Open as a tea room during the day and as a simple English restaurant during the evening. Very good vegetarian choice and a perfectly cooked rump steak for me (not vegetarian, obviously!) Chef/patron Rob was charming and chatty before more customers turned up and he had to return to the kitchen

Enjoyed an evening meal at Lily mays. As a party of four we all enjoyed our food. Starters were plentiful and steaks cooked to perfection. We were so full that we only ordered one sweet between us.
Cafe setting but still cosy and relaxing, for an informal evening meal would recommend and would return.

Me and my wife while on holiday in Devon took a day trip to lynton and lynmouth. We walked out of one cafe in lynton as staff were incredibly indifferent to us even before we sat down. So we came across lily mays cafe the young waitress could not have been nicer only had jacket spuds and drink but was lovely lunch and great service. Next time we are in lynton we know where to eat.

This restaurant was recommended by the B&B we stayed at recently. We had steak on Friday night and the meal was so nice we went back the next night for another meal. Food was freshly and very well cooked and the portions were very generous. I couldn't eat all I had ordered the first night and didn't have room for a pudding. Unusual for me. Staff were very friendly, attentive and the service was excellent. If you stay in Lynton, eat at Lily Mays!!

They certainly know how to cook a good steak here. Loved the homely feel to this little restaurant, Very friendly staff. The home made puddings were delicious would recommend to anyone visiting the area.
