This is the second time I've been here, and once again had an excellent meal. This time, I went the whole hog and had three courses. Barnstaple is not in itself a major tourist town, so it's all the more delightful to find a restaurant of this calibre, especially at such a reasonable price.
I had the scallops as a starter, three perfectly cooked scallops, tender, flavoursome and delicious, on a potato fondant (cooked just right) on a bed of crushed petits pois with a hint of lemon. Sublime.
For main I had moules frites, local mussels cooked perfectly again in a rich cream sauce.
Technically, I was now too stuffed for a dessert, but that didn't deter me. I had the dark chocolate brownie with white chocolate and Malteser ice cream. Again, just wonderful.
The presentation was lovely, the service friendly and attentive without being pushy, and all in all a Michelin starred experience at a small town price.
