Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fabulous evening meal at Pattard. The food was absolutely incredible! The presentation was perfect for sharing which was fab, as both the beef and duck were yummy! Fabulous service, beautiful restaurant, would happily give 10 stars.

This was our second visit to this out of the way, fine dining, resturant. We were originally recommended it by friends. We do eat out often, not regularly fine dinning though. About twice a year, finances allowing. The restaurant has exceptional wines apparently, I dont...drink alcohol so cant really comment on the wines. The previous visit, the food had been exceptionally good, so we were excited to visit for a special Valentine's 6 course tasting menu, with a few added surprises, along the way..... On arrival we noted that they had crisp white tablecloths, this made an obvious improvement to the look, previous visit had no tablecloths. The table had a lovely wrapped red rose on it, beautifully presented menu, but the candle not lit. The food was beautifully presented, as it was previously, and for the main part absolutely delicious. The exception for me, was the duck. I appreciate that chefs like to serve duck rare, but this was so rare that I found it almost gelatinous. I did try to eat it, but eventually gave it to hubby. He did eat it (he will eat anything) but even he did commented on its texture..... I do realise that, that is our opinion, and alI subject to personal tastes. ( I do believe one customer requested something to be cooked a little more, but I'm not sure if it was the duck). We were a little dissappinted with the advertised 'little surprises, along the way' The only thing served, not on the menu, was a pallet cleansing Blackberry sorbet. It was delightful, but was the only surprise.......lastly, I would add that perhaps some of the tableware should be reviewed. Some plates seem to have a textured surface, which produces a terrible scraping sound, quite off putting. Minor criticisms, I know..... The restaurant has only been open since July 2023, and it is a very young couple cooking. The kitchen is open, so you can see them at work. They use locally sourced produce, which is a lovely concept. The service is really excellent too . Worth a visit for the experience of fine dinning, and if you like your wines, although, It is an expensive experience. I wish them every success, I'm sure that they will do brilliantly.More

A rather austere barn of a room, probably because we visited on an out of season Thursday early evening and were the sole diners. Personable young owners - he an attentive but not obsequious front of house, and his partner an unsung genius in the...kitchen. The food was beautifully cooked and presented; I've literally, in the truest sense of the word, had no better at top Michelin starred restaurants at triple or quadruple the price. Although it's certainly not cheap, the value for money cannot be underestimated; in the region of £90 for two courses for two people, including two large glasses of excellent wine. Difficult to locate, and the signage was confusing - at least to this septuagenarian - but definitely worth the effort. I cannot recommend this establishment too highly.More

Family and I visited this wonderful restaurant as recommendation from our hosts while visiting over the festive period. Pattard is a beautifully styled restaurant focussed on local, seasonal produce and the execution of their food is of the highest standard. I tip my hat to...the couple that run the restaurant… great front of house, exceptional cooking.. had the crab ravioli followed by the rump of beef..and was some of the best food I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating… the family had a truly wonderful evening. If you are ever in the Hartland Peninsula.. you absolutely MUST visit Pattard!More

Pattards is what I would call a high end restaurant in the most unexpected of places. Although just outside of the small town of Hartland, the narrow lanes leading there make it feel otherworldly. The food really was fantastic. It was hard to choose what...to have from the seasonal menu as each item sounded so good. We went for pork and duck as our mains and both were delicious. The desserts were also mouthwatering. We really wish the talented and friendly couple running Pattards every success. They deserve it.More

Visited for Sunday lunch so had the chance to appreciate the fabulous roasts on offer. This restaurant really is tucked away out of sight, but most certainly not out of mind. Run by a young couple the atmosphere is friendly and informal and the food...is simply excellent. The only downside for us was that the restaurant is not dog-friendly. I am sure that they would be friendly to dogs.... but they have decided not to admit them. A shame - but our fault for not having checked beforehand.More

This restaurant is out of this world, just recently taken over by a young couple, we heard about this place and can say anyone who visits won’t be disappointed. The food was unbelievably amazing, I had a steak which was cooked to perfection and the...pudding was to die for, the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and a great example of really fine dining at a reasonable price. Looking forward to a return visit when down that way again.More
