We have never had a bad meal here. The food is delicious and well presented, the hosts and staff charming and the restaurant a delight. The prices are also very reasonable and to be honest I can't wait for my next visit!

Excellent dinner and very reasonably priced. One of the joys of the South Hams is that there are so many little jewels in villages and hamlets waiting to be discovered. The First and Last is one of these

A lovely bistro/restaurant. You select off a smallish menu and I can recommend majority of the food. I have been several times and never disappointed. Not to pricey. Lovely atmosphere when busy. Staff are great young and polite
