Tried to get a booking last min in a few places in the area and found that unless you book weeks in advance your unlucky, well no worries here. Booked a large table, got offered the usual full menu and the option of a Sunday carvary...brilliant! The portion sizes are enormous and just the ticket for a lazy Sunday afternoon...not... More

We booked our table in advance as this is a very popular restaurant. We were a party of 7. 4 adults, 3 children 11,7 and 1. Food choice was excellent, our son is autistic and very fussy with his food. His reqirements were catered for very easily by the staff, to which we thank you for. Again nothing to complain... More

We went for lunch on very blustery day as the view of the sea is so amazing. The restaurant was nearly full but the service was still very prompt and all the staff were very friendly as usual. My husband had fish, chips and peas, the fish was very good with very tasty batter but the chips tasted re- heated... More

Just to say - what a great place - visit and you will see what a great place to be at. Stayed in a Chalet opposite and wined and dined at The Pier House. It will be a regular haunt or mine when i move to Bideford to live in the spring. Rob Leslie

We visited over the New Year period on several occasions because we loved it so much. Excellent location with lovely view. It was warm and welcoming, the food and drink was excellent and the service was outstanding. The Braddick family know how to train their staff - every member seemed to care - this really was the most outstanding aspect... More

Booked in for lunch, it was very busy. The food was very nice. Good size portions, very tasty. The waiting staff were friendly and polite. However the service was slow but again they were very busy. Maybe it would be better service on a quieter day? Had to ask for the bill twice which was annoying. Special mention of the... More

Lovely meal and beautiful restaurant area. People with dogs (like us) can sit in a bar and porch area. I was expecting better fish but would definitely go back to try something else. There is a carvery and this is definitely a good place for local campers to visit. Go if you enjoy good beer, lively venue and quick service.

Always a friendly welcome, staff can not do enough to make you feel welcome. A really good choice of menu and offering a good gluten free menu too and an excellent wine list. We all chose something different from menu, steak, fish and vegetarian and all really good quality and enjoyable meals. Also good to see them using local wine!... More
