Cafe by day, restaurant by night. We visited on a Wednesday morning, two adults and 1 child. Arrived very hungry and was not disappointed withthe food. I had a full English and was served two of each bacon, eggs and sausages with fried slice, hash brown and beans all with toast anda mug of tea. My wife had a bacon and sausage bap that was huge, witha cappuccino and our daughter had a junior breakfast (with a juice) that would have been enough for me.
The food was perfectly cooked and not at all greasy. We ended up taking some home for the dog as there was so much food.
This palce is great value (£21) and beats the pants off of any motorway service station.
The evening menu looked good although a bit 70's (in a good way) and there is a fully stocked bar.
Great service and good parking all added up to a good experience.

We sat eating our meal in a busy restaurant after waiting for a table on a busy Sunday lunch time and both agreed " This was one of the BEST Carvery meals we had ever had! Every vegetable dish was unique ! How can you say this about cabbage or potato ? We'll go and try it!!! It is just a shame that we live at the other end of the country and only had the chance to enjoy this on Holiday .but when we return for another break , this venue will be top of our list , regardless of the day of the week!

Had a Sunday carvary, choice of 3 meats, and a huge selection of vegetables, possibly 10 choices...staff friendly, eating area very open plan, tables a little too crammed together for my liking....carvary itself was very tasty and good value for money, if I would change anything, it would be, bigger plates to fit the food on, and less tables and chairs so they aren't all crammed together..I recommend for a lovely Sunday today and will be returning

We stopped here for a light meal on our way down to Ilfracombe. We have stopped here on a number of occasions as it's in a great position and easy to get to. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and are very quick and efficient. On this visit we felt the sandwiches were a bit over priced. However, the food is always of good quality and nicely presented and the convenience of being able to break a journey and enjoy a meal in pleasant surroundings rather than a fast food restaurant is worth paying for. We plan to return and have one of their carverys in the not too distant future.

Stopped off here on way to a business meeting for a coffee and snack. Very friendly greeting and excellent bacon and egg bap. The building has a strange layout but don't let that put you off.
