Don't get me wrong , this is really high quality cooking - but I came away with a slight "style over substance" feeling . Yes it's expensive - any one booking is hardly going to be surprised by this - but is it worth it? On balance, probably yes, although it does benefit from the fact there is such limited... More

An absolute treat. Such a warm welcome by Noel, intelligent, interesting and above all delicious, beautiful food. The food is complimented by the lovely surroundings, quality artwork and stylish handmade crockery. Highly recommend you eat here before the waiting list starts stacking up.

We went for our anniversary, and had the 9 course tasting menu and wine flight. Each course was stunning, amazing flavours, tastes and combinations. Noel prides himself on using as much local produce as he can from foraging to local suppliers. We sat at the Chef's table and watched Noel preparing each dish. We had a great night, it's a... More

I was spending the weekend in Woolacombe with my sister visiting family and my wonderful boss booked this for us as a treat. We had the 7 course taster menu with Wine!

This is one of the finest dining experience I have had recently. I have been here a couple of times and love it more with each visit. The team behind this restaurant just make the restaurant what it is. The 9 course taster menu was what was needed after a busy day playing in the surf. The wine list and... More

We sat at the chef's counter and enjoyed the casual conversational style that this allowed with each course. We had the full 9 scrumptious plates, and enjoyed finding out about which nook of the south west each food had come from. We washed it all down with a selection of fine mezcal while the chef enthusiastically chatted about his kitchen... More

A fantastic experience out of season where we and our family were made extremely welcome at very short notice and treated to one of the best culinary experiences I have had. Compares extremely well in my opinion to any top restaurants - London, Paris, Tokyo, Barcelona, Amsterdam, etc

With all respect to the various hotels etc Woolacombe has lacked a fine dining restaurant and now it has it . There are few compromises here, tasting menus only, 7 or 9 courses plus amuse bouche, £75 or £95 and the wine flight £50 quid which may be great value but looks steep on the face of it ( the...
