Family 60th anniversary party for 32 people held at No 6 - excellent pre-planning service, amazing food and service catered to everyones needs. Highly recommended for quiet night for two, larger group or celebration of choice

Excellent meal had tonight. Cannot fault the waitress (owner) or the chef as had the best food and service. Quality food and excellently presented and very fresh and good portions. In terms of value for money I cannot fault tonight's choice.

Went here for a family meal and had a fantastic evening. Hard to decide what to eat so there was a lot of tasting everyone's else's meals! Without exception each plate was so delicious and attractively presented. Absolutely recommend and we'll be back again.

Had a groupon voucher for this restaurant to treat ourselves before arrival of number 2 child. We booked in for the evening of the 27th Dec, peak festive season. They agreed they would open the restaurant in the evening for us, but we were the only people there. Service was excellent, and we were looked after perfectly throughout the dinner.... More

We were part of a group for a weekday Christmas lunch which can be a challenge for any restaurant! Unfortunately, despite a warm welcome, the food that some of our party ate was not as good as we had been led to believe it would be and we were ultimately disappointed. Although other reviewers rate this restaurant highly, I don’t... More

Having recently reached a "significant age", I wanted to get all my local friends together to enjoy their company doing what I enjoy most - eating good food and drinking good wine. The venue was a no-brainer - it had to be No. 6, which I have reviewed before. Because of numbers, it was necessary to have 2 meals, one... More

Our only regret about this restaurant is that we live 60 miles away and will not be able to visit as often as we would like. The ambience of the place is warm and cosy and the service is friendly and exemplary. We both had a "fish out" with fish courses for our starters and mains . The fish was... More

No 6 is just a stone's throw away from the town centre - come along, sit outside and sip an aperitif with some juicy, marinated olives. Order your Buckland Newton venison steak, Lyme Bay kings scallops or the freshly delivered Gurnard and indulge yourself with an exceptional dessert. Even, if you are in for a short lunch, there is plenty on the menu to get your taste buds going.
