“A real gem”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We have often had an informal lunch here and always enjoyed it so decided to try the restaurant in the evening. We were not dissapointed. The staff were helpful and friendly,the menu impressive and we enjoyed the innovative food in a relaxed atmosphere. Fantastic location and we were treated to anamazing sunset while we ate.with the added bonus of leaving the car in Barnstaple and travelling to and back by bus.

Couldn't fault a single thing! Superb view, good food, friendly staff, quick service, good value for money. The menu is extensive, including vegetarian, fish and meat options. Good selection of wine. We'll be back.

“Friendly welcome, good food”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Came on recommendation of our B&B host. Glad we did. Lovely spot - lucky to see a beautiful sunset across the estuary. Welcoming staff and owner. Busy but didn't feel rushed or noisy. Food was really tasty (salmon & prawns in mild curry sauce and steak pie). Would certainly come here again.

“Still good but”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Dined here again twice recently still love it and the view is amazing. Food is still good but the prices have increased quite noticeably and we dined elsewhere for a similar price but much highe standard of food. Only serve peas and i'm sure we had 2 vegetables in the past so the veg does let it down, massive portions of chips still but being a veg lover it is missing for the price. Will still go back though but not quite as often
