We have been here for coffee on several occasions in recent years. Today's experience was such that we probably won't go again. The staff, a man and two(?) women were starting to put up the Christmas decorations. Any customers on this cold frosty morning were obviously not welcome. It was a very much "take it or leave it " approach.... More

We had seen good things on TripAdvisor and with it being out of season there isn't a huge amount of choice in Lynmouth so we gave it a try. My partner and I are certainly glad we did. From the outside it looks like any old pub, inside is full of character. The restaurant reminded us of 'the olden days'... More

Even out of season the bar was buzzing with locals and visitors giving this a really good vibe - we liked it so much we went 3 nights out of the 4 we were there and ate there twice. Out of season the restaurant appears to close mid week but the same food was served in the bar area and... More

This is a great place, (verging on 5 stars). A warm genuine welcome to a pleasant pub type pub. Smaller than expected but very comfortable. Good food from what I noticed around and from the huge sandwiches we had.

This is TripAdvisor's top rated place in Lynmouth and fully deserves it. Quality doorstep sarnies with chips on the side plus excellent Exmoor Gold ale. Not the cheapest menu but you couldn't get better quality. They say that you get what you pay for and this is a perfect example. Walking up to Lynton probably wasn't the wisest thing to... More

A group of us had lunch in the bar and we were not disappointed. I had a crab sandwich which was filled to the brim with lovely thick granary bread. Chips were really crunchy and delicious. Great selection of beers. Very enjoyable time.

We popped in here on our first visit to Lynmouth, having heard from another holidaymaker staying in our Guest House that the pub part does amazing sandwiches. We'll, we can now confirm, they certainly do! None of that 'flat-pack' supermarket bread here or meagre fillings - We received lovely plump sandwiches, generously filled and on lovely, springy, freshly cut bread.... More

Our apologies if you thought us to be abrupt when asking for your order to be placed, that would never have been the intention.We do stop serving food at lunch time at 2.30 pm and try to get the orders to the kitchen within that time. That said judging by your review you enjoyed your chosen sandwiches leaving great comments... More

What a lovely place. We didn't book but when we arrived we were greeted by very friendly staff who offered us a choice of eating in the bar or the restaurant. We opted for the restaurant. The atmosphere was lovely, lots of people but not over the top noise. A good selection of wines and the menu offered a good... More

Called in for an early evening drink and returned for a meal. A lovely pub with friendly landlord and regulars. The meal was superb. I had ham and chicken terrine followed by crab taster which consisted of a small cup of bisque, some picked crab meat, crab toast and a whole claw. My husband had scallops and fish & chips.... More
