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.

This was our first visit booked for three and what a great surprise. The staff were charming and the food was so delicious. The steak was so beautifully cooked and tasted wonderful. We were all happy with all of our three courses and the wine, which was very reasonable, was very much up to scratch. Well done La Petite Bouchee and thank you.

Thank you so much for another lovely evening. This was our 6th visit and this time for our wedding anniversary. Pre-ordering our food is an excellent idea, it gives time to make a proper choice and ensures no wasted food. We loved our choices of the pulled jack fruit starter (the best that I have ever had), the red mullet main course was delicious and our desserts - the vegan sticky toffee pudding and the sticky toffee apple pudding were sublime! Thank you.

I booked La Petite Bouchée a while ago to cook a meal for four for a special occasion and admit to being anxious about having someone using my kitchen in my presence. I needn’t have worried, Anita-Clare arrived armed with a small, cool box-cum-flight bag and swept in like a culinary version of Mary Poppins. Not being a great fan of formality, I had expressly asked for a casual and informal approach, Anita-Clare prepped, cooked, served and removed the most incredible food in an unobtrusive and relaxed fashion. I am dairy-free and hate to ask for special treatment on my behalf but my requests were very well met; every course was dairy-free however, nobody would be able to tell ingredients had been swapped out - from start, to finish the meal was utterly fantastic. Everything was spot on. Taking inspiration from suggested likes and dislikes Anita-Clare had carefully selected three courses of delicious food; prawn and scallop rillettes, duck breast on roti and lemon cheesecake, as with every skilled craftsman the entire thing seemed to be effortlessly executed, but the results were superb! My concern about formality was unfounded, the chef put us all at ease, we felt pampered and very spoilt. At the end of the meal, the kitchen was cleaned, the washing up done, Mary Poppins took her bag and left four very happy customers. Thank you Anita-Clare, you’re a complete star!

Claire, wow. Thank you so so much. It was a joy and an honour to cook for you all. Thank you for your generous hospitality. Making things dairy-free is fun and fuels my creativity. I love a challenge and it is absolutely no problem whatsoever. I look forward to cooking you further dairy free meals in the years to come. ❤️

I’ve wanted to visit LPB for about 4 years but the stars had never aligned then covid happened and scuppered my plans. I was sincerely hoping that my long awaited supper plans weren’t like that youth club disco snog with the chap you’d fancied all year but would turn out to be nothing like you’d thought!!! Turns out that on this occasion I need not have worried and it was better than expected - is that actually. We’d had a pretty rubbish week with one thing or another but our Friday night supper restored our faith that there was some little pockets of light in the world. The food of was to die for thanks A-C, the service was just perfect, champagne cocktail perfectly executed and the setting left us pinching each other cheeks!

Oh boy, what can I say. I held a dinner party for my husbands special birthday and Anita Claire came to cook the meal. The food was out of this world, clean plates indicated everyone thought the same. Anita Claire made it so special, all the cooking done AND she cleared up……….oh joy oh rapture! Every course was cooked with love and we ate it with love. A super super evening thanks to a dedicated talented chef. Thank you so much will certainly do this again very soon.

This was our first visit to La Petite Bouchee and will certainly not be our last. On arrival we were warmly greeting by the young waitress, followed by the chef/patron who remembered we'd not long moved to the area. All our food was excellent, my steak was cooked perfectly (I like it rare) and was melt in the mouth. My husband loved his moules main his only regret being he didn't have any bread to mop up with but he managed with a spoon. All in all, it was a lovely evening with a relaxed intimate atmosphere - it's always a good sign when all the guests end the evening chatting.

Thank you so much for your very generous review. It was a pleasure to welcome you both. On the subject of bread. We always used to put bread on the tables each week and 90% of it was thrown away. This is the second bread comment in a matter of weeks so it might be worth revisiting. Thanks so much for the prompt. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Kindest A-C

Been a while trying to get a table with our friends here (bookings only) but we got one. Easy to find in the town and old French van out front a major give away. Quirky entrance way and into a lovely dining room in a private house...brilliant. Pre booked and food was outstanding... French onion soup AMAZING as was Tomato Tart tatin. Chicken and leek pies/moules and steak fries - perfect food finished off with beautiful creme Brulee. Loved the attention to detail - flowers on plates divine. Yes we pigged and did a cheese board too. Just perfect end to a lovely day in Mid Devon

Why wait for Friday or Saturday? Get Anita to come to you! We were in the area for only a few days and, having read the reviews, were gutted we couldn't eat at L.P.B. I contacted Anita to see if she would consider coming over to ours and she couldn't do enough to help. She was responsive with her communication, turned up EXACTLY when she said she would, prepped everything in the kitchen, wouldn't let us lift a finger and produced the BEST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE EVER in our own kitchen. Each course was described, served and cleared with such professionalism, it made us feel very special. Once everything is served, but only then (so professional), you might, if you're lucky, get Anita to sit down with you for a glass of wine to talk about her amazing story and how she became so passionate about food. And, at the end of the evening, she leaves everything so spotless, it's like she wasn't even there! If you want to spoil yourself, this is the way to do it. Such quality, such value and such an experience! Thank you Anita for making it such a lovely evening!

what can i say but how happy were we to find this unbelievable gem of a restaurant. Cozy and vibrant a perfect blend. food was top top drawer and the service impeccable but personal touches with a chat to the chef during and after the meal . we loved it so much we've decided to take a mini detour / additional stopover to visit again. if you live with an hour of La Petite Bouchee i would definitely try and visit once a month.!!!

We are lucky enough to live locally to this restaurant and our third visit was fab again. Croquille st jacques was delicious, followed by plump juicy sweet mussels, the walnut tart divine - and the cheese….we’ll go try for yourself! You won’t be disappointed. Lovey to chat to chef owner Anita-Claire and the team too.

We ate here last night and the food was sensational. Amazing sized portions the coquille st jacques was the best I’d eaten and my chicken in mustard sensational my husband had the monk fish which tasted so light and cooked to perfection. We ate the incredibly delicious and sweet walnut tart followed by a cheese board like no other. The staff were super friends and Anita and welcomed us all she felt like an old friend even though we’d just met. This isn’t your usual restaurant this is Anitas restaurant and it’s oozes that. It’s unique and quirky and the food speaks for it self. Parking was easy and the witheridge square was quaint with a proper pub that we visted for a drink before.

It is not our first visit so I am well overdue for writing a review. As always we had a lovely time and the food was delicious. We opted for mussels this time and were not disappointed, plus the walnut tart with ice-cream was simply fabulous! We love it here and will be back!

Our daughter and family moved three years ago and have spoken about the restaurant since their first visit, travel restrictions now lifted allowed us to confirm everything we had been told. Saturday evening and the restaurant was full of lovely people. Superb service from two lovely young people, nothing to much trouble, we all had different meals and tried each one x everything was glorious, well cooked and presented. The gin and tonic sorbet was fab too. I finished my meal believe it or not with a mug of steaming hot tea, and a chat with the owner/ chef, Anita,if you get the opportunity please visit.
