We went one evening without a booking, and although fully booked, they allowed us to come in early to fit us in - impressed straight away. The staff were delightful and the food - where can I start! I ordered 3 starters as my main course as I couldn't decide what I wanted, my companions ordered main courses. All the meals were SO tasty, I enjoyed my starters so much, I couldn't stop praising the chef. The deserts were equally impressive. Everything was obviously home made and made with care.
I can't believe that people have criticised that they couldn't get a table, how crass to then give a 'poor' rating. It is a fantastic restaurant, of course they may be full!! I have also seen criticism that it is expensive - I have to disagree! This is Croyde, it's on a par with Georgeham and Woolacombe - these are expensive areas, but in this premises, at least you get what you pay for.
I made sure I told the staff how brilliant I thought the food was, something we forget to do. I would have been equally honest if I found them lacking. Any establishment needs feedback, but I think people need to be realistic too. Quality comes at a price.
