a group and all had a really good time. Food was great and the prices we're fair for the good portions we got! The mussels in tomato and Chorizo was really good!

There's no doubting the location, lovely views of Bideford Bay/Bristol Channel but in respect of the main criteria, so so. The spacious interior, mid-December, was pleasant enough and the service was good, but food was really only average, albeit nicely presented. All but one of...More
