Popped in here during a visit to the Valley of the Rocks. The scones were absolutely delicious and was complimented by an excellent cup of tea. Lovely garden setting and good to see that it was dog friendly

We went there for a lunch-time snack. It was very busy and only one waitress. Had beautiful sandwiches with wonderful bread and an enormous pot of good strong tea. The savoury scone teas looked good - we could hear one German family um uming about how much they were enjoying their scones with cheese etc.

This is a lovely little restaurant in Lynton that serves home cooked food and always has a few specials on the menu. A decent wine selection plus superb service makes everybody feel more than welcome the minute you walk in

This is very much a sweet little tea shop. I am a single traveller and had dinner here one evening. I didn't at all feel out of place eating alone and the environment felt warming.
The service, food! Food quality and price were all very fitting in this charming village.

We have been regular customers at this restaurant for many years, along with other family members. The food is always exceptional, served in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and there is always a specials board to choose from. Don't miss Friday nights, which are steak nights and if you fancy an excellent "T" Bone steak make sure you pre-order with Rob a couple of days before.
If you are visiting Lynton area this restaurant is a "must" visit for all the family.
