“Beautiful little restaurant with wonderful food, give it a try”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great choice of food in stylish intimate restaurant. Shame they didn't have many diners as this place is well worth visiting. We enjoyed a three course meal which I finished with some local cheeses & my husband has found a new favourite dessert -affragato! Would definitely go back.

“Best Coffee”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This did the best coffee in Lynton or Lynmouth, and the carrot and cheese cake were great too. Will definitely be going again on our next visit.

“Good food but slightly off-peak”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Ambience was good, most tables taken. Food was fine however mistakes were made such as overcooking the trout and serving the dish lukewarm... Starter of crab ravioli was very nice. Cheese portions were HUGE far too big for one person. Service was good, friendly.

“Best restaurant in Lynton”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Good, friendly service. Excellent food. The Butternut Squash pate with Devon Blue was fantastic! Great mushroom risotto! The atmosphere is fairly intimate, in a good way. Cozy and welcoming. We'll be back again, many times over.
