Visited on a wet Friday evening in November. It looks quite appealing from the outside and inside is spacious and rather dimly lit. The service was friendly but the one server was overstretched, covering all the tables as well as dealing with take-away orders. While we were there, someone came in for a 12 pizza take-away order which did hold things up a bit.
We had pizzas, which were OK although you could see into the kitchen area and how the toppings were taken from an array of plastic containers and dropped onto a (pre-made?) base. I suppose that's what most pizza places do, but it looked more like a factory than a kitchen - didn't look like much "love" went into it!
So I would say overall was a bit disappointing. We probably would not have gone there again had we been in the area for longer.

After dinning at the oak room, I was dubious about trying another restaurant which was trying to be different in Lynton. I was pleasantly surprised! Food was good, with large portions and was served in a relax manner. Both the garlic bread with cheese (which is a must!) and pizza were huge, fresh and full of flavour. My partner ordered a pasta which was equally as good, but lacked that 'kick'. When we asked for chilli oil, it was slightly bland and unfortunately they didn't have any Tabasco which was a shame as it would have added some much needed flavour. Restaurant was clean and contemporary and did lack a bit of an atmosphere but the wine list does make up for this! Definitely worth a visit.

Great to see this old building once again put to good use. Very welcoming staff, very good real fresh-made pizza (they cater happily for vegans and veggies, too) a short but good wine list and all at good prices. The salad bar is a tad unimaginative, but generally the thought and effort put into the place make it well worth a visit (or two) - all in all, another fine feather in Lynton`s gastronomic cap.

This has just opened this year and the food is excellent. made the mistake of ordering 2 garlic bread to start and they turned out to be the size of a large pizza each so be warned. Great variety of toppings.
They also do a 'buffet' eat as much as you like for about £8.00 each including salad bar
Well worth a try

Thank robert m
