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.

Excellent evening out with friends. Great atmosphere, menu choice & food quality. Service was very friendly and they obviously know their regulars well. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We make sure to book 2 or 3 tables in advance as they restaurant is so good we never want to miss a month and on this visit we bought some memories virgins ! Once again , like every visit service is exceptional, professional yet...warm and welcoming and our friends were made to feel like they’d known them forever despite it being their first time! The food is just sublime, it’s a level of cooking not often found in North Devon, Brett truly is an exceptional chef and a man of many talents , flavours just sing together, nothing competing for dominance , every mouthful is a pure delight and it’s a sad occasion when we’ve finished ! There’s already 3 more dates in the diary to look forward too ! Whatever you do Brett, Naomi and Libby don’t stop doing it !More

We were so pleased to get a reservation for dinner at Memories and to be able to introduce our friends to our favourite restaurant. It didn’t disappoint and proved to be the highlight of their stay with us. Our meal was superb from start to...finish. The great thing is that it is always so difficult to choose what to have… we all agreed that we could have eaten everything off the menu. In addition we were served a beautifully smooth and tasty soup as an amuse bouche to get our taste buds going. I could honestly have just eaten a huge bowl, it was so delicious. Beautiful mini French loaves and butter are automatically brought to the table and a generous side portion of vegetables accompany the main course, no extra charge for either which is most unusual these days. Brett and Naomi really are the perfect team and along with excellent food guests are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome and superlative service. We are always amazed at the exceptional value for money too. I would not hesitate to recommend a visit to this lovely restaurant - but be sure to book early, with this sort of quality reservations can be hard to get.More

Can’t rate this place highly enough, we’ve been to Memories almost every month for over a year , the standard just doesn’t change, the food is sublime, the service slick and professional yet friendly, they seem to know what you need before you do, the...young waitress ( their daughter ) is a true asset too, clearly trained by Naomi who knows how to run front of house and this shows in Libby’s knowledge and professionalism and is always on the ball Brett’s food is just incredible, full of flavour, perfect seasoning and beautifully presented , this chap knows seriously good food and balances every flavour , it is by far our favourite restaurant in north Devon and we continue to book time and time again for all the reasons above , they book up quickly for a reason, get a table when you can would be my adviceMore

It is a small uncrowded dining room, very neat and clean. The food was exceptional, the service was attentive and unhurried. A small but choice wine list. A very good dining experience.

Another glorious meal at Memories. Brett certainly understands how to balance flavours. His skills are evident with every course. The complimentary soup was truly delicious. My husband had the most tender, perfectly cooked Calamari. The accompanying Thai salad was just pokey enough. He followed this...by the lamb loin. It’s unusual these days to find lamb with real flavour, but Brett & Naomi must source the best. Delicious. I had fresh, perfectly cooked Plaice with a sauce that was the perfect foil to its sweetness. We could only manage one pudding between us, but wow. The subtle warmth of the ginger in the sponge really made us smile. Thank you Brett, Naomi and Libby. Don’t know how you do it, but don’t stop!!More

This place never fails to please, if anything it gets better and better A recent visit meant we enjoyed Thai style calamari salad and home smoked salmon tart for starters , the calamari was so fresh and tender and the accompanying salad was everything a...Thai salad should be, hot spicy, sweet and sour ! The salmon tart was in contrast smooth and creamy and bloody delicious! Mains of venison and lamb were outstanding and perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth The reason we return time and time again is because the food is all home made , delicious and so very reasonable for the quality you will get I 100% recommend you try here but book early as they only seat 12/14 with one sitting but my god is it worth the waitMore
