“Book early to avoid dissapointment!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We liked this small restaurant as it served excellent tasty and reasonably priced food that was a bit different from the others in Lynton & Lynmouth. Staff were charming, efficient and very polite. They seem to take delight from the interesting dishes they serve and genuinely welcome the praise. This is a very popular place to eat and is always fully booked so make sure you plan your visit in advance.

“3 visits”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

We have recently returned from a break in Lynton . We had dinner at The Oak Room three times while we were there, the food is excellent , the wide variety of tapas is great as it's a good excuse to return to try new dishes that we haven't tried before . The main courses are also very good , and well worth trying. The Spanish bread and butter pudding is my favourite dessert ever!

The staff are all very welcoming and offer advice on dishes too. One of the ladies remembered us from holidays last year and the year before , which was really nice.

“Excellent quality and imaginative tapas. Friendly efficient service.”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We were walking around Lynton looking for somewhere suitable for lunch and dropped in to The Oak Room. The tapas menu looked interesting and would be fine for a light lunch. The quality of the preparation is excellent and the tapas selection rather imaginative. Not standard Spanish but expect something different and individual. The lunch was so good we booked for the next evening for dinner. Stand-out dishes include anchovy bruschetta with tomato sorbet; scallop flan with bisque and a variant on Devon cream tea of Earl Grey ice cream, strawberry cheesecake on scone base and basil pannacotta. Delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. It does appear to be busy on evening so I would recommend booking in advance. Portions are appropriately tapas sized so you'll need 3 or possibly 4 or pudding. Recommended.
