We tried this for a last minute family meal and we were very impressed! It's decor is very tasteful and the staff were welcoming. The menu had a lovely selection to choose from and what we all chose we couldn't fault! The portions were plenty we couldn't quite manage desert but they did sound delicious! Now we know it's there we will be definitely going back again and we've already recommended it to friends! There should be more restaurants like this around!!

Had our anniversary meal here. The table had been decorated for us and was a nice touch. Food simply superb. The starters of scallops for me and squid for my wife were just beautiful. The mains of john dory and chicken were, once again, superb. We finished with cheese and port. Just about the best meal we've had in a long time. The staff were attentive and most pleasant. Highly recommended.

Last year my wife and I found the Owl and pussycat whilst having a walk through Teignmouth, although it wasn't open at the time the menu looked really good so we decided to give it a try later that evening. The staff were very friendly and the food tasted as good as the menu looked.
This year we returned and found everything was just as good if not better than the last visit. The family run front of house and waiting staff are very attentive and professional, the scallops are to die for and the venison cooked to perfection and staff names are easy to remember as most of them are
called Adam. Would I recommend this restaurant, most definitely without doubt and will be revisiting again later this year
We may see you there

It's been a while since I last visited this establishment, but the quality of the food and service are just as good as I remembered. I had the scallops to start, which were perfectly cooked and served with a fantastic cauliflower puree and my partner had the soup with truffle oil which he adored. For mains we had the beef fillet and the john dory which were both beautifully presented and the portions are a good size as well which makes a nice change as fine dining establishments can tend to be a little stingy with main courses. Desserts are'nt really my thing, but cheese is, and the cheeseboard here didn't dissappoint (you get your own cheese cutters hidden inside a secret drawer in the base of the cutting board!).
It's not often we head over towards Teignmouth to eat but I promise it won't be too long between visits to this lovely little restaurant in the future.
