“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2015

We found this restaurant almost by accident and what a find!
This is a stylish location with a varied and excellent menu. The waiting staff were attentive and friendly, helping with adjustments to dishes to cater for a dietary restriction, which the chef and the kitchens managed beautifully. The food is superbly prepared and very well presented.
Our only regret was that we 'discovered' Claytons the day before we went home, or we would certainly have been back for more.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2015 via mobile

The staff were attentive, courteous and had a good sense of humour. Food delicious and beautifully presented. Great atmosphere. I would recommend Clayton's for any occasion. The staff decorated the table with item I had bought, so all was ready when we arrived. We will be back very soon.

“First class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2015

We called in on spec' for lunch with our family of 4 whilst visiting Barnstaple over Christmas. The lunch menu had something for everyone from sandwiches to fish cakes, salads and burgers; prices from £6 to £11. The food was excellent and the service was quick and efficient. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful and we will certainly return if we are in the area again.

“Silver wedding celebration.....perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2014

We recently celebrated 25 years of happy marriage, by having a family meal at Clayton's, Cross Street, Barnstaple, North Devon.
The menu was wonderful & very varied, local seasonal produce on offer with a great choice.If you go, be sure to try the t-bone steak, possibly one of the best I've ever eaten.
The waiting staff, front of house & the guys behind the bar were attentive, they actually knew the menu & were extremely helpful in deciding our choice. Brilliant service from the initial booking through to completion.
Every course we had was delicious, the drinks we're well priced, & the ambiance was unbeatable.
We will be sure to return, & I'd just like to say a very heartfelt 'well done & thank you' to all of the staff who made our silver wedding celebration such a success. I really can't praise this venue enough.
