“Breakfast”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

A good variety and they know how to make scrambled egg! More than enough to keep you going until dinner

“Great food and great views”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

We had a meal here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the food was excellent! The food is locally sourced and reasonably priced too. Not cheap for Lynton but compared to home we found it good value for money. Definately get a window seat.

“Very fine food”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

Looking for somewhere a bit special for dinner, this is the place to go in Lynton. Locally sourced ingredients, cooked with imagination and creativity - try the goats cheese with beetroot chutney for starters, and the best end of lamb wrapped in spinach on crushed potatoes is superb.

The only thing letting the side down slightly was the wine - our choice was unavailable. The house red recommended to us was a Cab Sav/Merlot the kind of which you'd find in most supermarkets. It was ok, just not up to the standard of the food.

It's a quiet, casual and unpretentious atmosphere, with fantastic views out to sea - try to get a window table if you can. Service is friendly, efficient and competent. It's not a cheap eat (there are other places in Lynton for that) and portion sizes are spot on for proper 3-course dining (i.e. not ridiculously big) but the excellent quality of the food justifies the bill.

I'd definately go back.

Reviewed 2 September 2012

Two huge plates of local, homemade food plus soft drinks for less than one course in a standard chain restaurant and tasted lovely.
