We ate in the bar a few times as there was a nice buzzy atmosphere. The food was great especially the calamari. Had the steak a couple of times too which was very nice with home cooked chips.

Friendly pub where beer and food are very good and dogs welcome in the bar. Plus it's in an amazing location. It's on the pricey side for pub food (£14.50 for fish and chips, £3.70 for Exmoor Ale and £5.20 for glass of Rioja), but...More

We do get very busy and would always recommend pre booking for the restaurant, that said we will always try our hardest to seat any body who is looking to eat, this can incur a wait. Our food is fresh, cooked to order and where...More

We love eating here, we've stayed in the rooms and eaten in the bar as well as the restaurant on several occasions. The food is good, on our last visit took a while to arrive and it's not cheap. That said, we would return.

We found one of the bar staff a bit gruff/not particularly friendly, but, other than that, we ate there on both nights of our stay in Lynmouth and the waiting staff in the restaurant were friendly and helpful. The food was good and plentiful and...More

Very good meal here, service was quick, would definitely eat here again if I was in the area. Don't be fooled by the "just a pub" image.
