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.

Called in based on previous reviews and we love seafood. Everything we expected and more. We both had mussels to start followed by seafood chowder. Both excellent. A delightful little restaurant with welcoming staff. 5 star.

On a Road Trip thro Devon and we stumbled on this amazing restaurant! I started with super fresh mussels in a creamy sauce with fresh bread - some of the best I’ve ever had. My friend had the special fresh mackerel starter which he described as ‘excellent’. He moved onto the Mediterranean stew (mussels, prawns, scallops and white fish) which could have easily fed both of us! I had the fresh crab served in the shell - again superb! It came with a dip, coleslaw and slices of fresh bread. Fabulous! I tried the New Zealand Sauvignon blanc with the starter and a recommended wine with the mains (Piquepoul i think). Both excellent! Don’t recall the names of the warm, friendly and helpful ladies: owner (husband the chef) & friend. Made for a great and memorable lunch. Thank you to all, we’ll be back.

Whitebait as a starter and then seafood chowder and the Mediterranean fish stew. Had to really try hard to eat it slowly as it was so delicious.

My wife and I sat outside on a nice autumn early afternoon and were treated to a superb lunch.The mussels my wife had were not only enormous and succulent but clean as a whistle in a top mariniere sauce. I had a fantastic fish stew.The waitress was called Paula I think and was super friendly and helpful and fun.

Strolled past this hidden gem then came back and a good job I did. Lovely lady serving, happy and friendly, local seafood and all food home cooked. Local beer too boot. Whitebait was lovely but the seafood chowder was exceptional, full of mussels and local fish. Must visit again.

Although the restaurant was inundated on the lunchtime we were there, the staff worked hard to fulfill their orders quickly. I had the Mediterranean fish stew and it was delicious. Friendly staff too.

What a beautiful little find! Don't go anywhere near the front for your food, this place is sublime and the quality of the fish and food is second to none. I really wanted fish and chips, simple as and say this place on the way back to the carpark, had to stop and eat and so glad we did. The quality of food was amazing, locally sourced, great presentation and service impeccable. Also stocks local beers/ales in bottle to support local breweries, a total winner.
