Dropped in for coffee and a cake but after looking at the menu we stayed for lunch. Toasted and plain sandwiches went down very well. However the toasted ham, cheese and pickle had the pickle inside the toasted sarnie rather than cold pickle on the plate. Maybe just me but I'm sure that is what most people would expect...... warm... More

I enjoyed the visit, the food was great and the staff were friendly. The restaurant is in an ideal location and well worth a visit if you are staying in Croyde for a holiday. The selection of food on offer was good and the fish fresh and cooked well. We were a party of 7 with 4 young teenagers and... More

We've visited Blue Groove for breakfast and evening meals every October half term for the last 3 years. The food is consistently good - especially the fish dishes. I had the fish bouillabaisse and hubbie had fish and chips on our last visit. They do kids portion of mussels which my daughter loves. Breakfast is also lovely and we tried... More

Great cafe in the centre of Croyde. Welcoming, friendly service, with great hot chocolate. Just the place to warm up after a bracing walk on the beach.

We had a great midweek night here. We had cocktails, I had seabass, hubby had curry, the food and cocktails were great! Recommend Long Island tea! We got chatting with the bar man and had a fun couple of hours here. Thanks for giving us a great date night.

The beef enchiladas was beautiful. Fully loaded and melted cheese! Superb. My partner had the bouillabaisse which looked and tasted incredible. Our friend had the lamb curry which looked great too. One note.. The flatbread didn't look homemade as the menu implied. Other than that, this is the best food in Croyde!!

Took a drive out to Croyde from Barnstaple after a recommendation from friends. It was well worth it. I had a light 'brunch' of eggs benedict and was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and the food piping hot. While we were there a steady stream of people arrived for coffees and food, surely a good advert for this... More

Lovely meal here but eater beware. If you don't like your curries hot avoid. Wife had mussels which was very enjoyable. All in all a pleasant atmosphere and great service.

Blue Groove in Croyde, North Devon, oozes unique personality and refuses to be put in a box. Take that classic beachy style and add a dose of sophistication, take a cosmopolitan feel and place it among North Devon charm, take a burger and make it gourmet, find a friendly bunch of waiting staff that genuinely enjoy their work, and throw in some unmissable fresh fish and seafood, and you’re some way to working out what this café, restaurant and bar has to offer.Review by Food & Drink
