“Top notch!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We thought twice before visiting this restaurant, worried it may lack atmosphere. However the young waitresses are excellent, very friendly and laid back, attentive without being obtrusive. The food was delicious, lamb shank and steak both cooked perfectly. The best meal of our 3 night break and wish we'd gone there on first night, as would probably have gone back. Its a shame its location means it doesn't get the same interest as say The Oak Room, which is great but Vanilla Pod has the edge!

“Amazing steak!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

From the outside this restaurant didn't seem hugely atmospheric, however it more than compensated with the quality of food! My husband and I have very differing tastes with steak, but both were cooked to perfection and accompanied by a wonderful sales and dressing and home cooked wedges. The home made homous and dips that were part of our starter were excellent! Highly recommend this very understated establishment

“Really great tasting food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We really enjoyed our meal at the Vanilla Pod. The restaurant is in the heart of Lynton. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The food was really tasty and fresh. We enjoyed the variety on the menu and that there was a few different option. I had meat balls to start and ratatouille for main course which was blooming delicious, washed down with a lovely Sharphams wine. A lovely end to our long weekend and only a short stroll to our accommodation up the hill. Compliments to the hard working lady chef.
