Amazing food, great, friendly service- couldn't ask for more! The restaurant is small and as ever there was one noisy person which partly spoiled our enjoyment, but not the staff's fault!

Enjoyed an excellent meal here. The chilli beef starter had a wonderful mix of flavours, and the local pollack main course was excellent. My wife had a very good halloumi starter with a nice T-bone main.

I don't know Braunton, and the area looked a bit iffy, but this is a great restaurant. Genuinely friendly, helpful and welcoming service made a great first impression. And the food was really very good indeed. An inventive and imaginative menu, with lots of options...More
