Our first venture to No 82 and The Greenhouse Restaurant, and we can honestly say that we were pleasantly surprised and pleased to be there. Nik Westacott, the owner, greeted us and made us feel welcomed and cared for. The menu was interesting with freshly prepared and cooked food and the wines were competitively priced. For one person, working alone, Nik really excelled and kept all his plates spinning - ensuring that everyone was cared for and producing some excellent home cooked food. We shall certainly return, and use Nik's catering services when appropriate. A great addition to the village. Thank you.

We decided to stay at this B&B for 2 nights on our way to the West Country, and it was the best decision we could have made. We were greeted warmly by Nik Westacott, the owner, who could not have been more friendly and welcoming. As there was nobody else staying he let us have the spacious suite, which was much appreciated. Our room therefore comprised a large comfortable double bed, quality linen, and a relaxing sitting area with sofa in front of the TV (which was a bonus for me as I was able to watch the six nations rugby in comfort). There was also a small fridge outside with fresh milk as well as drinks and wine to purchase if required. The room is at the front of the house, so on the main road, but it is double-glazed and we weren’t disturbed by any traffic noise.

As might be gathered from earlier reviews, Nik is a professional chef, who now runs his own business in outside catering as well as catering for functions or special dinners/lunches in his small but intimate dining room in a separate building at the front of his premises. This is where breakfast is served – and what a good breakfast it was. It started with a lovely dish of fresh fruit with an attractively presented yoghurt and fruit puree, fruit juice, a variety of cereals and a comprehensive cooked breakfast, accompanied by a selection of breads/toast and muffins. It’s certainly a bonus having a professional chef prepare breakfast, as it was, of course, all beautifully cooked and presented.

We did not sample any of his meals other than breakfast, so can’t comment on the restaurant side, but if breakfast is anything to go by I would happily eat there, as I am sure it would be of the same high standards as everything else.

Highy recommended

A friend recommended Nik Westacott's restaurant to us, suggesting that the £5 Friday deal would be a good way to have 'a taster'. All well and good but the £5 Friday deal was already so popular when I contacted Nik that they were full throughout the short season; however, Nik had been farsighted enough to offer Thursdays as a fall-back deal and we gladly accepted a date a few weeks later. We're so glad that we did: the dining-room, though relatively small for the number of diners, was arranged in such a way (magic, perhaps?) that it didn't feel cramped at all. Fresh flowers on each table, a jug of cold water and a ready basket of what seemed to be home-baked bread; all these provided without our having to ask. Nik took our order; the choice was good - if inevitably limited by the need to keep costs within reasonable bounds - and the food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will go again.

I have been desperate to try Nik's place since he opened but Friday night was my first opportunity......and it definitely won't be my last! Fantastic food, great atmosphere and impeccable service! I can't recommend this place enough - and in fact have been doing so since we left.

This private party was booked in advance, and I thought it was a lovely setting for a small party. Nik has converted the 'greenhouse' (no longer glass) into a cosy dining area. He laid the tables beautifully, and served fantastic food with humour. Nothing was too much bother. If you are having a function I would highly recommend Nik and this place.This was an absolutely fantastic evening.
