A most enjoyable lunch - the seafood platter for two to share with a nice bottle of white to accompany it. A great selection of seafood and there was certainly more than enough for two. There was also an abundance of bread to go with...More

It excels: location, charm, drinks, food and service. It has atmosphere and history and an interior that shows that to the full. In summer the outside area overlooking the harbour is a perfect place to find a perch in the sun and have a drink....More

The Fish and Chips cost over £14, whilst the fish in batter was cooked OK, the chips were a sorry sight. I think the local chippy would have been a better bet.

We had a wonderful meal, including amuse bouche, and would highly recommend the steak and fish main courses. The service was excellent and the atmosphere all round very convivial and welcoming.More

Whilst staying in Lynmouth we called here most nights for a drink and found a lively/busy pub/hotel offering good ales and both a restaurant and bar menu. Booking required for the restaurant as itsa poular location.

Had our last evening meal of our holiday here and it didn't disappoint. Just looks like a typical village pub from the outside but tastefully decorated to fine dining standards inside. The food was lovely and staff very attentive.

A beautiful place located on the harbour in Lynmouth. We’ve eaten here on two occasions and both times the food has been amazing. What stood out for me is the waitresses. They were outstanding. So professional, but always so helpful and friendly too. Definitely recommend.More
