“Excellent pub food in Lynton”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stopped here after working up an ENORMOUS appetite walking on Exmoor. It turns out - this is the right place to visit when you're really hungry. I ordered steak burger and chips - the plate was the size of a steering wheel. It's well-made, well-presented pub food, in a pub that boasts a great deal of character - how a pub should be. The staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

“Good food, great beers”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

A decent pub in Lynton - the staff were welcoming, and the food (traditional pub fare) was good (the curry in particular). A nice wood burning stove made it very cosy. Friendly staff (in a range of waistcoats..) served an excellent range of ales. Recommended.

Went in for a pub tea and the barman was really friendly. Would recommend the Ham Egg & Chips - the sticky toffee pudding was great too !!

“Great atmosphere, good local ales”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Taken here by friends for an evening and arrived on a lively and great atmosphere acoustic evening - the "busker" was very good & amusing. All the locals were friendly and took time to chat with us about the area and what to see & do. Didn't eat here on this occasion but hear that the new owners are making good progress. We will have to return during the day to sample their finest

“Comfortable pub, great food”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Went here for dinner while we were staying at a local B&B. the food was simple but very good and portions were absolutely enormous! The landlord was very pleasant and welcoming without being annoyingly pushy in any way. If you want some good value, tasty food and you're feeling very hungry this pub is highly recommended.
