“Huge Portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We called in this tucked away place for lunch after visiting Barnstaple Pannier Market. The inside and outside was lovely and clean. The service was good and the portion sizes were huge, couldn't finish it all.

“Love the courtyard great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have eaten here on numerous occasions and had breakfast, lunch and dropped in for coffee. You always feel welcome d unrushed and the staff are attentive and froendly. I love coming here as it is has a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting a good eatery in Barnstaple. Good food, good wine list and great coffee and cake. Hidden away down a back street in town means its nice and central without the hustle and bustle of shoppers which is perfect especially if you take advantage of their outside seating!

“bad coffee”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

Reasonable lunch but poor service due to only one person covering the tables on a busy Friday, finished lunch with possibly the worst tasting coffee i have ever experienced. Unfortunately due to the late arrival of the food I didn't have time to send the coffee back. I'm sure if the staffing was improved the rating would be much higher. (Lunch for 4 on 8/3/14)

“Lovely service and lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

An extremely lovely place to go. Very kid and baby friendly. The manager even offered to hold my baby while I ate my lunch and opened up both doors so I could get the pram out. Would recommend and my lunch was very lovely too. Brilliant service. Thank you so much for a lovely lunch.

“Perfect Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

On a wet and miserable day in Barnstaple this was the perfect port in a storm! The welcome was friendly and sincere, the food was delicious, well presented and very reasonably priced. The service was exemplary. We will definitely be going back.
