“A poor offering”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

I really do not like giving any place i eat a low score like this but sadly although the staff were very friendly and attentive,that is where the praise ends.We ordered the pulled pork with saute potatoes,the pork(as it can be)was very fatty and the potatoes were more like boiled/steamed with their skins on.My wife left most of hers and i ate half of mine only as i was so hungry.The location is great and the place with being totally gutted and refurbished could be a little gold mine.Not one of our better meals.visited august 18th 2014

“Great meals at old coach house lynton”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Having been unable to get an evening meal at any other local eatery due to early closing throughout lynmouth. We opted for lynton and had excellent meal, in lovely atmosphere, with good service and value. Returned following evening for another great experience.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We sampled the roast dinners on a Sunday. Just not up to scratch. Dry chicken, heavy Yorkshire puddings, sticky gravy. Friendly staff but we obviously chose the wrong meals.

“Bad day?”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Rainy afternoon in the pretty Exmoor village of Lynton and thought we should try one of the old fashioned looking tea shops for lunch. Not one of my best ideas. It may have just been a bad day for the staff but nothing seemed to go right - perhaps a lesson in how not to run a cafe?
Dirty dishes not cleared from table before order taken, waitress not really sure what was going on with orders - nor did anyone else it seems, disappointing Devon pasty, refurb. clearly overdue, order slip lost when it came to pay, mystery tour to the outside toilet with a handy window for others to peek in!

“Salads very good value. Kids meals could be better.”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I don't eat bread or potatoes so opted for the salad and asked if we could swap the potatoes and bread for coleslaw, which they did with pleasure. We were so full - after a salad! Loads of meat, lovely salad mix and dressing.
Kids meals were as they are most places. I wish they could have benefitted from the home cooked food here!
